Delivering a baby is a humbling experience - Zano Prinsloo

Doctors Without Borders Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is currently celebrating the women who do amazing work within the organisation.

A midwife with Doctors Without Borders Zani Prinsloo is just one of three extraordinary midwives being honoured.

She has worked in more than ten countries including South Sudan, Sierra Leone, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq, where she delivered more than 1500 babies in some of the worst conditions imaginable.

Speaking to John Maytham, Prinsloo says her work now involves a lot of training that is why the last baby she delivered was in April.

I move from country to country, I was in Kenya and we need to have a licence to practise.

She adds that delivering a baby in her opinion is a humbling experience and also a privilege.

It is dangerous and I know the risk involved in every birth but this is where faith led me to and I don't mind to go wherever help is needed.
