SOS : SEEKING THERAPIST IN ZIMBABWE
🇿🇼
We are looking for a social worker or clinical psychologist to VOLUNTEER their time and expertise on a case we are working on.

We have a 12 year old girl who is 8 months pregnant and refuses to speak on her pregnancy and refuses care.(1)
Sadly, the Police hit her on her palms (while pregnant) as a way of corceing her to divulge who raped her. It didn't work but she is further traumatized by that event.

Please inbox us or share the post to a potential therapist and we will make the necessary connections. (2)
UPDATE : #Zimbabwe 🇿🇼 THANK YOU. We have received quite a number of contacts from this post. Selfless proffesionals volunteering to assist. We assure you that we are doing our best to preserve her privacy and to get her the help she needs. Thank you again.(1) #maternalhealth

Today is the 46th anniversary of the #Helms Amendment. Enacted following the #RoevWade decision, Helms restricts US foreign aid for abortion. This policy has not only limited the reach & effectiveness of US global health assistance, but it continues to threaten SRHR worldwide.
Helms has long been incorrectly interpreted & implemented as an outright ban on abortion. Even in countries where abortion is legal, Helms has deterred providers from offering abortion-related counseling or referrals, providing safe miscarriage management & more.
This has only made existing health system challenges even worse, including by raising barriers to postabortion care, which is essential to reducing negative health outcomes resulting from unsafe abortion. #HelmsAmendment

1/thread on #MaternalMortality

@harvardmed Professor Dr. Neel Shah to @HarvardHealth:

American #women today are 50% MORE likely to die in childbirth than our mothers were & “the risk is consistently 3 to 4 times higher for black women than white women...”health.harvard.edu/blog/a-soaring…
2/x- The disturbing racial disparities in America’s #MaternalHealth outcomes mirror racial inequality among our nation’s infant mortality rates.

The @CDCgov found the infant mortality rate for black babies in our nation is TWICE that of white babies. ajc.com/news/national/…
3/x- Per @BrookingsInst:
“this is not just a poverty story. Babies born to well educated, middle-class black mothers are more likely to die before their first birthday than babies born to poor white mothers with less than a high school education”
