A cam­paign to pur­chase new foetal heart mon­i­tor­ing equip­ment for Wai­heke Island run by Wai­heke mid­wives and Vital Well­be­ing was given a boost recently when the Jassy Dean Trust donated $5000 to the cause.

The total cost of the equip­ment is approx­i­mately $10,000 and it will enable close mon­i­tor­ing of expec­tant moth­ers in the final weeks of their preg­nancy. Up until now, this equip­ment has not been avail­able on the island so trav­el­ling to Auck­land for reg­u­lar mon­i­tor­ing was neccesary.

Read more about the pur­chase of the foetal heart mon­i­tor in the online edi­tion of the Wai­heke Mar­ket­place from May 8th 2013.
