The 2016 year ended with over 218 attended to by the New Mother Project’s trained promoters.
An additional 72 people have also attended the home visits or workshops, such as the pregnant woman’s partner, sister, or mother. As this report is written 78 women have had their babies.
In November the Ministry of Health invited the promoters to become official brigadistas for the Ministry. We are now able to work with the pregnant women who live in the Casa Materna or Mother’s house. This is a place where pregnant women who need frequent and consistent medical attention or live far away can stay while pregnant.
