A pregnant woman from Katosi was given a scan on arrival at Herona Hospital. The pregnancy was 27 weeks but the scan showed a premature rupture of the membrane (PROM) . She explained she had already lost 3 babies to the same condition. Although we do have an incubator at HHL it was decided the baby would have a higher chance of survival at larger city hospital with larger neo-natal unit. So she was taken with a midwife in the ambulance. On the way the mother pushed, but luckily the ambulance is well equipped and has plenty of the room. The birth was carried out successfully and mother and baby are doing fine. Everyone could not be happier, well done to all involved.

Being witness to a mother arriving at Herona Hospital already dead from child birth is extremely difficult.
