"I was bleeding every day but I chose to go to work so I could save for the delivery"Mary was working as an accountant in a firm. In December, she experienced heavy bleeding. This continued until January but Mary had no choice but to continue working.
"We had saved some money, enough for the delivery but due to my excessive bleeding, we exhausted that money. When doctors asked me to get admitted immediately, I decided not to because that meant no money for the next few months. Despite this, we spent over a lakh before my child was born."
Mary's husband, Paul, used to work as a driver but he had to leave his job to take care of Mary and the child.
"I can only spend 4 hours with my baby"
The baby is in the neonatal care unit in Cloudnine hospital. He has developed infections and needs to be on antibiotics for the next three weeks.
Mary is allowed to stay with the baby only while feeding him. Doctors recommended that she should be admitted to the hospital ward so she can feed the baby but since Mary and Paul cannot afford the hospitalisation, they are staying at their home.
Everyday, this young mother has to travel over 14 kilometers to get a glimpse of her son and feed him. The cost of treatment for the next 3 weeks is nearly Rs. 3,50,000 and this might increase if they the stay prolongs.
The Hospital and its team of doctors have provided the best possible priority care for this baby. They have generously waived off as much as fee as possible and have applied for discounted service charges too. Please help the family cope with this difficult situation. "
