In Baseco there are so many young mothers the Team find themselves constantly Mothering these young mums
Often they are alone and scared, they have left their home in the Province or parents and have no support and find themselves with a baby in a strange world! Just like this sweet mum Christine helped this year.
She was not a Birthing Better Baby mum but she was young alone and inexperienced with a new baby. The baby was struggling to feed and she just needed some support.
She just needed some mothering. It does not take much to love and listen. The women on the ground in Baseco are constantly being a mother to the motherless.
Our quote really fits into this situation…..
“Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children. From now on each wounded, abandoned, frightened child is yours. You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed and weep with them. You long to comfort all who are desolate.” — Charlotte Gray
Providing an ear and a spiritual shoulder to lean on goes a long way in Baseco
This is what we do on a day to day basis.
Freely given to whoever comes.
