Laxmi Tamang is a Changemaker
Since July 2007, APS Kendra, a free birthing clinic in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, has been offering 24/7 reproductive health education and family planning services to underserved women in urban communities. Thousands of expecting mothers have received affordable health services, round-the-clock care, and dedicated attention from expert nurses.

Nurses, midwives, and even nursing students are on hand to support women throughout their entire pregnancy, offering services such as gynecological exams, prenatal treatment, ultrasounds and child immunizations. Mothers get access to a range of basic medical resources designed to ensure comfortable and safe deliveries for all women—regardless of economic status.
The APS Kendra birthing center is giving women the confidence to take control of their motherhood, and the freedom to raise healthy families in an area where many women can't afford medical treatment, and often give birth at home without the help of a skilled attendant. APS Kendra’s committed staff is available to guide and ease the birthing process, whether in APS Kendra's designated 10-bed birthing center or in a mother's home surrounded by her loved ones.
