It has been a tough year for every expecting mother or woman in Uganda. The lockdown in Uganda has hindered transportation means even for the pregnant women who need antenatal care and to give birth in a safe environment.
In the past three months our Magical Maternity managed to register 349 patients who came for consultation, antenatal, obstetric scans, deliveries, other procedures among others. We had 44 deliveries including 18 Normal deliveries, 19 Emergency c-sections and 7 Elective.
We are so delighted to have played a big role in helping to ensure that these mothers have safe deliveries. We also witnessed the great heroic act from one of our maternity doctors as described below.
Whisper's mission is to change healthcare through love and care and this is exactly what one of our doctors follows.
An act from our Assistant Chief Medical Officer, very selfless Whisper's full time doctor, one who goes all extremes to give the very best to his patients, even if it would necessitate putting his own life at risk, a true Identity of what Whisper stands for, and a proper representation of why we all wake up each single day and put on our Whisper Uniforms to serve, only God has your best reward in store
Last month Whisper received an extraordinary patient at it's gate, an expecting mother, at term with 1P/Scar and unable to push. She had however been pushed away from various health facilities with fear to perform c-section because of an underlying condition that had attributed to a low platelet count of 47cells.
However our very own Assistant Chief Medical Officer, who was on his official annual leave, decided to take the extra step, and donate his own fresh blood through Jinja blood bank and later on operated the patient, with his own blood running to save the mother.
The mother delivered a bouncing baby, and both are now well.
Whisper is very proud that we can truly deliver the maximum for the donation given by you, ensuring that not only our clients are given the necessary services but also ensuring that Whisper employs the right personnel.
