Mbahabwe had a safe caesarean section. She delivered a healthy baby boy weighing 2.7kgs. Both the new baby and mom are doing well and are in good health.

Mbahabwe shared, “I really appreciate the support I received in making my surgery possible and may the Lord bless you abundantly. I will continue with teaching once schools are reopened but will currently be at home farming.”

Mbahabwe is a married mother of two, expecting her third child this month. Her husband operates a small retail shop and the family lives in a single-room rental house. Mbahabwe lost her teaching job when the COVID pandemic struck, and her husband’s income is only able to meet the family’s cost of living.

In 2016 and 2018, Mbahabwe had Caesarean deliveries due to poor progress and short interpregnancy interval. When she was examined during her last visit, her doctor advised her to undergo a cesarean delivery to prevent complications such as uterine rupture. She is unable to meet the cost of delivery at the local hospital.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Mbahabwe receive this procedure. They are requesting $252 to fund the procedure. On February 16th, surgeons at their care center will perform a C-section surgery that will allow her to deliver her baby safely.

Mbahabwe shared, “I will be glad for your support because I was worried about how I would pay my hospital bill. I hope to deliver a healthy baby and will continue teaching once schools reopen.”
