Delivery Kit for a Midwife

$
$10.00
Gives supplies for 1 childbirth
Gift Description:
$10 gives a "Mama Kit" for a community midwife to assist with one woman's delivery. Delivery kits include the necessary sanitary supplies, such as a plastic sheet to lie on, cotton gauze pads, gloves, a cord ligature, soap to clean the newborn, and other essentials for a clean delivery. Even when a pregnant woman is able to find and afford a midwife, she often doesn't have the supplies needed to give birth. This allows for a safe pregnancy, reducing complications and improving both the mother's and the baby's health.
