Hi, i have just given birth 4 days ago via emergency c-section to 32 weeks premature twins girl, Adelia and Amelia. Weighing at 1.4kg and 1.6kg for the older twin, both twin are seperated at the NICU(neonatal intensive care unit) and special care nursery to be monitored all rounded, until their RDS conditions stabilise(Respiratory distress syndrome) to be able to breathe on their own and weighs at 2kg minimum before we can bring them home.
Our family has been advised by the doctors to look at a minimum time of a month stay in the hospital(NICU and special care nursery with no other available options) with estimated of 45k(SGD$45,000) in hospitalization bills not inclusive of their mother's delivery charges.
I had to stop working 5 months into pregnancy, as i was at high risk of miscarriage due to my cervix not able to support the twins weight thus bleeding on and off. I have been on strict instructions to be on bed rest until delivery. The whole pregnancy has caused me and my family alot of financial distress as i was in pain most of the time and having to be admitted to delivery suite emergency a couple of times before. My husband a sole bread winner lost his job because of this.
And currently while i still have difficulty walking, my husband has to go back and forth to the hospital to deliver breastmilk and care for our twins and me with no proper confinement.
On our part, we have used up our medisave and sold off our car and valuables to raise more than half of the fees needed. With a house (bto) upcoming, at this rate we will have to forego it entirely.
We seek your help to help our family overcome this obstacle.
Your kind generousity will help fund mostly their medical bill, the parents daily transportation to and fro the hospital to deliver the breast milks every day and other costly necessity such as formula milk for the premature and specialist visits and checkups for the premature and sustain the family for a month or two while my husband finds a job. Thank you very much and may god bless.
