Provide 4 Crucial Home Visits for 15 New Moms
The postpartum period is one of the most dangerous times for women. Stress, poor hygiene, and lack of education can quickly lead to serious health problems for mom and baby. This gift provides 15 moms with postpartum home visits with a Shanti Community Health Worker, who provides breastfeeding and infant care education and support. Additionally, our Community Health Workers recognize danger signs and refer moms and babies to nearby hospitals as needed.
