Patient Story – Srey Nich

Srey Nich was born at Kratie Referral Hospital by emergency c-section. Her mother had eclampsia, an incredibly dangerous condition for both mother and baby, and arrived at the hospital in critical condition from her village over 40km away.

The Chenla team was in the operating theater during delivery and provided immediate care to Srey Nich, including neonatal resuscitation, as she could not breath on her own. Tragically, her mother passed away.

After 12 days in our NICU, Srey Nich was able to breath on her own and healthy enough to go home with her loving extended family. The Chenla team put together a care package for her family to help ensure they would have what they needed to care for her during this difficult time.
