Sarobidy Maternity Clinic – Madagascar – June 2018

Categories: Where We Go

Two of our Trainers, Angie and Michelle, spent two weeks at Sarobidy Maternity Clinic in Madagascar teaching OB ultrasound to the local staff. Here is a story from their trip.

This couple wasn’t going to keep their baby because of relationship problems. The mother tried to abort but it wasn’t successful. She then enrolled into the maternity program because her and her partner reconciled. Before the ultrasound they both questioned if they would really see a human being because Abortion is very common here. Every patient we’ve scanned has had at least one abortion- fetuses are not seen as humans. Both Mom & Dad were shocked and happy to see on ultrasound how much of the baby has already developed!
