How can we safely increase the survival rate of newborn babies and their moms? Our guest created a way to do that in Africa.
Adepeju Jaiyeoba, Mother's Delivery Kits
Adepeju created Mother's Delivery Kits, which improve mother and child survival by almost 100% at childbirth by providing them with their ultra sterilized delivery kit.
In the 2013 Save the Children ‘State of the World’s Mothers Report’ on the best and worst places to be a mother, Nigeria is ranked near the bottom of the list... 169th out of 176 countries surveyed.
With a doctor patient ratio of 1:6,400, more than 70% of deliveries are carried out by Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs).
Adepeju saw nylon bags replace sterile gloves, toothpaste replace disinfectant and rusty blades, knives and even glass used to severe umbilical cord. This increases infection risk, asphyxia, sepsis and other related causes resulting in completely avoidable deaths.
A sterilized delivery kit at childbirth, complete with an immunization schedule, antenatal and immunization reminder forms and a system of setting up linkages with trained TBAs and skilled birth attendants is creating positive change.
In fact, they have a 100% safe delivery record.
They have sold 6,000 kits in six months, saving 6,000 women and babies in rural communities.

Today, Glenn Barker, Executive Director of The ManKind Project, Dr. Marvin Thompson, Educator and Founder of Empower ED LLC and Chloé Taylor Brown connect with Sheila Peltzer, President of KN2P (Kids Need 2 Parents) to discuss her mission of Shared Parenting and her work to change custody laws to maximize the time children spend with both parents.

Tonight we will be talking about staying in tune and true to you. We sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Sometimes all the time. As parents, our needs usually take a back burner to our children and partners. We do the best we can and feel pretty good. But what if we can feel great? If we all took care of ourselves as well as did our loved ones, think of how much happier we would all be...."Happy Wife, Happy Life" I don't know about you, but I sure am a better mom and wife when I am healthy, happy and rested. Lets chat about some ways to have some more "me time". Whether that be time to do your favorite hobby, take a bubble bath or take a yoga class......if our kids and spouses are worth it and deserve it...why don't we???????
