Miria safely delivered her baby.

Miria had preeclampsia, which got more severe the closer she got to her due date. Her doctors decided that a C-section was necessary for her and the baby’s health. She delivered a healthy baby girl! She has named her new daughter Shallon.

“I was worried about my baby, and the help from the donors to have a safe delivery was a great blessing. I am looking forward to taking my new daughter home and nursing her and taking good care of her,” says Miria.

Meet Miria, a 17-year-old young lady who is expecting her first child. Miria lives with her parents and younger sister. Her parents work as farm laborers. Miria enjoys cooking and sharing meals with her family and going to church.

Miria has been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, a serious complication associated with pregnancy. She needs to be closely monitored by doctors during her prenatal care. Doctors consider Miria to be a high-risk pregnancy case, so she may need to undergo a C-section to deliver her baby safely.

Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, has arranged for Miria to receive prenatal vitamins and regular checkups, starting on March 25. Miria will deliver her baby at our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital. Both she and her baby will receive postnatal care. For $241, we can help Miria to safely deliver her baby.

Miria shares that she is looking forward to nursing her baby.
