Dr. Meena Performs High-Risk Delivery, Successfully Delivers Twins

This Easter weekend we were reminded of the the hard work continuing in Nepal as many of us in the UK were enjoying our bank holiday.

DFN Dr. Meena, was on-call this week in remote Mugu, when she was presented with an eighteen year old woman, at term with a twin pregnancy. The woman had pre-eclampsia and was in a dangerous situation.

Because she had access to Meena and the rural hospital she works in, she was able to be treated and monitored. Her blood pressure gradually lowered with the help of IV medication as she advanced in her labour.

The beautiful twins were born weighing 2200gm and 1800gm and mother and babies are now safe and well.
