  • HerStory: Let's Hear From The Women
    was a girl and the baby girl is okay Last week I visited her in the hospital It had been two weeks since I had seen her in the mobile clinic when I referred her to the hospital Last week I was working a nightshift at Hospital Ste Therese A woman came into the maternity ward from the operating room She had been in there for 6 hours because she had major postpartum bleeding She bled a lot before she came to the hospital The baby died inside of her belly at home I wanted to give a blood transfusion to the mother We went to the Red Cross but they had no blood The mother was so anemic by then that she was delirious and went into shock She stood up and ripped out her IV We got her to lay back down and we put the IV back in I kept checking her blood pressure and it kept getting lower and lower The doctor and I called her parents into the room and explained that we wanted to transport her to the hospital in Mirebalais to receive blood Even though we explained that she needed blood her parents thought that she was the victim of Vodou and insisted on taking her out of the hospital to visit a witchdoctor She died in the middle of the road She was 26 years old and had one baby already at home Eugine Clinise My name is Eugine I had a son before this He died when he was nine months old from diarrhea Now this baby is two months old I carried him a long way to see the midwives He is healthy thanks to God I came here during my pregnancy The midwives are kind and learned many things Marie Ange Mobile Clinic Midwife I have two girls Tashae is six and Chrisnelle is two Tashae wants to be a doctor but I want her to be a financial planner she is good at business She sells candy and counts money When I was in the seventh grade my sister almost died of preeclampsia and that was when I knew I wanted to have a job helping people I wanted to learn medicine and be able to take care of women who were pregnant I hope that the mobile clinic always continues here There are so many women who don t have access to care Without these clinics they have no one We are here to help them Some cases are hard One case recently was very complicated There was a woman who was 25 weeks pregnant We had to transfer her from Fombrun to Hospital Ste Therese because her blood pressure was so high The doctor checked her and a few days later the baby died Because she was transferred her family wasn t with her so she was scared and she had no visitors I don t know how she got home to her village Philomène Thelemaque

  • Mobile Clinic Through the Eyes of Pulitzer Winning Journalist (Photos)
    vehicle a pile of suitcases full of equipment and medications and a group of American and Haitian midwives dedicated to saving the lives of women and infants here on Haiti s Central Plateau The distance between the tiny three room house in Savanne Halein to which we are driving and the Midwives For Haiti headquarters in Hinche is only a few miles But the drive into the countryside over what can only charitably called roads through a stream that is a raging river in the rainy season feels one hundred miles and one hundred years long The landscape is beautiful but the beauty is misleading for it masks the reality in this area with the worst maternal infant and mortality in children younger than five in the entire Western Hemisphere We in the passenger cage on the back of the vehicle don t even have to hold on as we drop into ruts and bounce over rocks on the way to the dot on the map that is Savanne Halein for we are crammed in so tightly against each other with most of the equipment that will become a clinic strapped onto the roof and what doesn t fit there jammed against our feet There is no clinic waiting for us under the hot morning sun just a tiny empty three room concrete house a few stray dogs and roosters and a line of pregnant women and young mothers with infants already waiting And within less than 30 minutes tables are covered with medical forms test strips for urine and blood medical records and blood pressure cuffs three beds in one tiny room are covered with clean sheets benches are lined up for seating and a combination prenatal and maternity clinic is open for business The waiting women take numbers

  • Teaching Program
    Constant Contact Volunteer Teaching Program Midwives For Haiti s education program to teach midwifery skills to Haitian nurses is the core of our programs and has grown considerably over the years Each week volunteer midwives and other medical professionals visit Haiti and supplement the student s skill development and learning International volunteers donate their time and knowledge to assist our Haitian instructors with teaching and demonstrating midwifery skills and maternal and infant care A typical day for a volunteer may include classroom teaching with a translator travelling with the Mobile Prenatal Clinic to provide care to women living in rural areas or working with students at the hospital as they care for laboring and delivering mothers Volunteers should expect to teach our students how to provide quality maternal care rather than providing the care themselves We have developed a culturally appropriate and challenging curriculum to teach and assess midwifery skills Our student s main text and primary reference which has been translated into Creole is A Book for Midwives by Susan Klein For prenatal care we use the guidelines from Saving Mother s Lives What really works by the White Ribbon Alliance for Motherhood Our protocols for treatment are taken from Pregnancy Childbirth Postpartum and Newborn Care A guide for essential practice The World Health Organization s list of the required skills and abilities of a Skilled Birth Attendant is our guide for measuring student achievement Advanced skills are assessed by ACNM s Life Saving Skills handbooks Since 2006 Midwives for Haiti has graduated 95 Skilled Birth Attendants who are working throughout the country providing quality maternal care to their Haitian sisters In 2013 alone our graduates provided over 60 000 prenatal care visits and attended over 12 000 births at the three hospitals five birth centers and mobile clinics
