At HATCH, we’re passionate about supporting mamas at all stages – we’re in this together! We’ve partnered with THE ADVENTURE PROJECT to donate a mama kit to an expectant mother in need with every purchase of the HATCH-to-Hospital Box for the month of November. Treat yourself (or another mama-to-be) this season and give a woman in need access to a clean, safe birth experience in the process. Read on to learn more about our newest *adventure*…
It’s no wonder that Sub-Saharan Africa is the most dangerous place to give birth. Every day in Uganda, 16 women die in childbirth for reasons that are preventable – infections are one of the major contributing factors. The situation is so dire a Ugandan advocacy organization is currently suing the Ugandan Government, citing two horrific cases of mothers dying unnecessarily from lack of proper care (read about it here).
WHAT IS A MAMA KIT?
If you want to deliver your baby in a health clinic, you need to bring your own supplies. Beds don’t have sheets, so the Mama Kits include plastic sheeting (one for you to lay on, the other for the baby). They also include three pairs of gloves for the doctor and/or nurses, a bar of soap and even a razor blade to cut your umbilical cord.
HOW TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Our Hatch-to-Hospital box is the perfect gift to give yourself or your loved one to ensure all comforts and luxuries during a stay in the hospital. By getting OR gifting this, we’ll match your purchase with a Mama Kit – a box filled with simple drugstore products and a birth registration card – that will ensure Ugandan Mamas have a safe, and healthy birth experience.
