Working together to save a little life

By Tim Holmes | Fundraising Coordinator

In low resource settings, we may think it's enough to provide just some of the health services we take for granted in developed countries. But with maternal and infant health, it is so important that all aspects of care can be available as so often various disciplines are needed in quick succession to ensure both mother and baby have the best chance of survival. 

Pwenta's story shows how important pre-nantal checks are, combined with the ability to provide immediate emergency care for mother and baby. 

We met Pwenta and her three-day-old baby boy in the Neonatal Care Unit at our partner hospital, HCBH. She was standing by his cot, looking lovingly at her newborn son, who was born prematurely on February 7th 2024.

Pwenta lives in Cap Haitien, and this was her first pregnancy. She had come into HCBH a few days earlier for a routine ultrasound - which was when the doctor had noticed something was wrong, and Pwenta urgently needed to deliver her baby. She was quickly prepped for surgery and taken for an emergency C-section, and her baby boy was born shortly after. Due to being born prematurely, he was taken to the NCU, where he is now receiving specialist care as he grows and builds his strength.

When asked about her dreams for her son in the future, Pwenta simply said: “I just want him to be healthy”. She then added that she hopes he grows up to be a doctor - so that he can help others, just as he himself was helped.
