A woman has taken to social media to thank the doctor who helped her give birth after a complicated pregnancy. The lady gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
Siyanda Ndiki shared her story on the #ImStaying Facebook group. She shared how she was rushed to Stutterheim Hospital at 28 weeks after having suffered pregnancy complications. She met Dr Madondo as the hospital and the kind doctor reassured her that they would save her baby.
"She put me on steroids in case of premature delivery she gave all the necessary medication and I was sent to another hospital in Mdantsane for more tests."
She was then discharged. At 37 weeks she fell ill again and struggled to walk. She was admitted in hospital where they discovered that the baby had an abnormal heart rate.
"They worked like lightening, even though I was so scared they gave me hope."
The mommy managed to give birth to a healthy baby girl.
"Dr Madondo kept her promise to deliver this baby alive, she saved her life twice and am grateful for that."
Social media users congratulated the mom and praised the doctor. Facebook user Nomvula Ngcobo said:
"Congratulations. I had the same problem in my 26 weeks and the doctor in King Edward Hospital did everything to stop the pains... I hope God can protect us, we're 30 weeks now."
