Midwife Project Borneo

Midwife Project

Rahmah is a qualified midwife based in Katimpun village in Central Kalimantan in Borneo. She serves all the local villages not only in her capacity as a midwife but also as a nurse and a paramedic. It is hard to believe that until now she has not had the most basic instrument of her trade: Sonic Aid. Sonic Aid is a miniature ultrasound used by all midwives to listen to a baby’s heartbeat during pregnancy in order to assess the baby’s health and growth and detect any imminent risks. In December 2017 MEDyARTE Foundation purchased a Sonic Aid for Rahmah.
