The messages helped me identify a fever in my baby, and I also noticed jaundice three days after I gave birth.

Nurse Mentorship

The presence and activities of our nurse mentors across public facilities saw:

50% improvement in newborn resuscitation skills

90% facilities consistently perform 90% of essential clinical steps during a delivery

90% partograph completions increased from 42% to 90%

After practicing newborn resuscitation with the mentor at our facility, a baby was born not breathing during the night and I was called to come to resuscitate her. My colleagues who had not been trained asked the mentor for a refresher training the next day after seeing how confidently I handled the case.

Since launching Jacaranda Maternity, we have recorded:

  • 60% fewer maternal and newborn complications than nearby facilities.

  • 91% of patients reported being highly satisfied with care.
