We do a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work to improve the health of mothers and newborns in Loreto.

Our work consists of three (3) prenatal visits and three (3) postnatal visits. In the first, we take care of promoting institutional birth, early prenatal controls, immediate and general newborn care; in addition to preparing the delivery at home in case the institutional is unfeasible. And in the last three visits (3), we weigh the newborn (and refer if necessary by underweight), we reinforce the general care and we explain the extra care that should be considered if the newborn have a low weight. Finally, we ensure the implementation of the messages we give to our pregnant women through the Community Health Workers.

WE TRAIN COMMUNITY WORKERS

We provide training and acknowledgement to midwives and Community Health Workers in knowing how to detect the emergency signs of pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum and the newborn. Also in the immediate and geeral care of the newborn in addition to the preparation of the delivery at home, in case the institutional way is unfeasible. All for the sake of improving the health of their communities.
