Last month at Kivulini Maternity Centre we were delighted to reach our highest number of deliveries within a month. We celebrate the high standard of care that our staff are committed to and the enormous work that went into attaining this outcome.

We are well on the way to our goal of 200 deliveries every month!

So many deliveries are to high risk mums and are late referrals to the centre. One of our partnering organisations recently came across a woman, Elizabeth, who was having her first baby in a small rural health dispensary.

Elizabeth was in obstructed labour and was at high risk of obstetric fistula. The baby was in a life threatening condition. Elizabeth was transferred to Kivulini Maternity Centre’s experienced clinical team of midwives, a doctor, a theatre team and a laboratory technician awaited her.

Following Elizabeth’s initial assessment, she was moved directly to theatre to have an emergency Caesarian Section. Both Elizabeth and her precious baby survived, are both healthy and have now been discharged back to their family and community.

We are grateful for another wonderful outcome and for all the hard work by Maternity Africa staff to make it happen.
