The journey walked with love, presence in care and support. All fears buried, love was in the air to empower the whole care. I reaped what I had sown from caring women with the standard basic care that is full of safety, compassion and social justice. Many of the families we serve have had the privilege and opportunity to experience the same. As a caregiver advocate, I stood for what is precise and I earned a place in my daughter’s life by giving her the care she needed and deserved”.
2012 November , Moffat Introduces a mothers’ day when all the mothers who have birthed at the centre gather quarterly to share with staff and give a scorecard of the care and what could have been done better. The first mother’s day was like no other. In his, speech Moffat spoke
“I look at the beautiful children held firmly, innocent, and smiling by their mothers and was so proud that these children have been born in a safe environment and that their birth was honoured. I started challenging these women that the journey to have life has begun but the biggest hurdle lied ahead. I stressed the need for these women to love their children unconditionally, the need to utter positive words to their children whenever they are holding them, breastfeeding them, feeding them, bathing them and when preparing them for sleep. If they feel tired and the baby is crying they should not curse them but be patient and love them even more. I emphasised that all great men were raised by loving, caring women who blessed their sons and daughter and gave them hope for the future. They were told they will be great men and women who will make the world a better place to live in.
