Amutuhaire underwent a C-Section to safely deliver her baby.

Amutuhaire delivered a healthy baby boy by C-Section weighing about five and a half pounds! She and her new baby boy were well taken care of and returned home in good health.

Amutuhaire shared, “I am so glad to see that I have reached discharge time and am going home with a live baby. I will really remember you because if it hadn’t been for you, people, I wouldn’t have made it on my own.”

Amutuhaire is a 32-year-old farmer with a small piece of land from Western Uganda. Amutuhaire was educated by a local preacher up until high school, but she had to pause after the preacher was transferred away. Before getting married, she took up temporary work as a cleaner. Amutuhaire’s husband is a taxi conductor, but isn’t able to earn a lot. They live in a rental house.

Unfortunately, Amutuhaire lost her first child last year a few hours after delivery, leaving her devastated by the loss. She is again an expecting mother. Amutuhaire received a full antenatal package in our medical partner’s care center, Nyakibale Hospital. Her doctor recommended an C-Section due to her earlier risks and the shortness of the time interval between pregnancies. The procedure will reduce the chances of uterine rupture which could happen if normal delivery is attempted. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $252 to help fund this procedure.

Amutuhaire shares her story, “I have hopes that I will go home with a child this time because my first experience was quite tragic. I never even got a chance to carry my child because he was put on oxygen as soon as he was born then minutes later, he was dead.”
