Mother's Delivery Kit

Mother’s Delivery Kit contains sterile products a woman needs during childbirth to avoid potentially fatal neonatal complications, such as tetanus due to a lack of clean blades, and sepsis caused by delivering children in unsanitary conditions. The kit is aimed at the 54 million women of childbearing age who live in rural communities across Nigeria and other African countries. Mother’s Delivery Kit is currently in use at teaching hospitals, traditional birth attendants’ homes, primary healthcare centers and private hospitals within Africa. In the last year, they have made their products available to over 9,000 women and economically empowered 79 women who act as their agents in rural communities. They also have a ‘doctor-to-you’ service, which allows women to speak to a doctor in their own local language or request for a doctor when in need.
