It was my turn to rotate in Labour room this week, I moved up and down attending to patients of different ages, colors, races and shapes, they all had one thing in common as they were brought into the room, PAIN. They were either weeping or screaming, and couple of minutes or hours later, pastering around, rolling on the bed or squatting to push out the baby.
I was also moved to the birthing room where the real deal (babies delivery) takes place. The first few hours was somewhat terrifying and so emotional for me just like it was while rotating as a student.
As I stood there assisting, I wondered and kept asking myself, “how will this big head come through this small hole?” Though I knew the answer, it still didn’t stop me from asking the question over and over again till the delivery was done on each patient.
Following my emotional meltdown is the part that brings the greatest joy to my heart and smile on my face, the sight of the baby and then the cry. The mother can finally breath fine again!
The pain, the push, the cry, the scream, all these my mama had to go through several times again. She had the option of abortion at her discretion but she chose to have all of us (7 in total). She endured it all and still stood by us as we grew.
Firsthand, I see what you had to go through Mama. You put up with so much and still loves us the same. Words cannot describe fully how special you are to me, I know daddy will become jealous but you are my first love too. I want to use this opportunity to say THANK YOU MAMA KE, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!
Proverbs 31vs10 says, “Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.”
I am celebrating my two mothers
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO MY MIMSY, SISTY AND TO ALL THE WONDERFUL MOTHERS OUT THERE!
To appreciate your mama:
*Give her a “thank you kiss” for keeping your pregnancy whether it was planned or not.
*If you cannot get to her like me, message her, tell her how much you love her and how grateful you are.
