Our stories – Rachel

Today Rachel is a happy mother!
Rachel is a young mother of 26 who 11 months ago gave birth to little Sheila at the BMC hospital. About three years ago, Rachel had gone to a hospital in the suburbs complaining about abdominal pains. She was told she was suffering from a fybro-mioma, a benign tumor located in the uterus. Seeing as the hospital was not equipped to treat her, the young woman, together with her husband, went to the Benedict Medical Centre for further checks. After verifying the benign nature of the tumor, the BMC doctors decided on a surgical procedure to remove it. The operation was successful and Rachel returned home.
She once again turned to the BMC last year to be followed during her first pregnancy. The doctors followed her through to her birth, bringing her little girl to the world by performing a caesarean section.
