SG 73

Jocelyne was pregnant. She knew that all pregnant women feel tired, but she never felt as though she was getting enough sleep. Sometimes she felt feverish as well. Her sister encouraged her to visit Maison de Naissance, which was in the nearby village of Larnage and provided modern, expert pregnancy care.

It took her another two weeks to get enough money to pay for a motorbike taxi, but she made it to Maison de Naissance and waited in the thatched roof courtyard for her appointment. To her surprise, the staff came out first thing in the morning and prayed with all of the waiting women, that their babies would be healthy and that God would guide the hands and minds of the midwives and their assistants.

Shortly afterward, Jocelyne found herself inside, being weighed and having her blood pressure checked. As soon as she told the assistant midwife about her fatigue and fevers, she was sent to the laboratory. A test confirmed that she had malaria, and needed treatment right away. Jocelyne was worried; her friend’s child had been stillborn after her friend had malaria during pregnancy. Jocelyne received medicine for the malaria, prenatal vitamins, iron to help build up healthy red blood cells, and an appointment to come back in a month. She kept looking around for where she should pay for her care, but the clerk at the front desk only smiled and told her there would be no charge.

Jocelyne continued to come to Maison de Naissance – four visits in all. She labored naturally and her beautiful daughter was brought into the world at a healthy six pounds. Jocelyn’s story would be very different if not for YOUR gift of life. Your support of our prenatal care visits, medications and lab tests, brings life to our neighbors in rural Haiti. Many, many thanks!
