“Every night she cries herself to sleep and I cry along with her. When your small baby is in so much pain, what else can you do? Some nights - no one at home gets any sleep. It is very hard for us to see our daughter bear so much suffering,” says Lalitha, Rithvika's mother.
Lalitha was young and full of dreams. She remembers being a hopeful, optimistic person before the pregnancy. But all the fight has gone out of her in the face of her daughter's never-ending pain. She wants to embrace her baby, but even that hurts her so much she shrieks.
