For Seema, happiness was finally getting pregnant after fifteen years of struggling, after fifteen years of getting countless IVF treatments every few months as soon as they could afford it again. After fifteen years of raised hopes that ultimately got dashed, when Seema found out that she was finally pregnant, she was happy at last. But this happiness lasted only 28 weeks.
She fought so hard to bring him into this world - now he's fighting to stay in itOnly seven months into her pregnancy, Seema’s water broke, and she was rushed to the hospital, where the doctors were forced to induce preterm labor. Her precious miracle child was just 1.1kgs at birth, a mere 30% of the average weight of a healthy newborn. He has been stuck in the NICU ever since, lying in a glass cage instead of in his mother’s arms. He needs three to four more weeks of life support. Without it, he will die. But Praveen and Seema have run out of money.
“Over the past fifteen years I sold most of my family’s land back in my village to afford the IVF treatment for her, because it’s very expensive and I don’t make enough money at my job. Now I’ve sold the rest of it to afford my son’s treatment. But even that is running out.” - Praveen, father
“I cannot lose him. We’ve been through too much. But I don’t know what to do.” - Seema, mother
You are now these first-time parents’ last and only hope. Donate, so they can finally take their little miracle home.
