Equipment / Birth kits (Obstetric Kits)

Israel is blessed with many children. Many women call for the assistance of an ambulance at the onset of labor, but for some labor is so quick that there is no time to transport her to the hospital (this happens more often in the suburbs). Sometimes the birth occurs before the arrival of an ambulance. A birth kit enables the arriving EMT to assist with the delivery while providing all the necessary items, from a clean immediate enviroment to sterile equipment. Birth kits have been donated to E.M.T.s, midwives and nurses who might be called upon to assist a woman in childbirth outside the hospital setting.
