The You & Ghana Foundation developed the Safe Motherhood program. The Safe Motherhood program consists of several projects with local partners. These local partners try to improve the care of pregnant women, post-delivery, babies and children.
Currently, we're working with the West African Aids Foundation (WAAF) for our Safe Motherhood outreaches. During these outreaches, we provide health education in communities about pregnancy, safe birth, PMTCT and family planning.
Besides the outreaches, You & Ghana is introducing Pregnancy Classes where pregnant women will receive antenatal care in small groups of a maximum of 12 -15 people. During their visits, the women will receive information related to their term of pregnancy and will prepare for motherhood.
In each community, local health workers are trained to do outreaches on a regular basis so that all pregnant women and their partners are well informed during their pregnancy.
The You & Ghana Foundation has developed a teaching package for the Safe Motherhood and Centering Pregnancy project. To be able to implement this in more and more communities, we need your help!
