“It’s been just a year since our marriage. My husband loves kids and we could not wait to have kids of our own and God blessed us with twin babies. Our joy doubled! We were counting days to see them. Everything was great until the day my labor pains started—way too early. I sometimes wonder if we jinxed our happiness ourselves.”
– Mounika, Mother
Their happiness was short-livedMounika gave birth to premature twins, a boy and a girl, on the 1st of June this year. The babies were born prematurely at just 33 weeks(7.5 months) due to complications. Currently, they are fighting to survive in the NICU.
The baby girl is suffering from anemia, respiratory distress amongst other complications, whereas, the baby boy has been diagnosed with Pneumoperitoneum, a condition where there is the presence of air in his abdominal cavity. He needs to undergo a minor surgery called Exploratory Laparotomy. Both of them are extremely frail and need NICU care for another 30 days to recover without which they won't be able to make it.
They are struggling to take their every breath
“My babies look so weak and critical. I’m unable to look at them in this state, surrounded by wires and tubes. They were supposed to be in our arms safe and sound, instead, they are struggling to take their every breath. On the other hand, I am failing to afford the cure. I am struggling to pay the hospital bills and manage the travel and food expenses. I fear to lose them because of my inability, I don't know what to do or how to save them,”

“I am feeling helpless for the first time in my life. The doctors have said I need to arrange another 30 Lakh rupees to keep my babies in NICU and give them the required treatment. Where will I go for so much money? Arranging just 2.5 Lakhs took every contact I knew and now, I really cannot think of a way. It’s beyond my means. All I ask is for my babies to get well enough to take them home.” – Sudheer, Father
