SMI Team visits Catholic Hospital, Oke Ira, Lagos, Nigeria.Package Gifts comprising of pad, pampers, baby soap, towel, etc were distributed to 150 mothers.
SMI Team visited the Catholic Hospital Oke Ira on the hospital’s ante natal clinic day. The Matrons and Doctors on duty applauded the efforts of the SMI Lagos Coordinator, Ateboh Abiola and SMI Ekiti Coordinator, Mrs Regina Afolabi, as the SMI team provided valuable health information to pregnant mothers present at that occasion.
SMI Team encouraged the women to comply with Obstetrician’s advice on issues regarding Caesarian Section (C/S). This advice is important because, it has been recorded that several women abscond to Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) when the Obstetricians suggest C/S. Failure to comply with obstetrician’s advice is among the factors contributing to maternal deaths in Africa. This is particularly so, when diagnosis indicates that the baby is mal positioned or that the pregnancy is susceptible to complication.
The SMI Team also enlightened the women on the
importance of eating healthy diets during pregnancy, including daily intakes of
fruits, vegetables and water. In addition, the women were enlightened on the
importance of rest and early recognition of labour signs. The team also
demonstrated pre-natal exercises.
Mrs Ateboh says that the SMI Lagos future programs include:
visit to Dorcas Initiative, an NGO that take care of the widows and widowers.
Congratulations to the SMI Teams in Lagos and we look forward to celebrating more successful projects in 2012.
