Christina

is worried about her unborn child

I am 26 and pregnant with my third baby. My husband comes from the next village. He has another wife, which is common in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea.

“I was supposed to give birth more than 3 weeks ago. I have been kicked three times in my belly, and I’m really worried about my baby”

I’ve come to the safe house to take refuge with Mama Lina. I went to the clinic today but they have almost no medicine, so I will try find someone who can take me to the hospital in Garoka.

I can’t think about the future of my baby, until at least I give birth safely.
