|Why We Educate Women On Pregnancy, Babies – Toyin Saraki by petecoolboy: 2:57pm On Jan 25, 2017|
The founder, Wellbeing Foundation Africa, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, has visited the 9th Brigade Medical Centre in Lagos, Nigeria, one of many primary healthcare facilities around the nation where the Foundation’s MamaCare Midwives, deliver weekly classes to pregnant and postnatal mothers, to mark the Armed Forces Remembrance Day 2017.
Mrs Saraki, who was welcomed to the 9th Brigade Centre by its Supervising Matron, Captain Onyeke, Wellbeing Foundation Africa’s Mamacare Advocate Midwife, Eunice Akhigbe, and Garrison Commander Abubakar, paid tribute to Armed Forces families.
She said at the occasion, “We at the Wellbeing Foundation Africa are happy to be able to help the wives and families of uniformed men through their monthly journey from pregnancy to birth and beyond, and we continue to give them a continuum of care and counsel. Through our MamaCare Antenatal Education Classes, which were initiated at this centre since January 2016, we seek to empower these women by providing the highest standard of education to them about their bodies, and their babies. These classes, which are delivered in primary, secondary and tertiary medical facilities across the nation, have been able to deploy skilled midwives at no cost to military families in Lagos and Kwara States, to provide education, support, and confidence about health, from birth to age. At present, our MamaCare Midwives reach over 350 military spouses and 1500 citizens each and every week, but we are determined to scale this program across Nigeria for the benefit of civilians and service-members alike. “Much like the Armed Forces protect and nurture us, it is my hope that the work of the Wellbeing Foundation Africa reassures them, in turn, that their families are safe and secure. To dedicate ourselves to the health needs of these women and children is a small token of our gratitude, but one that we are grateful to give.” The Matron, Captain Onyeke, thanked the WBFA Mamacare Midwifery-led Antenatal and Postnatal Education Program for providing such unique education experience for pregnant and postnatal mothers, a service she attested was the first of its kind in the history of the centre.
