New baby girl and what it means to have maternity facilities in Mijale

CRESS new baby
Keeley Isaac is one of the most adorable baby girls

Keeley Isaac is one of the most adorable baby girls. She was delivered on the 2nd November 2019 at 03:13am EST in the Cress UK funded Clinic in Mijale. At birth, Keeley weighed 2.8kgs with an Apgar score of 9/10.

Her parents Mr. Sokiri Isaac and Ms. Kade Florence – Baptist church ministers and residence of Dongoture village (appx ½ km away) – visited the clinic for antenatal care services until safe delivery.

Sokiri Isaac was out for work in Moyo when their child was delivered, but had this to say about what it meant to them to be able to safely give birth to the Cress clinic.

  • “It has relieved us from the HUGE travel expenses to look for a safe delivery place (maternity services) since there is nothing in the area” – citing an example whereby, 18yrs old pregnant mother died in the hands of a traditional birth attendance in one of the far village due to heavy bleeding after delivery. So their family is safe – adding that “having this clinic is a VERY rare opportunity to be blessed with in a remote place like this!”
  • “We are humbled and very pleased with the expertise of the clinic staff who gave health education, mama kit, mosquito nets and monitored our baby using a rare device [Sonicaid] which can hardly be seen in the local hospitals.”

Early this year, Sokiri Isaac visited the Cress UK Facebook page and emailed the CEO & Founder of Cress UK Caroline Lamb to appreciate the existence of this clinic, we used his story on our website if you would like to read more about their experiences.

Thank you for reading and may God bless you!
