Zelly is the head of our labour ward here at Kivulini and is affectionately known by many as Mama. She has been a nurse and midwife for 32 years and has been with us at Kivulini since we opened in June 2018. Before that, she worked with Maternity Africa for a number of years in our last project at Selian Hospital. Over the years Zelly has not only delivered thousands of babies but has trained many midwives and doctors in the skills of labour and birth.
She is fiercely passionate about maternal health and cares deeply for women . You’ll find her working hard in labour ward, showing kindness to patients and always has time to keep the team going with her smile and her laughter.
We really value Zelly’s years of experience and her ability to manage very difficult emergency situations that happen frequently during labour . She is an enormous blessing to us here at Kivulini and Labour ward would not be the same without her presence.
Theses hands have welcomed thousands of babies into the world and have led the team in saving so many lives. We look forward to celebrating the safe delivery of many more with our Mama at the helm.
Thank you Mama Zelly !
