From pregnancy to postpartum
One in five refugee women of childbearing age (15-45) is likely to be pregnant. 2 Pregnant women and newborns are disproportionately harmed by disasters, with more miscarriages, premature births, low birth weight infants, undesired pregnancies and birth complications than an average population.
Lack of adequately nutritious food, a scarcity of drinking water, fragmented or no health care, unfamiliar surroundings, and the often unending psychological stress put pregnant women and infants at great risk.
· Prenatal and postnatal exams by licensed midwives
· Birth preparation and assistance at births whenever possible
· Postpartum care of mother and infant
· Supplemental food and water during pregnancy and lactation in order to help cover nutritional needs and prevent dehydration.
