My name is Gina and I am from Mombasa, Kenya, where I was born and where I currently live. My twins are my fourth pregnancy. My first born was born in 2006, the second child was born in 2016 and my third child was born in 2018. Tragically, my little boy passed away when he was 6 months old.
This pregnancy went well and I was excited to welcome a new baby into our home. I arrived in the hospital at around 11:45am on October 17th, 2021. I was received by the doctor and nurse on duty, both of whom were very friendly to me and who quickly put me in a wheelchair to take me to the ward.
My situation was difficult and I thank the doctor and the nurse very much as they didn’t give up on me from the start to the finish of everything. I didn’t know I was carrying twins! What a surprise to receive! My first son came out with some difficulty, but the second one seemed to simply appear. I am very happy with everything in this facility, especially the gift package for my twin babies.
May God bless the Mercy Maternity Ward so much! I am so thankful my babies were born in such a beautiful and clean place and I am happy for all the other mothers who will get this chance. Thank you, AFCA, for the beautiful packages each of the boys received – blankets and clothes and diapers. You can see how beautiful they look here. I would never be able to buy such beautiful things for them and I am grateful for the care and generous gifts.
