Story Girija Devi, 30 year old lady (G5 P2 L0 A2), attended our ANC clinic for the first time in May 2003 when she was two months pregnant. She had the previous history of four miscarriages. Her first child died before completing one month. The second one was a stillbirth at full term while the third and fourth pregnancies ended in abortions. She was diagnosed to have chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. She took regular treatment throughout her pregnancy. On 13th January 2003, she underwent a Caesarean section for no progress in labour and gave birth to a healthy male baby. During her hospital stay she and her family members had the opportunity to hear the Gospel. Six weeks after the delivery she came for her regular postnatal check up and eagerly showed her son to all the staff in the ANC clinic. She kept saying that her little son smiles and even tries to speak!! Probably a Thank you to all the staff who prayed and cared for his mother. Officers SAO/Administrator : Mr. P.
