Natukunda is a mother of three with a history of having had three previous emergency c-sections in 2003, 2005, and 2009. Since 2009 she had been on family planning. She stopped family planning a few months ago and got pregnant.
This pregnancy has been very challenging as she has morning sickness and feels very weak. Even simple tasks at home like washing is a burden. This has made her have a poor quality of life. She was advised to deliver via caesarean section for the prevention of complications like a uterine rupture.

Natukunda says, “I will be extremely humbled having a successful surgery, a live baby and continue with my teaching and supporting my family.”
