Safe Mothers, Safe Babies is working with the women from a development association to found a “mama kit” business (mama kits are also known as clean birthing kits, containing the necessary supplies required by a hospital for a clean, vaginal delivery). Last year, SAFE Intern from the University of Texas Monika Tomczuk developed the idea for a mama kit business, and this summer, new summer interns and practicum students from the University of Texas and Jefferson Medical School brought the idea to fruition! Below, the women are receiving training about how to handle health products while assembling the kits without contaminating the supplies. We are SOO excited to see this project finally getting off the ground–special thanks to our wonderful summer interns (last year’s and this year’s)!
