Niwasiima presented to the hospital with an ultrasound scan indicating a pregnancy at 39 weeks of gestation with a history of one previous c-section delivery. Having been examined by the doctor, she was recommended to deliver by emergency caesarean section due to one previous scar and scar tenderness for a better delivery outcome.
Niwasiima still has both parents who are small scale farmers. She is the oldest in a family of five siblings and the rest are still studying. She never went to school at all and along she has been working as a domestic housemaid in Bushenyi town where she was got into a relationship with a fellow workmate, a gateman at her workplace. After she informed him about the pregnancy, he remained neutral about it, provided no support and no longer communicates with her. She was fired from work after being known to be pregnant and is now reaching term, but has no support at all. She can’t afford the costs of her surgery.
Niwasiima is a 20-year-old single mother to one child delivered by caesarean section and is expected to also deliver her current pregnancy by caesarean section due to one previous scar and scar tenderness. We expect to restore her lost hope by enabling her to successfully deliver her baby.
Niwasiima says “I really hope that with your support, I will be able to have a healthy baby.”
