Can provide warm clothes and blankets for a newborn.
Newborn Clothes & Blankets
Especially in the first few days, comfort and warmth are crucial for the overall well-being of an infant. Your donation will help a baby feel at home from the moment it takes its first breath.
Can provide an expectant mother with a birth kit.
A birth kit includes the necessary supplies to safely deliver her newborn at home in an emergency if she is unable to reach a health post or hospital.
These essential tools include prenatal vitamins, a sterile sheet, surgical gloves, a sterile razor blade and tie to cut the umbilical cord, misoprostol (medication to stop postpartum hemorrhaging), soap, and sterile cloths to clean and dry the newborn, as well as a warm hat and blanket for the baby.
Can sponsor a Female Community Health Volunteer to receive specialized training in maternal and newborn health.
Female Community Health Volunteers
FCHVs deliver life-saving health information and clean birth kits to pregnant women in remote areas of Nepal. The training OHW provides prepares these FCHVs to promote safe motherhood practice among the pregnant women they serve (attending prenatal care and delivering with a SBA, preferably at a health facility). We also train them to recognize danger signs during pregnancy and childbirth, initiate emergency evacuations, and make sure women deliver with a clean birth kit when they are unable to reach a health post or hospital.
