“If only I could have my baby safely delivered in a health facility and also safe from any complications, I would really appreciate it,” says Monica.

Meet Monica, a jovial 17-year-old woman from Kenya who’s pregnant with her first child. Our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance (LCA), report that Monica “complains of headaches and lower abdominal pains.
