Mom and Baby Program

Every year the administration team at the health clinic in Yamasà lists the number of new Mom’s in Yamasa and surrounding Batey’s and Barrio’s. Mom’s are provided with medical consultations with family doctors and gynecologists. Each mom is taught basic health practices and those specific to pregnancy and raising children.

In the past, young Moms had little knowledge regarding basic health and nutrition and were left to fend for themselves. Basic nutrition and health education has helped moms understand what is important during pregnancy and the value of basic nutrition in order to ensure a healthy child.
