We have been receiving mostly women from Khamer town or places nearby. The most complicated pregnancies we used to receive are from faraway districts where women do not enjoy good health due to poor nutrition. We do not see many of them nowadays as they cannot afford the high prices of transportation. These women and their families are the poorest in the area. Above all, they do not have other health facilities around. Many women are now delivering at home with unskilled attendants, which puts them in danger if they have complications or if they need a C-Section. Some of those who can make it to the hospital come very late and lose their babies.
