I am Sr. Sandhya and I was trained in Fr. Muller Charitable Institution, Mangalore India as a GNM. I am working as a midwife. I most enjoy receiving a newborn baby and welcome it into the world as a gift of God. It gives me immense pleasure and happiness to support a mother to give birth.
As a nurse I feel I am “chosen” to serve the needy. The very thought that I have been “chosen” for this delights me. At times I may work under stress but the wellbeing of every patient is my joy. I am happy to be called to be a nurse and a midwife. It’s a great feeling. At the moment I work in a hospital which is situated in a growing and developing town surrounded by villages. It challenges me to unlearn and relearn whatever I have been taught and learn how to work with remote areas. This is not always easy but I love my profession and I choose to be of service with whatever is available.
As the International Council of Nurses has set the theme for this year “Nursing the World to Health” I wish all nurses a Happy Nurses Day.
