It was super having Hosiana with us for seven weeks for the fieldwork aspect of her college course. She spent time across many of our departments at Kivulini Maternity Centre, including fistula, family planning and maternity.
Many vulnerable and marginalised teenage girls deliver their babies with Maternity Africa. Hosiana spent a lot of time with them, helping them to understand how to support their babies. In particular, she focused on maternal care (hygiene, nutrition and dangers signs about the baby’s health), how to breastfeed, the importance of breastfeeding, and family planning.
Thank you very much Hosiana for being with us, and for all that you did, making childbirth safe. You were great!
