Meet a Hamlin Midwife: Konjit Tadesse

Tadesse, Hamlin Midwife Konjit graduated from the Hamlin College of Midwives in 2021.

She was deployed to the Olonso Hamlin-supported midwifery clinic south-west of Hamlin’s Yirgalem fistula hospital, where she has worked for the last three years.

Settling into her role as a Hamlin Midwife has been exciting and challenging. She is applying the theoretical and practical knowledge she gained at the College to real-life situations.

“I love being a midwife. It is a rewarding and fulfilling profession. I assist women during childbirth and have the privilege of witnessing the miracle of new life entering the world. Helping mothers is my joyous moment.” – Konjit

Konjit believes that increased resources, equipment and supplies would enhance the quality of care that she and her team provide. She says, “Having an adequate number of midwives would ensure that our mothers receive the attention and care they deserve.”

When asked what the future holds, Konjit has this to say: “I would like to further my education through my Masters degree of Clinical Midwifery to manage critical pregnancy complications.

I would love to make my health centre a model for strengthening the health structure by empowering women to give birth in health centres and caring for their babies. Being a trusted midwife for rural women and their families is highly gratifying.”
