Save The Children #healthworkers

I have regularly complained about the fact that I can’t find a doctor that I like for V.  I have also regularly complained that I’ve had to wait an hour or two in the waiting room to see the doctor.  I have also questioned why (over here, at least), I have to pay to see the doctor, receive shots, collect medicines in advance.  Before we’ve been seen by anyone.  

It’s all terribly inconvenient.  

Until you hear about the Save the Children Campaign.  


It certainly put things into perspective for me.  I can still *see* a doctor.  My baby will *still* get treated.  I complain – but I shouldn’t – because we are lucky.

It is time for change, and you can help to make a difference in the lives of children all over the world.  You can support the campaign by signing the form here.

Mummy from the Heart and Hello, it’s Gemma are hosting a blog-hop to raise awareness of the need of healthworkers.  They’ve asked people to:

“Write your 100 words about a great health professional you have encountered in your life.”

This is my contribution:

His heart was beating faster than it should have been and we didn’t know how he’d manage through contractions.  The doctor said I could be induced, or he could take him out immediately – knowing a c-section would be better, but letting us talk about it.  We toyed with the idea of being induced and having baby naturally.  Luckily, the doctor said he thought taking the baby out now was a better plan.  I look at my boy every day and mentally thank the doctor – because the cord was around his neck.  Twice.  If it weren’t for him, would my boy have made it?  Thank you TG.

I’m not going to tag anyone, because everyone I know has already been tagged!  Please sign the form and show your support and/or write your own post and link-up.
