Mothers of new born babies delivered at the Ridge Hospital had a rare opportunity to have their first few hours shot on camera, Monday, May 11, 2015 at the Ridge Hospital in Accra.
The intimate moment between the ‘fresh’ mothers and their babies was put together by telecoms company, Tigo, as part of this year’s celebrations for Mother’s Day.
The company presented ‘His and Her’s Hampers’ to the new mothers that delivered Sunday dawn at the hospital.
Tigo also documented the precious moments between mother and baby by taking photos of their first few ours together.
Usually the photos are taken days after both the mother and baby are discharged from the hospital.
From the moment they are born with their vernix coated skin, blinking eyes, and pay-attention-to-me cries, babies do mesmerize us and for the CSR team at Tigo sharing in the first few hours of mother and baby bonding was priceless.
Recounting their experiences, some first time mothers described the feeling of life taking form inside them, the physical and emotional changes, and the anticipation of bringing forth a new life to giving birth as wonderful.
Several of the women had already been given their babies the traditional Sunday names- Akosua for females and Akwasi for males – based on their ethnic tribe and gender but their real names will be revealed at various traditional ceremonies in a few weeks.
The mid wife in-charge of the Maternity Unit, Philis Ashun, was grateful for the gifts for the babies, their mothers and the health workers.
