Jecinter safely delivered her baby.

“Because of the love I have for my baby, I wouldn’t wish for my baby anything other than a delivery in a health facility,” Jecinter shares.

A skilled, safe delivery is exactly what Jecinter underwent the day that her son, Victor, was born.

According to our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance (LCA), “Jecinter is happy with the manner in which she was handled by the nurses at Lwala hospital. It took her one hour to safely deliver her son.”

Now that her son is healthy and developing, Jecenter is sure to “take Victor to all of his post-natal clinics for immunizations and check-ups.”

“She is looking forward to buying clothes and toys for Victor as he gets older,” LCA adds. “Jecinter has spent ample time in the garden since the delivery and tends to the baby. She receives a lot of visits from the children in her village who enjoy assisting in taking care of the baby.”

“She feels the fetus move, and kick her belly after walking for a while,” says our medical partner, Lwala Community Alliance (LCA).

27-year-old Jecinter is a pregnant mother of four boys from Kenya. She and her husband work hard as farmers, growing maize, beans, and groundnuts. Currently, Jecinter is struggling with particularly difficult symptoms of pregnancy, including heartburn, indigestion and constipation. She hopes to have her fifth baby in a safe, clean facility with proper care, but cannot afford the cost.

For $290, LCA can provide Jecinter with prenatal, delivery, and postnatal care for both Jecinter and her newborn. “This will allow Jecinter to continue with her business without feeling any delivery discomfort,” says LCA.

Jecinter has big aspirations for the future, and wants the best for her children and newborn. “After a successful delivery, I will continue with my farming and ensure that my children are provided with their basic needs and school fees.” she says.

Let’s help Jecinter receive this important care, and deliver her new baby safely.
