Practitioner Wants Midwives On Gov’t Payroll

By David Pamas Seedee, LINA Margibi Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, March 21 (LINA) - A midwife at the Bogbeh Clinic in Dewein Disrict, Bomi County, Madam Famata Adams, has appealed to the Liberian Government to place midwives on its payroll as incentives for service to their communities.

She told the Liberian News Agency Friday that midwives play pivotal roles in the health sector by volunteering their services during the Ebola crisis for which they were not paid.

According to Adams, midwives took the initiative to deliver pregnant women when hospitals were closed and medical practitioners were turning them down for fear of contracting the Ebola virus.

“They (midwives) were on their feet day and night catering for the women and their babies and yet they are not on the government payroll to benefit from what they were trained to do,” she added.

Adams stressed that midwives should not continue to do volunteer work “when they have their children to send to school and families to support.”

Meanwhile, Adam is also appealing to the Ministry of Health to provide midwives with Personal Protective Equipment and hand sanitizers, among others, in order to facilitate their job.
