BIRTHING CENTER

Most births are not seen by the father since women labor in a room all together and do not want a strange man in the room. This birthing center will allow privacy for the couple to share the wonder of the birth.

 

Each room contains a bathroom with a seated shower so women can have warm water running over the abdomen to decrease the discomfort during labor.

 

The room also contains a resuscitation area so that if the baby does not breathe immediately, steps can be taken to stimulate respiration. This should decrease the infant mortality rate after birth significantly.

NICU

The neonatal center for children born prematurely or with difficulties will be connected with it as will a surgical center for women who need a cesarean section because of delivery difficulties.

NURSING SCHOOL​​

Supporting the School of Nursing of Saint John’s University of Tanzania -
This nursing school is now the largest nursing school in Tanzania. It offers BSN and Diploma programs in Nursing as well as a Laboratory Tech school. Plans are also being made for a Master’s in Nursing Education (distance learning) to start in the near future. This should make a significant increase in the number of Nurses in Tanzania.

An Orphanage for children 0-2 whose mothers have died in Childbirth. 

 

Maternity Home Complex (ante-natal motel-like building) where a woman who is either ill with malaria and typhoid or something else can come and stay while being treated and also for women who we suspect may have a complicated delivery.  The rooms would be big enough for the whole family so they can stay until the mother is well and discharged or is ready to deliver and can be transferred to the birthing center. 

 

Rehabilitation Center for those with cerebral palsy and similar conditions so they can do the very best with their lives they are able to accomplish.
