Natukunda underwent a C-section surgery.

Natukunda had a safe caesarean section for her breeched baby. Her surgery went well and she welcomed a healthy baby boy weighing 3.6kgs with an APGAR score of 10/10, meaning he was very healthy. Both baby and mom were safely discharged home and are in good health.

Nankunda shared: “I thank you so much for helping me by paying for my hospital bill to welcome my baby boy. May the Lord bless you in whatever you are doing, for me, I will continue looking for a job to work as a nurse after I have fully recovered.”

Natukunda is a 23-year-old woman and a trained nurse who is currently in search of employment. Her husband is a teacher, but unfortunately lost his job when Covid-19 hit the country. Their family lives in a single-roomed house and works casual jobs to make ends meet.

Natukunda is expecting her first child, and recently came for her last antenatal visit at Nyakibale Hospital. During a scan, the fetus was found to be in breech position, which makes normal delivery difficult. The doctor advised Natukunda to undergo a C-section surgery to ensure both her and her child are safe. Efforts to deliver normally might result in uterine tear, or severe complications. However, Natukunda is unable to meet the cost of care for this procedure, and appeals for financial support.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Natukunda undergo this C-section procedure on March 9th at our medical partner’s care center. This procedure will cost $252, and she and her family need help raising money.

Natukunda shared, “I mostly pray to God to have mercy on me and enable me to have a baby of my own. I desire to deliver safely and thereafter, look for a job.”
