Mbuya Nehanda Maternity Hospital provides health care services to the mothers which include prenatal care, antenatal care, intrapartum care and post-natal care. This donation of a sculpture shows the postnatal care which Mbuya Nehanda Maternity Hospital always educates mothers about. “This sculpture will be a great reminder to our patients whom we receive on a daily basis at Mbuya Nehanda Maternity Hospital, including their relatives”, said the Director of Operations for Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals, Mr E. Mundenda while officiating at the event. He further said that besides educating the patients about giving the much needed care to their children, the sculpture also gives hope to an expecting woman that, soon she will be holding her own child.
