A thankful Maternal Monday today, with the gladdening news of the safe delivery of triplets to a Wellbeing Foundation Africa’s Mamacare 360 Antenatal Classes family in Ilorin, Kwara State!
When I founded the WBFA in 2004, it was to improve maternal, newborn and child survival outcomes in Kwara and Nigeria, and now in 2023 this delivery is a testimony to the carefully intersected and integrated program offerings we provide.
From home-based health records empowering information and data, to every child-bearing woman receiving free and monthly educational midwifery maternity ANC care, to delivery by highly skilled health professionals trained in emergency obstetric care, to early and exclusive induction of lactation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with the expression and administration of buccal colostrum and opportunities for kangaroo care bonding, I am immensely appreciative for our decades long productive partnership with the General Hospital Ilorin, and the tertiary University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, and for the dedicated and diligent duties of our Wellbeing Foundation Africa Midwives and State Project Team.
I hope and pray that father, mother and the babies continue to thrive, Amen.
