“I woke up and I panicked that my baby was not by my side, my husband’s eyes were swollen and that scared me to my core. I asked him about our baby and then I got to know that my child is struggling to breathe and has been taken to the NICU, I couldn’t even see him.”- Bhavna,mother
Bhavna and Jignesh gave birth to a baby boy a couple of weeks ago but he was born prematurely in the early eighth month of her pregnancy. The baby was underweight. The baby had respiratory problems and was gasping for breath the very next minute that he was born and immediately put in NICU.
When Bhavna met her son for the first time in 27 days
“ Yesterday was the first time I saw him from this close. I could touch my baby for the first time. All this while I just stood there at the glass door outside and then a nurse came and pulled the curtains. Now I know how he looks like. But he is still so tiny and… and all these machines and tubes around him, I can’t stop thinking about it. I just want to take him home.” - Bhavna
“The baby was barely 900 gms. Looking at his situation, everyone around me was saying that… they were saying that it will be a miracle if he stays alive. I lost hope too. But soon doctors said he will be fine and that if he is under constant observation and care, he will become healthy like any other newborn child. That was such a relief.” - Jignesh
My hope and relief came with a conditionOne month in NICU can save their son but with this hope there come another barrier for this couple. Jignesh works in a transporation company and the income is not enough to afford the treatment.
“But the treatment is so costly. Rs 10,000 a day? I don’t even earn that much in a month. I tried… I tried every way possible to arrange the money but I couldn’t. My wife is already suffering a lot and with all the financial tension, her health is getting affected. I am devastated and the thought of losing my son is very scary, the thought of how broken my wife will be is even more scary. I don’t know what to do."- Jignesh
The total cost of NICU stay and medication will be around 4 lakhs. With your generous contribution these parents can save their little angle and take him home. Without your help it is not possible.
