Ustine underwent a c-section.

Mbabazi received a successful elective caesarean section treatment due to two previous scars and she is feeling much better now and the baby who was delivered with 3.2kgs. She has a good appetite as she breastfeeds wells. The mother and the baby will have improved quality of life from now.

Mbabazi says, “As a family, we do extend our gratitude to your donors for having been there for me in this struggle of producing since I never had money for the surgery. Thanks so much, SAFE for saving my life. I will continue with my business after recovery.”

Ustine is a mother with two previous scars from emergency c-sections. She came in at her last antenatal visit and was advised by the gynecologist to deliver under elective caesarean section in order to prevent the occurrence of complications like uterine rupture and ensure a safe delivery.

Ustine is a mother of three children who operates a small retail shop to make ends meet. Her husband is a pentecostal assistant pastor whose income is also limited. Ustine’s siblings are not in any formal employment and not able to support their sister’s surgery as well. She has had her previous births through cesarian sections. She hopes to deliver a healthy child. However, she is not able to afford the cost of care and appeals for financial assistance.

Ustine says, “I had a difficult time when I delivered my second-born, I pray that I have a successful surgery and live happier as I continue to operate a small scale business of a shop.”
