Maternal Health Services
Improving access to quality maternal health services is deeply embedded in our vision and mission at Bwindi Community Hospital.
Identify Risky mothers who are admitted in the waiting hostel and at least an average of 50 risky mothers benefit from the hostel monthly.
An average of 170 deliveries per month is achieved, and all these deliver under a skilled midw ife and an obstetrician. 40 % of those who deliver take up postpartum family planning.
We offer high quality prenatal services to an average of 250 mothers per month and every mother has a privilege of getting at least two Ultra Sound Scans done.
The mothers receive a complete package of Antenatal care services including HIV testing for Elimination of mother to child HIV transmission (EMTCT), Syphilis testing, iron and folic acid supplementation.
We have established strong linkages with the community working closely with the community structures including leaders and village health teams to improve birth preparedness and service uptake.
Our waiting mothers hostel, where mothers living far away from a health facility can come and stay towards term as they await labour to start. The innovation has significantly contributed to better maternal and newborn outcomes since the impassable forest and terrain presents unique transportation challenges limiting quick access to skilled care at the time of birth.
The USAID RHITES SW project has supported our services to improve service quality through initiating quality improvement projects on care for the preterm and strengthening partograph use for monitoring mothers in labour.
