During my internship at Joy of Life Family Medicine, I worked on a project through ManaStats. Mana Statistics gathers thousands of records from midwives who enter data from their clients charts starting very early with the clients prenatal care. As I worked with Beka and Joy I gathered many charts from their clients and entered data online in the Mana Statistics project that could be generated to put out statistics about natural home births, and these statistics can be compared to hospital birth statistics, etc. Many of the charts I had entered were current clients, some who had already had babies and some who were still in the stages of pregnancy. I also entered previous clients data, all the way through labor and post partum care. This is such an important and impactful project because women need to be informed on the statistics of home births and realize how safe they actually are. Baka and Joy will finish entering their clients charts and submit them so that Joy of Life can be a part of generating statistics. I also wrote a blog for the Joy of Life Family Medicine Website!
