The Nigerian newspaper The Nation features Bixby work on prevention of postpartum hemorrhage.
“For some period of time, Hauwa Haruna suffered excessive bleeding each time she gave birth. Consequently, she had night-mares each time she conceived. But her story changed for good last year, when a drug, misoprostol was introduced to women in her community. So, when it was time to deliver her last child, Hauwa did not bleed because misoprostol had been administered on her by a team of researchers at the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Zaria.”
