mother saved after being in labor for more than 12
ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE PROJECT FOR MONTHS OF DEC &NOV2012
In the last part of 2012 Dec/Nov 49 live births and a total of 50 mothers were registered for ANC (Antenatal care) which is of great joy to the project that assists these mothers to access services that would otherwise be expensive for them to receive.
Of the 50 mothers who came in from the villages, 45 tested HIV negative while 5 tested HIV positive. ARVs for PMTCT were provided to these mothers until their date of delivery.
Spontaneous vertex deliveries (SVD) were 29 while caesarean sections recorded were 30 mothers these were necessary because;
10 mothers had poor descent of the presenting part despite good uterine contractions (obstructed labor), 4 had two previous scars,
1 had afresh scar (she conceived within 6months after first Cesarean section),
3 presented with Postdatism (pregnant for more than 42 weeks were 2mothers).
2 mothers were received who came in with reduced amniotic fluid and c/s was done on them to reduce the risk of losing both the baby and the mother.
One mother’s tale
Kyomuhendo (not real names) of Bukuto Kigarama Ibanda district, was identified by our health village team during their family visits. She had been in labor for more than twelve hours. An ambulance was dispatched immediately after receipt of information at the facility with a midwife. Kyomuhendo was brought to our hospital (Mayanja memorial hospital) and taken to maternity wing. She was received, obstetric surgeon was in wait, a caesarean section was carried out and a baby boy delivered.
The mother was grateful for the services offered and she promised to spread the gospel as she called it to other village members.
Thank you to our Global giving partners who make this possible and please join us to save more mothers; even one dollar makes a difference.
