Odeta is a 31-year-old farmer and mother from Uganda who is expecting her fifth child. Odeta is a small scale farmer, growing food for her family such as beans, pumpkins, cabbage, millet, and maize.
Doctors consider Odeta’s pregnancy to be “high-risk” because her last child was delivered by C-section. This increases the likelihood that she will need to deliver this baby by C-section, as well.
Doctors recommend that Odeta receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On July 4, she will begin to receive pre-natal supplements and attend pre-natal checkups and health education classes. She will also be closely monitored during and after her delivery to ensure both she and baby are healthy.
Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Odeta’s ongoing care.
“I thank the donors for their support. It is a great blessing. If I could, I would give them some small gift,” Odeta says.
