In order to increase the number of women who deliver at the district clinic and to involve the Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs)who are still conducting the majority of the deliveries, the Birthing Project will use the TBAs as "SisterFriends" to pregnant women with the intention of rewarding them for providing local, village centered guidance and support and referring the pregnant women to prenatal care and delivery. SisterFriends provide one on one support to pregnant and postpartum mothers.
