Total Attendance
Irene,Lorna and Chris went to Nabikenge to continue with the birth preparedness, emergency preparedness and emergency care relating it to birth,infant and child care. Irene discussed with the community members some of the schedules needed for Antenatal care and advised the community to attend at least 4 Antenatal visits in order to be fully prepared for child birth, she also mentioned several ways of birth preparedness which covers her choices,identifying the source of support for her family while she is away,additional costs for hospital bills,birth supplies. Nabirye then asked for what happens if a mother doesn’t go for all the visits and if for all the visits attended no screening has been done? Then Naikoba said their husbands are not being supportive in the Antenatal visits and are not ready to go for screening with them which makes it hard for them to visit the health centers and so many complaints as Irene and the group continued to figure out solutions. The discussion continued and also discussed about preparedness in areas relating child or infant emergency reaching a conclusion on what the community has to do to prepare for emergencies.
