Saving the life of mother and baby

Saving the life of mother and baby

In my work, especially in obstetrics, I deal with the life and death of both mothers and children. Recently an 18-year-old pregnant lady at 36 weeks of gestation came to the emergency room with a complaint of bleeding and abdominal pain. Talking with her, I gathered that she had never had any antenatal check-ups. She was in critical condition, so she was taken to the operating room for a Caesarian section. She was suffering a placental abruption with foetal distress. Blood transfusions and IV fluids were given and with the support of my team members, I was able to help save the lives of this young mother and her baby.
