Kansiime was received at the hospital as a referral from a clinic in Rukungiri town with an abdominal scan revealing a pregnancy with a frontal brain cyst to be reviewed by a specialized doctor for further management. Having been reviewed by the gynaecologist, an emergency scan was re-done which indicated a single fetus at 35 weeks of gestation. She further gives a history of two previous c-sections and was recommended to deliver by caesarean section for a better delivery outcome and to save both the baby and mother’s life.
Kansiime says she has been receiving treatment in a nearby clinic but by the time she was referred to Watsi’s Medical Partner care center Nyakibale Hospital for further management, she had used all the money she had for her treatment.
Kansiime is a married mother to two children delivered by emergency caesarean section and is expected to deliver her current pregnancy by caesarean section due to two previous deliveries. We expect to restore her lost hope by enabling her to successfully undergo her surgery.
Kansiime says, “I pray to the Almighty to enable me have a successful surgery.”
