Work in the community

It was lovely to meet up with friends from last year, connive above who is a wonderful midwife who will be a great loss when she retires in two years . Ruth below who worked in female with me last year and now in community and managing epilepsy patient.
I love the community here as it's much like my own job ,very varied. I helped initially with baby clinic chatting with mothers about children's percentiles and all babies today were healthy babies slightly above average weight
Connor led a team on contraceptive advice. A group of ladies did some role play explaining it wasn't fair to have lots of children when they couldn't feed them and they ate the neighbours fruit and Connie explained contraceptive methods available. Then a group of ladies danced for fun.
We also went through the rough to visit some epileptic patients to check on medicine storage and adherence as well as general well being
This lady burnt her arm in a fire when she had a seizure and wanted a photo to warn other people of the risk.
We then visited some model homes that show what they recommend for hygiene and cooking.
