Prolonged but twin babies delivered successfully a

Humla district is still not connected with road so access to district is through plane which operates from only district headquarter and other is to walk to the nook and corners of the district. PHASE Nepal has been working in Humla district for over 8 years now and has been providing health and education services. It has been working in some of the most remote VDCs in the district.  Maila is one the very remote VDC of Humla situated at a distance of 48 miles from the district headquarters. The people were aloof from even basic health facilities before PHASE Nepal started working in the VDC. People visit Health post where PHASE Nepal provides health services and free medicines to the people.

Mrs. Putla, a 45 year old woman was pregnant. It was the 13th time she had become pregnant and all her previous pregnancies were successful bearing 12 offsprings. When she started suffering from labour pain her husband rushed her to the health post where PHASE Nepal health staff work with government staff. The government staff were not present but health staff of PHASE Nepal were present. Upon inspection it was found that she had twins in her womb hence health staff informed her husband to take Mrs. Putla to either Nepalgunj or Kolti and gave him a referral letter for the same. But because of the poor economic status and the time needed to take her to any of the places, her husband requested the health staff to deliver the babies in Maila health post. He signed a waiver letter also for this. His first baby was delivered at around 5 in the morning. The health staff informed him that the other twin baby should be delivered within two hours, if not then she had to be taken to Kolti.

Putla's husband was informed to manage fund for the travel expenses. He went to his village to arrange for funds but had to return empty handed. The two hours had passed and PHASE health staffs were worried. Their expertise in such cases was limited hence to save her life, they contacted experts in Kathmandu for advice and guidance. From the telephonic instructions they were able to deliver other twin baby at 12.55 in the noon. It is rare that a twin is delivered after such a prolonged period. Although it was a case of prolonged twin delivery but both the babies were present in vertex hence the advice and guidance of experts enabled the health staff to deliver the second twin even after prolonged period.

Putla's husband is thankful to health staff of PHASE Nepal for saving the lives of his wife and twin babies.
