The very first steps for reconstruction are currently being taken: installing water and electricity. There will be a division of the clinic into 3 rooms connected to each other;
1. Delivery room
2. Shower facilities for post-delivery
3. Observation room for mother and child.
The decision is made to renovate rather than build new facilities to reduce costs. Liberi hopes to raise €30,000 this year so she can get started!
The aim of creating a delivery center in 2024 in the old health post is of great importance to improve the overall care of pregnant women in the area and reduce complications during and after birth. It is well-known that quality medical care during pregnancy and delivery is crucial to the health and well-being of both the mother and child.
Prenatal care: Pregnant women should receive regular check-ups and screenings to ensure the health of both the mother and the baby. This includes monitoring the baby’s growth, checking blood pressure and detecting any complications.
Delivery care: The hospital should be equipped with the necessary facilities and medical staff to guide safe deliveries. This involves providing professional support during childbirth, monitoring the vital functions of the mother and the child and handling potential emergencies.
Postnatal care: After birth, it is important to continue monitoring the health of the mother and the baby. This includes providing information and support for breastfeeding, checking the mother’s recovery processes and offering any necessary medical care for the baby.
Creating a specialized gynecology department in the old medical center will provide a safe and dedicated environment for pregnant women, where they can rely on high-quality medical care. This will increase the chances of a successful and healthy birth and reduce maternal and child mortality. It is a crucial step to ensure that pregnant women in Kamimbi and the surrounding areas have access to the care they need, allowing them to give birth safely and with the right support.
