Description SAED:SOCIAL:HEALTH:DRUM AUGUST 1952 Ð Birth Of A Baby Ð Nurse Mntuyedwa proudly looks after the baby, Jacob, please that he is a fine, strong boy. The birth of a baby is the greatest event in the world. Although it means an upheaval in the home, hard work and worry for the midwife and sometimes pain for the mother, when it is all over it brings new life and rejoicing. The midwifeÕs job is often a hard one, for most of her patients are poor African women with little equipment. Often the midwife must search for clean towels and, when the bay is born, be content to wrap it in some old garment. (Photograph by Jurgen Schaderberg © BAHA) NEG 077 FRAME 4
