The experience of having a baby cannot be explained...
Midwives are first to see, first to touch and first to care, when it comes to newborn babies.
It is such a great privilege, a position of great responsibility. It is also a stature of honour and respect, that a woman would allow the midwife to handle both she and her newborn without limitation.
For this reason, midwives aim to always improve the experience of the mother during ante and post-natal clinics, and ultimately during delivery and recovery.
Midwife Diary is a gift from midwives to mums and dads.
By narrating their experiences and observations, midwives relay important messages of counsel to parents. Many of the stories carried here are about occurences in the delivery room. Many are about things that could have gone better, with some fore-knowledge. Yet many others are about the celebration of success after major challenges.
If you are a parent reading The Midwife Diary, it’s time to hear it in practical terms.
If you are a midwife who contributes to this course, God bless you!
