A young first-time mother Pearl Monteiro has appealed for help to meet the medical expenses of AED 490,000 (87,00,000 in Indian Rupees) for her twins born prematurely in the 6th month of her pregnancy at Latifa Hospital in January.
Due to severe bleeding ( placenta previa ) I was admitted in the hospital in my 5th month of my pregnancy and was advised by doctors to be in hospital till the end of my delivery, however on 11th of Jan I had another instance of severe bleeding and doctors had to rush me for an emergency c-section.
My babies ( girl and boy ) were born at 700 and 800grams respectively and were admitted to the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of Latifa Hospital for over two-and-a-half months and the basic charges for NICU were approximately Dh3,500 (Approx 62,000 in Indian Rupees) per child per day.
I had health insurance and hoped that it would cover the hospital stay and charges. But the insurance only ended up covering AE 300,000 ( 53,50,000 in Indian Rupees)
I request all, please do help out in whatever way you’ll can. Even a small contribution will go a long way in helping the two little twins
