Baby Gai Vinh
Lai gave birth in the Da Nang Hospital for Women & Children’s delivery suite, following a premature amniotic membrane rupture at 28 weeks, to a baby girl weighing just 900 grams. Baby Gai Vinh was slow to breathe, her respiration rate, pulse and oxygen saturation were poor and she was transferred from the delivery suite to the NICU critical care room. She was immediately started on a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine and she stayed in critical care for 20 days. She is now being weaned from CPAP and nursed by her mother in the Kangaroo Mother Care room.
“I was very worried and sad for my baby because she was born so early and so small. I would like to say a special thank you to the NICU, they saved my baby’s life and give me great support at this difficult time. The nurses support me in my heart to be strong for my baby and teach me many things about how to care for her. Everyday I practice Kangaroo Mother Care to help my baby grow stronger and to give her my love. Now my baby is 37 days old and weighs 1,300 grams, she gets stronger everyday.”
