TFCH improves Maternal health in Nigeria with Solar Delivery Lights from Maternova, Inc.

Knowing the electricity challenges in our rural communities, women in labor and the midwives finds it very difficult during delivery of the newborn.

Its been a trend that pregnant mothers are mandated to buy “Candles” as part of the listed items for delivery. The candle of course provides light in case labor comes at night. Where the mother is not able to buy the candle, the local lights known as “npanaka” used mainly by rural dwellers which produces dangerous fumes that causes carbon monoxide poisoning are regularly used. This local lights is known to be very dangerous to the health of the newborn , mother and health worker.

My fellow midwives and I have conducted many deliveries at night using all these which has many times engendered our health in the course of saving lives. we have complained and no one listened to us. You can imaging a health worker with history of asthma working with the candle and local lights? your guess is as good as mine.

As young minds we have searched and decided to create and look out for innovations that can remedy this situation, and has eventually found one.

We came across this noble innovation that replaces the suffering of health workers , mothers and newborn. Today we have a [SOLAR CLIP DELIVERY LIGHTS with Visors](http://maternova.net/headlamp-visor). In partnership with our very own “Maternova” an organization that is using technologies to improve women health across the world.

We have again made our rural midwives to be more confident in their work especially at night, We have also lifted away the burden and cost of candle lights from our mothers, we have again saved our people from the dangers of fumes from the local lights.

So far we have supported in getting this solar lights in more than two hundred (200) rural facilities and as well helping other government agencies get across to their health workers.
More details and success stories will be posted. My team and I are as happy as ever to save lives.

You can be part of our work. We are to make this change in Nigeria possible
Mind you corruption did not start today, but you and i can wipe it off.

Deficiencies in micronutrients like vitamin A, iron, iodine, and folate can negatively impact the health of both the mother and fetus.
