She offers personal maternity care - one woman to another, nuturing the new life within. Dr. Thompson is taking new patients for maternity care.
Since December 2010, Dr. Thompson has made nine trips to Haiti to bring medical education and clinical care to a remote mountainous area that previously had no access. She intends to spend more time pursuing this ministry in coming years. Her mission work includes assistance in the establishment of a clinic to serve a population of approximately 50,000 mountain residents. She will be teaching traditional midwives, and community health care workers, and providing medical services to Haitians of five communities 20 minutes to 2 ½ hours walking distance from the site.
