"I see all these parents, taking their babies back home, babies younger than mine. He was not extremely premature too. I thought 3-4 days of stay would be enough but his condition got worse each day and I never got to even hold him properly. He is my only child and I don't want to lose him too"- Fathima, mother
I already lost a child last year, I can't take it if it happens again...When Fathima was in the 6th month of her pregnancy last year, she got heartbreaking news that her child is suffering from severe heart disease and won't be able to survive for long.
"Even if there was a chance of 1 % to save my baby, I was ready to take it but every doctor and hospital we visited said the same thing - that it will be highly risky to operate on the baby. She...my baby girl died after 14 days of her birth. I coudn't save her, I don't want to lose him too"- Fathima
He is recovering, but I have nothing to continue his treatmentThe baby is just 26 days old and already has gone through multiple medical procedures. Born at 34 weeks, their baby had respiratory distress and soon had abdomen distension too for which he had to undergo a major surgery. Abdominal distension occurs when substances, such as air (gas) or fluid, accumulate in the abdomen causing its expansion.
"Whatever we had and borrowed, we have spent everything in these 3-4 weeks. He is recovering and I am trying hard, I really am but I am starting to lose hope now. I am unable to keep up with the expenses. Allah please save my child, he is all I have."- Khaja,father
"Last time the situation was completely different, there was no hope then...now he is responding positively. Just 2-4 weeks more in NICU and I can take him home. I just want to be a mother, I want my son to stay by my side. Please Allah don't take him away too."- Fathima, breaing into tears
They entire tretament would cost them 8 lakh rupees which they can't afford. Khaja works as a salesman in a small cloth shop and his monthly income of Rs. 10,000 is not enough to save his son.
