Father Jillur and his wife Rowsanara in Munshipara, Bangladesh welcome baby Mosamat Mehjabin to the world.  Mosamat is 5 days old and the couple’s first baby. She was born at home, which is common in Bangladesh, with the help of a community health worker who lives in the same village. Jillur alerted the community health worker when Rowsanara was ready to give birth, and she attended the birth. Baby Mosamat is a healthy young baby girl.
