We have qualified doctors and midwives on hand 24 hours daily to attend to women in labour. We provide antenatal and post-partum care in our women’s clinics and have a full-time obstetrician on call 24 hours daily. Hospital care is the safest way to deliver a baby and can prevent complications that can occur with care provided at home or in a health center with limited resources.

Pastoral care
