This Mother Is Struggling To Save Her Extremely Premature Born Baby Girl

Life is all but a balance-sheet of ups and downs, and perhaps no one understands the fact as better as Mamta Gandhi.

"Few months back, I was staying in a posh locality of Mumbai with my husband and two daughters. Now, we stay in a rented apartment as Kandivali and my newborn is in hospital, struggling to live", said Mamta Gandhi somberly.
12-years after her second daughter was born, Mamta (35) was pregnant with her third child. It was an unexpected pregnancy for the couple as with the second child-birth, the doctors declared that the couple won't be able to conceive anymore.

"When we confirmed the pregnancy, I was happy. It felt like a brief  reprieve from all the shocks that the life has been giving my family. Little did I knew, life wasn't done beating us to our knees yet!" continued Mamta.

Life takes an unfortunate turn

Mamta's baby was born extremely premature at 24 weeks on June 14, 2017. Due to her underdeveloped organs, the baby was rushed to NICU seconds after she was born. For a month, she was kept on ventilator support as her still developing body couldn't support lifeforms. Even now, the baby is on CPAP machine support due to respiratory distress syndrome. The hospital bills keep piling up and Mamta can't help but appear anxious at the prospect of keeping her baby in the hospital for a longer period of time.

"Its been already a month and half. Doctors say that she will require more time if we want her to live. But there is no question of if here. Of course I want my baby to live. It kills me to see her tiny frame being pierced with needles and breathing pipe. But I am also worried about the money. We are no longer in a position where we could pay her hospital bills", said Mamta.
The estimated cost of baby's hospital stay is Rs.11.5 lakhs. It is an amount well beyond the capabilities of Mamta and her husband.

"We were into gold business. Few months back, we lost everything : our business, our home and even well-wishes of our friends and family. Now we have nothing. We are barely managing to earn our daily bread. We have no means to arrange Rs. 11 lakhs now. No one will give us loan also", said Mamta. 
Mamta and her husband have two elder daughter, (15 & 12-year-old) and they also have to look after their extended family. Mamta's husband is the only earning member.

"I am really scared for my baby's future. If we can't arrange the funds in next few weeks, we won't have any other option than to take her home. Doctors say that she won't survive anything out of this NICU. I don't want my baby to die. Please help me save her", said Mamta with a break in her voice.
