Moreen safely delivered her baby.

Moreen safely delivered a healthy baby boy! She was able to deliver naturally and did not need a C-section. She has named her new child Akatwijuka. She is now back home and is learning how to take care of her baby from her own mother.

“We are so grateful for this help,” says Moreen’s mother. “Our family is very poor and having a hospital delivery was beyond our means.”

Moreen is a 14-year-old expectant mother from rural Uganda. Moreen is married to Justus, and they are expecting their first child. Moreen and her husband are small farmers who grow cassava and beans. Her husband also picks tea. In her free time, Moreen likes to jump rope with children in the community and listen to music over the radio.

Because she is young, Moreen’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 January 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, Moreen and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.

Moreen has subsidized her payment by $8. 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.

Moreen hopes to nurse her baby and send the baby to school.

Moreen’s mother-in-law says, “I thank the people that are supporting and donating.”
