MATERNAL HEALTH EDUCATION PROGRAM

In remote parts of Rwanda, pregnant mothers have little access to life saving prenatal education, putting unborn babies and their mothers at risk. Warning signs are missed and babies are lost.

For many women, the first time they see a medical professional is the day they go into labor, or once they have already lost their baby.

This has to change.
And we need your help.

Hands Producing Hope has partnered with four remote island villages on Lake Kivu to bring a comprehensive program into their local communities.

Through our on going monthly group classes we are training pregnant mothers in areas such as:

  • Prenatal nutrition

  • The importance of regular clinical check ups

  • Recognizing warning signs and ways to respond

  • What to expect during labor

  • Postpartum and infant care
