Motherhood is a heavenly sensation! Every girl wants to be a mother and enjoy the taste of it. Some women deliver baby normally and some through caesarean operation.

 

 

Sometimes mothers have to go through cesarean operation due to some problems related to the womb but most of the mothers don't want it. We met a mother on 22-Jul-2023, whose first child was delivered by caesarean section and this time she wants to have a normal delivery. She came with a strong desire. But in our country, we don't want to take such a risk easily, because of the previous suture may burst, resulting in major damage to the mother and child. Then with a bit of courage, our whole team took the risk, previous operation LUCS (lower uterine caesarian segment) and placental position posterioris facundus, there is no pain at the place of stitching, so the chances of uterine rupture and placental retention are less.

 

Finally, we had Completed VBAC (Vaginal birth after caesarian), both mother and baby were healthy.

Eid-ul-fitr and Eid-ul-adha are two most auspicious occasions for the Muslims.  During Eid everyone go for Eid vacation, instead of few health workers who remains on duty to provide services to the patients at the hospitals. During the Eid-ul-adha on 10 July 2022 when most of the people went for Eid vacation I was also on duty. I was living at the hospital dormitories far apart from my family and relatives. I was feeling lonely and deprived.

 

Then in the fine morning, a pregnant women arrived to me for delivery. I had conducted an active management of third stage of labour. After delivery I had ensured skin-to-skin contact between the mother and the newborn and helped the woman breastfeed the newborn. Both the mother and the newborn were doing well.

 

Right after the delivery, I instantly felt a sense of accomplishment and joy. All my regrets disappeared at that moment when I delivered the baby boy. The special day of Eid turn into more special to me. I realized the importance of being on duty even on special occasions to support pregnant women. I thanked the all-mighty ALLAH for giving me the opportunity to help the mother and the newborn. On the spot, I had committed that, I am midwife, I will always be with pregnant women no matter what is happening. My pleasure to remain with women.

Name of Midwife : Mahbubara Bellee Sikdar

Date:17 September 2022

 

In the night of 17-September-2022 I have conducted 6 normal deliveries where one of a pregnant woman among those six came with some complications.

 

 

The pregnant woman came had a history of incomplete abortion with 5-month pregnancy with retained placenta. Eventually after a lot of struggles I managed her normal delivery successfully. I was amazed and pleased watching the pregnant women and her family happy.  Among 6 pregnant women two delivered female babies, other 4 delivered male babies. All of the baby's weight were within 3500-4000 gm.

 

Conducting six deliveries was not easy. When I had started conducting the normal deliveries, I was not getting any chance to see the clock, I was getting anxious and tired. But my motivation to work as a midwife with full sincerity helped me regain energy. After the successful deliveries when I saw smiling and happy faces of the pregnant women and their families, all my exhaustion disappeared. I realized being a midwife is a wonderful experience.

 

I can help delivering babies normally without any interventions, pregnant women are able to move and breastfeed their babies well soon after delivery whereas after c-section delivery mothers needs time to get back to their normal condition and struggles to recover after anesthesia.

 

I would like to say that "The greatest joy is to become a mother; the second greatest is to be a midwife."
