The existing health post at Sikharbesi is in poor condition and is not equipped to deal with the expected 100+ pregnancies in the area. There are no trained birth attendants to help with prenatal care, deliveries or post natal care.
Once the existing health post has been upgraded to a full birthing center and midwives trained and employed, the center will provide basic preventive and emergency care. This will include pre-natal care with safe motherhood education and a trained midwife to deal with complications at birth. It will all be provided in a clean, warm, safe, well-equipped birthing environment, with appropriate post-natal care.
