Helping Mothers Survive at the FIGO conference in Ethiopia

FIGO arranged its first master trainer course in Helping Mothers Survive in Addis Ababa in October 2013. 14 selected participants form 7 different countries participated in the training.

14 kits of MamaNatalie birthing simulators and Helping Mothers Survive educational materials were donated from Buy One Gift One pool to support this training.

Demonstrations and instructions were given by the facilitators.

Learning how to operate the various features of MamaNatalie is an important part of the training.

The participants, mostly gynecologists, adapted well to their new role as the midwife.

Master trainers were trained on how to evaluate and give feedback. The examination is an essential part of the training.
