Sarah safely delivered her baby.

Sarah safely delivered a healthy baby boy! Fortunately, she was able to deliver naturally and did not need to have a C-section. This will make her future deliveries easier. She has decided to wait until his baptism to name him. Mother and son have now returned home to be with their family. Sarah will be getting a lot of help from her mother with her new son and will return in six week for his vaccinations.

“It is a blessing to have a new baby and we are especially grateful for the help in ensuring that Sarah had a hospital delivery,” says Joventor, her mother. “I will ask God to bless all the donors abundantly.”

Sarah is a 16-year-old student from Uganda. Sarah lives with her mother and younger siblings. She enjoys social studies, athletics, and playing games.

Sarah is pregnant with her first child. Because she is young, Sarah’s doctors consider her pregnancy to be high-risk. They recommend that she receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On April 30, she will begin to receive supplements and attend antenatal checkups and health education classes. She will deliver her baby in the hospital, and she will undergo a C-section if necessary. After birth, Sarah and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.

Sarah has contributed $7 to her treatment costs. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting an additional $241 to fund her care. The requested $241 pays for antenatal visits, lab tests, medication, and three nights of hospital stay.

Sarah’s mother says, “I thank the donors for supporting my daughter and helping her have a safe delivery. I pray to God to bless the donors in everything they do.”
