Midwife Kit

Working with experts from the International Confederation of Midwives (ICM), Direct Relief designed the Midwife Kit. It is endorsed by ICM as a standard for midwives trained to ICM’s competency standards. Each kit contains the 59 essential items a midwife needs to perform 50 facility-based safe births.
Midwife kits were delivered to Lumbadzi Health Center in Malawi in November, 2018. Midwives perform an average of 150 safe deliveries per month at the rural health outpost, located on the outskirts of Lilongwe, the country’s capital city. The kits  contain everything a midwife needs to deliver babies safely in almost any environment. Items include surgical instruments, I.V. sets, headlamps, and more. In collaboration with the Malawian Association of Midwives, Direct Relief will continue to provide the kits to health centers across Malawi. (Paulina Ospina/Direct Relief)
