We have a small maternity unit with 2 delivery rooms. Last year we helped deliver over 350 babies!
As 59% of women in rural Gambia give birth without a skilled birth attendant (UNICEF 2016), trained midwives are extremely important. Without the health centre’s maternity service they run the risk of complications resulting in death for both mother and child. Sibanor midwives are heroes – their expertise and care is literally lifesaving!
