Latha’s Baby Is Born

The news about Latha is not good. She was admitted to the hospital January 4th in labor. Our volunteer clinic doctor, Dr. Ajith, and our directors arrived at around 10.00 p.m. Latha’s husband & parents were unable to make the trip from Waitalawa village to the city. In the second stage of delivery, the umbilical cord was wrapped around the baby’s neck making normal delivery impossible. Doctors performed a surgical delivery. Due to the delay, the baby was in fetal distress. The baby girl is now in an incubator in the hospital’s special infant care unit. We checked on both mother and baby today but the condition is not stable yet.
