She found hope and joy when she got conceived just 5 months after the miscarriage. She was extra cautious about her diet and daily chores throughout her pregnancy. And her happiness knew no bounds when she delivered a healthy baby girl two months back.
Anusha’s daughter is out of ICU now. But her life is not entirely out of dangerAnusha’s baby girl was in ICU for 6 days undergoing treatment. Her lungs were severely infected which was affecting her heart. Every breathe was a painful struggle for her and she is constantly crying because of her breathing trouble. Looking at her improving condition, she was taken out of ICU a few days back. But she needs to stay in the hospital and continue her treatment.
“I thought I could finally take my daughter home once she was out of the intensive care. But the doctors said she needs to continue her treatment for a few more days. They’ve told us that infection is still there and she’s yet to recover. If she doesn’t continue her treatment, her condition will worsen again.” - Anusha, mother
