Wanting a child more than anything, the couple opted for IVF as their last resort
“On one side, we dealt with the pain of being childless; and on the other, well there were taunts. We lived through that for years, till we could no more. Two years ago, I quit my job for we decided to opt for the IVF method as a last resort. Jaya needed me! We badly wanted to be parents! We lived for it!” – Prakash.
Jaya delivered an extreme preterm baby boy, who's now fighting for life
“We had planned to have a baby shower during her 8th month but one day, in the 7th month, everything changed. There was no blood circulation and they said they had to get the baby out or it won’t make it. A baby boy was born that day, but we don’t remember even smiling. Because, he was fighting death!” – Prakash.
“When I first saw him after 3 days, my heart broke. He was so small and weak. It has been over three months now, and he’s still there. We eat no more than a meal each day, and it’s been weeks since we slept. This is getting difficult for us with every passing day,” – Jayalakshmi breaks down.
“I quit my job two years ago, so I could be there for Jaya. All my savings till then, we spent on her treatment and medication – more than 10 lakhs. We were living off my father’s pension. The plan was to start working after the delivery. But first the state of our baby changed the plan, then the Corona Pandemic. I managed to borrow loans from as many as I could, but I know I will never be able to afford the 20 lakhs! I just want to bring him home, already. Please help us!” – Prakash.
This baby is everything this couple has ever wanted in life. Your generous contribution can help them save him and take him home.
