Mothers in Turmoil

Our mother’s put up with a lot! Usually they don’t complain about neonatal being hot, cramped, and having to sleep on the floor. But this day, everyone was a little on edge as it was so hot, and so cramped, and not much room on the floor left for sleeping! They asked me to please take a picture and show people how crowded neonatal is. And I must admit, trying to get to the babies was a bit overwhelming.

Having to squeeze between incubators and patients to get to the sick baby I was monitoring underlines the urgent need for the planned new ward.
