Kenya's rural women choose at home births causing maternal and infant mortality rates that the UN ranks among the highest in the world .


Only 38% of women in rural  Kenya give birth in medical facilities. Yet, 90% bring their newborns in for routine vaccinations. Cultural barriers, family tradition, shame, myth, misconceptions and transport costs drive mothers to give birth at home without medical assistance, leading to 7,000 maternal deaths and 35,000 infant deaths each year.

Our postnatal care bundles and bracelets are helping change this deadly trend.


We are a student-run organization that helps safe mothers and their newborns by providing hospitals with postnatal bags that they issue for free to mothers who give birth in their facilities. This reward incentivizes mothers to choose hospital births instead of medically unassisted homebirths.  In the critical weeks after birth, the bags essential products and health information pamphlet, which we developed, empower mothers to keep themselves and their newborns safe and healthy. 

Our Bracelets are Made in Prison. 

We make our bracelets at Kenya’s women’s maximum security prison. All proceeds from each one of our bracelets goes into funding our postnatal bag, which costs us $50 to produce.

Testimonials

I am 16-years-old. I dropped out of primary school in class 7, because of my pregnancy. I live without running water or permanent structure. My mother washes clothes to support us. I’m not sure how I would have coped without the clinic and the Do Right package. I will tell all, especially teenagers, that they must deliver at the clinic.

The Do Right mother's package complete with nappies, soap, and education pamphlet and much more, is a noble low cost and sustainable idea that can play a significant role in reducing maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality, which remain highest in our counties of Northern Kenya. The packages have made a tremendous impact at Lewa's clinic.

The maternity kits are very popular with the mothers and the broader community. They do something to encourage even women who do not come to the clinic for births, because of fear of being caught for illegal circumcision, to come. It seems that all the items in the package are helpful and used. There is special mention of the excellent quality of the blankets.
