Mobile Clinics and Mid-Wife Training


Mobile clinic training for Bengali midwivesMCH’s OB-Gyn doctor shows and tells about recent clinic and midwife-training:
Prior to the start of monsoon season, I was finally able to go on a mobile clinic and traditional birth attendant (midwife) training course. This was a great opportunity. We saw several hundred patients who had little access to healthcare. The most exciting part for me was helping with the traditional birth attendant classes.

Here is one of the groups that received training (They are practicing Bengali midwives):

Here's the other group (They are midwives from the Tong Chonga tribe):
