Our Therapist, Lisa, speaks about her voluntary work for the MamaBabyBliss Charitable Foundation at the QMC hospital, spending much needed time in the Mother and Baby Unit…
“Feeling uplifted and emotional after meeting and treating three new mums at the QMC! These ladies have the added anxieties of sometimes being away from their toddlers and worrying about their husbands. I felt like their saviour today with 40 minute treatments just for them. I felt their pain and part of me remembered how I felt when I arrived home and felt so anxious about anything happening to my precious baby. I remember it well!
Giving my time to these wonderful, appreciative ladies makes me feel amazing that I can make a small difference to how they feel. I never want to leave this Ward as I feel they need more, but I know I have made a difference. Telling them they are wonderful mummies and wives will only make them stronger and they will get through it. We need more of these Units as there are only 2 between Bristol and Nottingham. These ladies come from all over and so can be apart from their family. A truly amazing opportunity to give them love and reassurance and providing them with support through one of the most challenging times in their lives, bringing a child in to the world.”
