Is there any human experience that could be compared
to the kaleidoscope of emotions and thoughts rushing
through the soul of every mother just after the birth
of her child? What measures would parents be willing to
undertake if their child was seriously ill? How could they
find consolation if their child died from preventable or easily
treatable causes, such as pneumonia or diarrhea? Although
I write this from the position of a mother from a
developed country, it does not mean that mothers from
low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) feel any differently
when facing such a threat.
