It also serves as a teaching hospital for CASA’s professional midwifery students.
Maternal Health Services: A team of trained professional midwives provide prenatal consultations where not only the physical health of the mother and future baby are assessed, but also the emotional wellbeing of the mother and other family members that await the newborn. Topics such a nutrition, prenatal exercise and prenatal counseling are also addressed during appointments. The clinic is open 24/7 in case of emergencies.
