Baby and the Red Hairy Leaves. Smile


This pic. reminds me of the time when I did my practical in hospital. I had to help out in Labour Ward. Still remember the stitching. The cutting; clamping and tying of the umbilical cords. Mucus had to be sucked out if there were any. How the nurses used oil and cotton buds to wipe the babies (if necessary) before the babies' first baths. The expressions of the tired and exhausted mothers......


Whenever I was free during off days; I liked to help to bathe the new born babies. The number of babies in the nursery room could be more than 30 at any one time. The babies smelled good after bathing. Smile


When there were no assignments or too lazy to do those assignments at night; I liked to go to the nursery room to help out with the bottle-feeding. Some mothers opted for bottle-feeding due to ill health or they were too weak. Some babies finished the 4oz. of milk in less than few minutes. These babies cried for more milk when the 4oz. milk was finished but we were not allowed to over-feed the babies. Whereas some babies took more than half an hour to drink less than 2oz. of milk.


Some nurses told me they enjoyed doing post-natal care in the rural areas. Whenever they went to care for the post- natal mothers and bathed the babies; they always came back with bags and bags of local fruits. Smile! Those rural folks were always very grateful for the nurses' help.


About the mothers' expressions when they got to know the gender of their babies; the nurses told me some mothers cried (esp. Chinese mothers) when they got baby girl for the 4th. somethimes 5th. time. To Chinese, sons are much preferred. To me it's NONSENSE!! Do we still have this type of traditionalist Chinese around. Hope NOT!!!
