Welcoming a baby into the world should be a joyous occasion, not one met with tragedy and heartbreak. That's why I can't wait to see the stat at 34 seconds in become a thing of the past. If places like this continue to pop up, I can only imagine many more smiles and a lot less grieving.
Faith Muigai: The maternal and neonatal rates, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa, are high. Jacaranda's mission is to provide a high level, quality, affordable service to the clients that we serve. What we're trying to do is provide a safe environment but also a memorable environment. You want mothers to think about their delivery 10 years down the line and actually have a smile on their face.
Client: The difference with this hospital, like that night, before the morning came, before I delivered, the nurses were with me. We talked all through. They can protect me. And it was clean, always clean.
Beatrice: When we came to Jacaranda Health facility, actually you really get amazed with the care that you get because nurses are like three or four that actually come to attend to you. And every time that you feel uncomfortable or pain, the attention that you receive, it's good.
Faith Muigai: Not only are we client centered, we're also developing the next tier of healthcare professionals. They are ready to provide you the service you deserve. They treat you with respect.
Phyllis Kagwi: Since I was a small girl, I had my eye to work and to serve other people. When I see these babies growing, I feel as if I've grown with the baby and their mother. And I feel, yes, this is part of me. This is part of my quality care to this particular mother and her baby.
Faith Muigai: My dream is for women here in Sub-Saharan Africa to have access to quality services and to be provided with dignified care.
