One of Wiphan’s most beautiful memories is of a conversation she had with a single, teenage mother in a post-natal ward. “The woman was very young, and spent 3 days in the hospital giving birth, without a husband to support her.
She could not breast feed, and worried about the health of her child. I sat beside her and put my hand on her shoulder and offered to listen to her problems and after hearing her worries, I reminded her that she is not alone. She still has her mom who will support her when she back home. After 20 minutes, she was more relaxed and committed to raising her baby and doing her best.”
Wiphan helped discharge her, and today she says, “I hope that this teen mother will receive adequate support from her parents and that she will have a good experience becoming a good mom, paying proper attention for her own health as well as that of the growing baby.”
