I am a mother of three. My first delivery was at a private hospital, and my second and third babies were delivered at LifeSpring. The charges at the private hospital were crazy, super expensive. We couldn’t afford it.
When I got pregnant with my second child, I didn’t want to go to a government hospital, even though it’s free. I have to go to the hospital alone because my husband works as an electrician, and there is no one there to care for me at the government hospital. At LifeSpring, I feel safe and well cared for. My husband doesn’t have to worry about me when I’m at LifeSpring.
When my little girl was on her way, my mother, my husband and my mother-in-law were all outside and I was in the operating room. l felt very alone.
But the doctors and nurses at LifeSpring helped me a lot. I felt like I had family around me. I didn’t feel alone at all.
I was the first in my family to come to LifeSpring. Since I’ve come here, my sister-in-law and my husband’s sister-in-law have followed. Now everyone in my family comes here. I love being a mother. Everything I do now is for my children. Our oldest daughter is a girl, and we want her to be a doctor here at LifeSpring.
