Cynthia's birth story
Cynthia tells of how her baby was born prematurely and only weighed 1,86kg. 

I'm mother of 3 kids now.It happened on the 23 June 2012,after 3pm I had mild pains in my abdomen then the pains started getting worse my brother,sister law & husband rushed me to the hospital.I wasn't ready as my due date was 29 June,so you can imagine the rush and the surprise we were in.

Eventually we arrived at the hospital around 6:30pm they told me I'm just 1cm dilated then Doctor told me I'll give birth inthe morning am still far off.Little did they know that my baby was ready to come before 11pm contraction was so close I felt that its time.

When nurse was busy checking my bp the baby decided to come right there,there was know time to push it happened just once.It was great moment but scary there she was weighing 1,86kg which was not good to hear.We had to stay a week longer for her to gain at least 100g extra before we could take her home.

Glad that she now weighs 3,9kg growing fine.
