– Description: The GAF fundraiser for Action for Mothers and Children (AMC) raised funds to open a Women’s Health Information Center, which offers advice about pregnancy and the healthy upbringing of children in the country with the highest infant mortality rate in Europe. Women at the Center receive counseling information on prenatal and postnatal care, postnatal depression, breastfeeding, neonatal care, baby feeding, immunization, and child care. They learn from videos, educational lectures, small group sessions, and face-to-face conversations with midwives, nurses, or gynecologists. The Center helps women to learn about normal changes that occur during pregnancy, warning signs, breastfeeding, newborn care and nutrition, and physical activity during pregnancy.
