Safe Birth Training

So much has happened in the last 3 weeks that I can hardly even believe it myself! So many great things… and I can’t help but share!

October 29 & 30 we had Safe Birth training at the World Orphans guesthouse for 5-6 women from each of our 12 partner churches. It was nothing short of amazing! Carol Denny, CPM, with Global Health Training came alongside World Orphans and spent 2 days pouring into the women from each community teaching them vital sign skills and other ways they can respond when a birth goes bad. – Most Haitian women give birth at home by choice and lack of affordable medical care, so even if this training just saves ONE life of a mother and keeps ONE family together…. SO WORTH IT!

What to do when there is shoulder dystocia?? -- They know now :)
I was so blessed to be able to teach blood pressure & pulse to these amazing women!
