Maternity Guidelines

Traditional medical textbooks do not translate effectively to patient care in a third world setting. Sara and Sharon created a guideline for maternal care appropriate for Kijabe Hospital for nurse midwifes and interns. Chapters include such topics as Post Partum Haemorrhage, Eclampsia, Breast Feeding (nurses tell patients to drink Chai to help their milk come in) Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, Twin Delivery, Ectopic Pregancy, Drugs in OB/GYN, VBAC, On Call Responsibilities, Approved Acronyms, and Shoulder Dystocia.

Well done, Sara. Guidelines can very much lead to improved health for your Kenyan friends. Dad
