The Kelowna Right to Life Society is pleased to announce our Fetal Monitor Fundraising Campaign for 2018!
We are working in conjunction with the KGH Foundation to raise $7,000 for the purchase of a new wireless fetal monitor for the perinatal unit at the Kelowna General Hospital.
Fetal monitors are necessary to detect any issues with the baby during labour. Doctors can monitor contractions and the baby's heart rate throughout the delivery process. Such monitoring is necessary to ensure the doctor's awareness of any problems or complications before they become serious.
Studies show that there are multiple benefits to being monitored with a wireless monitor opposed to the traditional machines of the past. First, women with the ability to shift around without the restriction of cables laying over them report feeling less pain during delivery. Additionally, many studies suggest that when you walk around and stay as active as possible at the beginning of your active labor, your labor will be shorter and less risky. Therefore, being monitored with a wireless machine makes for a more successful birth.
Please contribute to our fetal monitor campaign drive with a tax-deductible donation of the amount of your choosing. Any amount will help us reach our goal!
