Blanca delivered her baby in a hospital.

The delivery was a success!

“Blanca delivered her little baby safely in the hospital by cesarean section and she is now back at home recuperating,” says her doctor. “Both mom and babe are doing great. In the picture, you can see mom proudly bringing the new baby into clinic for his first weight check!”

“Blanca thanks all the Watsi donors for helping her baby be born safely,” her doctor continues. “She’s looking forward to spending time with him over the next few months, watching him grow and develop.”

Blanca is 27-year-old mother from Guatemala who came to our medical partners at Wuqu’ Kawoq for help and guidance during her second pregnancy. Blanca has had a heart condition since birth, and with this pregnancy she is now experiencing troubling swings in her blood pressure, shortness of breath, and frequent headaches.

Blanca has been to several other doctors in her area, but they were all too cautious to help her out given her heart condition. Her doctors at Wuqu’ Kawoq agree that her underlying heart disease means “she needs consultation with a heart specialist and close monitoring of her medications so that she can deliver this baby safely!”

“I want everything to turn out ok, so that I can get back home and spend time with my new baby,” said Blanca. Let’s raise the $310 needed to help Blanca get the care she and her baby need!
