My name is Nadia Benmbarek, I am a nurse and I have previously worked
at an emergency cardiology department in Denmark. I have lived with my
family in Tamale for two years, where I have worked as a volunteer at various hospitals and clinics. Through the volunteer work, I have learned how little information is available to the population about basic health promotion and disease prevention measures. Especially as pregnant you go through big changes and it requires knowledge to create a good life for yourself and the child.
I believe that group-based education is a good way of providing information since it has the potential to create the safe and open environment that is so important for the pregnant women.
I’m sure MamaWise can make a big difference for pregnant women, so I didn’t hesitate when I got the possibility to become a part of MamaWise.
