Most Maasai births continue to take place in their traditional huts made of dung, mud. and sticks. The unhygienic huts are, of course, less than ideal since orphaned or sick calves and lambs are cared for in the huts. Typically a neighbor, or if they are fortunate, a Trained Birthing Attendant (TBA) will assist with the birth.
For $20, you can help provide for a safe birth. These Safe Birthing Kits are given free to pregnant women, and include a plastic drape over which the birth takes place, razor and clamps for cutting the cord, antibiotics for cord stem and eyes, wash basin, soap and washcloths, blankets, and gloves & gowns for TBAs.
