Elizabeth visited Nyakibale hospital at 35 weeks pregnant. She has had a poor obstetric past with three miscarriages and an intrauterine death due to cord compression. Currently, the pregnancy indicated a breech presentation, which puts the mother and the child at risk.
Upon reviewing her ultrasound, the doctor has advised her to have a caesarian section to ensure the safe delivery of the child and the mother’s safety. Out of six pregnancies, Elizabeth has only one child but optimistic of the current pregnancy. She is a high school teacher while the husband is a shopkeeper. They have been on a loan that has limited their financial ability. She is not able to meet the cost of surgery in our facility. Elizabeth appeals for financial assistance.
Elizabeth says “I pray that at least, I will have a live baby so that I can also gain courage because I have lost enough. Hoping to a better delivery and a happy family after surgery.”
