February’s Family Feature: Meet the Latest Healthy Child Born on the Thai-Burma Border
By Brittany John – Health, Hunger and Education Program Manager
Each month this year we will tell you a story about a mother who safely delivered her newborn child at Mae Tao Clinic on the Thai-Burma border.
In this region, infant and maternal mortality rates are far too high – 22 times higher than elsewhere. Together with Mae Tao Clinic, we are determined to improve access to prenatal care, safe labor and delivery, and postpartum care for new mothers and their babies. Here the reproductive health team safely deliver between 3-15 babies every day.
This month we’d like to introduce you to Thai Ha Oo and his mom!
