Infection, breathing difficulty or prematurity are just some of the reasons why a baby may need to be transferred to the paediatric ward after birth. MAMA also supports the neonatal services at our partner hospital, Azur Health Centre IV in Hoima town.
December 2015 saw our first mandatory training for staff at Azur Clinic, led by Sarah Coxon, consultant midwife from Wexham Park Hospital.
MAMA helped to improve resourcing and facilities at Tonya’s Health Centre.
Simple skin-to-skin ‘kangaroo’ care has been proven to improve the outcomes of neonates, especially those born too early, of low birth weight or who are sick.
Earlier in 2015 we held a cake sale and raised an amazing £930. This was all put towards purchasing a dry heat steriliser for the maternity wards at Azur Clinic.
