#MaternalCare: Alabiamo Foundation Facts and Figures 22nd February 2018

We have recorded 10 infant mortality and 1 maternal mortality 99 percent of these deaths occurred during child birth and complications that accompanied the phase for most women but in this report the women of Sogunro community. So our event yesterday was with a difference. They were already waiting for us by the time we arrived as one of the punctual and consistent pregnant women told us about Mrs Latifat. We knew she was close to term as at the last time we saw her 8/2/2018. She assured us that she had her delivery covered as they all have different TBAs who attend to their delivery.

But lo and behold, we were welcomed with the sad news of Mrs Latifat’s baby who did not make it during birth. It was painful, it still is every member of the team found it disturbing especially the clinical ones because her pregnancy never posed any threat. She was healthy and so was the baby as at the last time the midwives checked her. Alas the birth hour dashed all efforts down the drain because her birth attendant wasn’t skilled one whom most of these women patronise because she seems cheap and affordable compared to others around there. So we all took turns addressing them this time it was beyond routine health talk but the importance of seeking skilled healthcare providers during childbirth something we can’t afford to give these women now because we don’t have a maternity centre of our own.

Eventually, we were able to attend to 19 pregnant women, immunised 19 babies (2 set of twins boy&girl) we gave 10 of these pregnant women tetanus injection and also had two follow up visits for her HIV/AIDS positive mother whose 1 year old is also positive. She was given her vitamin A shit as well. The second visit was to Mary Oke the mother of twin girls who is also a recipient of our women empowerment microloan

Thank you for making all of these possible.
