Shakeela Faryad's Story
26-years old and a resident of Lahore, Shakeela Faryad is 21 weeks pregnant. Mother of a child already, Shakeela belongs to an underprivileged family. The husband is a victim of poliovirus while the only income that finds its way into her house is via her mother-in-law. But that is also not a lot and hovers between 6000-7000 PKR/month. In these tough financial circumstances, Shakeela has been recommended by her doctor that she will need a LSCS for safe delivery, around the 38th week of pregnancy. A costly surgical procedure that has Shakeela worried all the time!
Lower segmentation Caesarean section or commonly dubbed as LSCS is the most common type of C-section. In this surgical procedure, an incision is made to minimize blood loss during birthing. A cut is made a little above the urinary bladder’s connection with the uterus. The location of this incision is the lower segment, hence the process is called lower segmentation C-section. The biggest benefit associated with this type of C-section is the quick recovery of the maternal tissues.
But Shakeela is a brave and optimistic mother, as the following words from her show that:
“I will admit that life is punching me and my unborn baby right now. But I am a mother. And like any other mother, I will not give up easily. I will try to fight for my baby until the very end. But I need your support. Transparent Hands has raised voice for me before as well, I hope a good number of you join hands with the nonprofit for my cause”
