Identifying and Addressing Needs in Rural Areas

Santa Khanal

“I have been conducting normal delivery cases since last year. During this period I have encountered a few cases of PPH and asphyxia, which was not easy for me to handle, and made me nervous, as I was not an SBA. Such crucial situations motivated me to take the SBA training through which I could save the life of mothers and babies by managing the complications applying skilled methods. Most of the pregnant mothers here are from poor families and cannot afford to travel to big hospitals if there are complications. In such situation it will be helpful for them to have an SBA in this birthing center who could manage the delivery complications instantly unless the case is serious. Many thanks to One Heart World Wide for identifying the needs of the pregnant mothers in the rural areas by helping them to give services through a SBA like us who could apply the skills learned from SBA training in the most effective way by saving lives at birth.”
