One Heart World-Wide's mission is to decrease maternal and neonatal mortality and morbidity in remote rural areas. Our partnership with them is helping women in Bhojpur, Nepal receive skilled birth attendant training.
Skilled Birth Attendant Spotlight: Ms. Bishnu Gurung
“This training was beneficial as we learned many clinical technicalities to save and protect both the mother’s and baby’s life. Before this training I was unable to handle the delivery complications. I was in a dilemma before, but now after getting this training I am confident in my ability to save the lives of mothers and newborns by giving them proper care as needed. Indeed SBA training has given me more strength and courage to save lives at birth.”
Ms. Bishnu thinks that this training has solved a lot of problems that were present previously.
“Before the training there used to be a lot of complications related to the delivery, which had to be referred to the district hospital for management. That took four hours by vehicle and 10 hours by foot. Pregnant women who are referred are always at risk during the transportation. SBA training has improved the way we take care of mothers and newborns by enabling us to manage birth complications locally, unless the case is too serious to be referred. I am really grateful to One Heart World-Wide for providing financial support for my SBA training, which is helping to save the lives of mothers and newborns in these remote rural areas of Bhojpur, Nepal during and after delivery.”
