Three pieces of antepartum and intrapartum technological equipment were donated to the May Pen Hospital. The pieces, which are critical in assessing and monitoring fetal development, were donated by the Inner Wheel Club of Clarendon and will replace the old hand-held monitors and stethoscopes used by the medical staff to evaluate fetal development at the hospital.

The monitors will allow the medical practitioners at May Pen Hospital to monitor heart rate and, uterine contraction, as well as detect fetal hypoxia, fetal hypoxic, and the onset of cerebral palsy. Sandra Kenny, president of the Inner Wheel Club, said the three monitors were sourced with the help of club partner, Jamaica Hospital League. The club was met with praises from Nordia Nunez Howe, the hospital’s chief executive officer, who accepted the monitors from the donors. She admitted that the value of the monitors was outside the hospital’s budget and encouraged others to assist in the hospital’s re-engineering project as well.

Having up-to-date and fully functioning fetal monitoring equipment will help make better informed decisions in assisted deliveries and/or Cesarian sections, especially in high-risk pregnancies and can prevent neonatal complications.
