Training Opportunity: Safe Motherhood Education

I wish I had had an opportunity to learn about safe motherhood as a young girl/lady. In preparing a girl to settle down in marriage mothers are expected to teach her to cook, clean, wash and manage a home. Then as your wedding day draws near you get a little gist about satisfying your man sexually…Bedroom matters that nobody even gives you detailed instruction about how it works. We usually stumble along the way finding out as days, weeks and months pass by. Well this is a story for another blog post.

This post is about how to equip young women single and married about safe motherhood. Trust me this is very important especially if you intend to have children. My personal story and journey into motherhood was a turbulent one. It almost cost my life and that of my baby. I simply didn’t know and my young husband didn’t know any better. We made a lot of unhealthy mistakes that even now I still regret.

Knowledge they say is power…here is an opportunity to get the necessary information and keys to a safe motherhood…it might save your life or someone close to you.

Sunday Musings: Being a Wife and Mother

So we finished worshipping God in church thanking Him for all his faithfulness for the past month being the first Sunday in April. It is always a thanksgiving day for us.

After the church service, my daughter had this idea that we should take her out to celebrate her birthday. Guess what? Her birthday is still some weeks to come in April but because celebrants for the month usually cut a cake and are prayed for she felt that her day starts today… Hehehe…

We all joked about it and laughed but she was serious. So we placated her promising to buy her snacks and drinks on the way home. All the while we were thinking of how much will still be spent in marking her 10th birthday…. So we played smart parents!!!

Guess where I am now? In the market trying to get stuffs for lunch. Now I wished I had followed my daughter’s wish to eat out. 

After this market stress… I am off to the kitchen. Oh… the joys and stress of “wifehood and motherhood”.

Happy Sunday.😀😀
