Livingstone General Hospital, Livingstone, Zambia

Clinical interest: Neonatal Medicine

“I was introduced to the labour ward on my first day, which was an unforgettable first impression. From the initial ethical ‘horror’ I felt and not wanting to return to the ward, to the in-depth personal and professional thinking it evoked, to finally overcoming it- it was a life changing experience in growing as a future doctor and person. In a large curtain-less room three women were giving birth in silence and shouted at when they made a noise. The first delivery I witnessed in Africa was stillborn twins. ”
