We have established the Women Health Resource Center program. Its foremost goal is to educate women from family planning to the early pregnancy through delivery and the early post-partum period. Access to information remains crucial for a healthy pregnancy and healthy newborns.
Women in this center receive theoretical, practical and counseling information on antenatal and postnatal care, post-natal depression, breastfeeding, new-born care, baby nutrition, immunization, and women and child’s care.
The center provides much needed education and counseling directly to women and their partners. Women learn from videos, educational handouts, small group sessions, and direct counseling with a midwife, nurse, or gynecologist all in a comfortable setting. The centre provides wellness activities too.
Our centers are open to young women, mothers, and couples. They aim to empower patients and practitioners towards quality improvement and shared-decision making, two concepts which have proven to reduce maternal and child mortality rates around the world.
