Sometimes Maternity Africa’s clinical staff must deal with emergency, life-threatening situations.
Nayo (30) is the mother of four children and lives with her husband. She attended school until grade seven, but her education stopped then because her parents could not afford to send her to school.
Nayo delivered her babies at another regional hospital. However, Nayo became pregnant again and decided to attend Maternity Africa’s clinic at Kivulini Maternity Centre.
A few days ago Nayo woke up early in the morning. Her stomach was in a lot of pain and she started to bleed. She told her husband. They asked their neighbours to help them to take her to the hospital because they have a taxi.
Nayo arrived at Kivulini Maternity Centre early in the morning. She was still bleeding. The clinical staff checked the vital signs, but sadly her baby was dead already. Quickly, they tool Nayo to the operating theatre to save her life. She had lost 2.5 units of blood.
The staff were very supportive and committed, and also managed to obtain some urgent blood donations. It took ten hours to manage the situation and to stabilise Nayo.
Nayo is now recovering well. She is very thankful for Maternity Africa’s support and to everyone who helped save her life with their excellent care.
