A POWERFUL TOOL
This is a simplified representation of a baby inside a woman’s pelvis. It shows what causes obstructed labor and obstetric fistula, as well as how an obstetric fistula can be fixed.
This is a page from a didactic book made in collaboration between Healing Hands of Joy and Protect Your Sister Project. It is currently being used by Healing Hands of Joy’s Safe Motherhood Ambassadors. It describes two mothers, one who gets proper medical care and has a healthy baby, the other mother’s baby dies and she is left with an obstetric fistula.
