Meet a Hamlin Midwife: Konjit 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.

β€œI 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
