“I was so excited that I was going to be a mother, that too for the very first time. But it was only the 7th month of pregnancy and I had the delivery. That wasn’t it, I couldn’t even see my baby for days. When I saw her for the first time after 2-3 days, she was so small and weak. She was attached to all these machines and was not moving much…” - Swarna, unable to continue
10 minutes! How will that ever be enough to be with my baby?The baby girl was born prematurely with very low birth weight of 700grams and was immediately shifted to the ICU for survival. The baby has been battling for 2 months now.
“My baby is vulnerable to infections, so we are allowed to see her only once in a day for 10 minutes. We know it's for her good but it's hard you know...just 10 minutes! How will that ever be enough? I haven’t touched her or kissed her till now. Every day my heart sinks...I feel helpless, looking at her and unable to hold her in my arms. I just want all of this to be over and take my baby home.” - Swarna
“I work as a daily wage labourer. I paint walls and terrace for a living. I don’t make much but I somehow managed so far. But due to the situations outside, I am unable to work like before. It’s getting harder each day." Ramana, father
The baby needs constant intensive care. She is almost cured but still needs few more weeks to fully recover. Without the NICU, it will be difficult to save her.
