Amumpeire is married with a history of having lost one of her children on the day of birth due to birth asphyxia and anther one a few months after birth. She is recommended to deliver her current pregnancy by caesarean section due to poor obstetric history.
Amumpeire’s parents are small-scale farmers. She was born in a family of seven siblings, but are now remaining five with two boys who are not yet married but are working in Kampala. All the girls are married and they practice small-scale farming. She withdrew from school after having completed senior four; she could not continue due to lack of school fees. Ampumpeire practices small-scale farming while her husband is a mobile trader.
She had an obstetric scan indicating one intrauterine fetus in cephalic presentation with normal features. After having been reviewed by the doctor, Ampumpeire was recommended to deliver by elective caesarean section for a better delivery outcome.
We expect to restore her lost hope by enabling her to successfully undergo her delivery. Amumpeire says, “I expect I have a successful surgery, a living baby, and a happy family.”
