Natalène Francois, 24, holds her baby at MSF’s Centre de Référence en Urgency Obstétricale (CRUO) in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, October 16,
2015. Last Tuesday, October 13, Natalène had a c-section, one month before her due date because she was suffering from dangerously high blood pressure (140 over 130).
She still feels the pain in her belly from the wound. Most women in her family delivered in this hospital so it was familiar to her. She was having contractions for two days when she came to MSF. She was very tired and in a lot of pain. "When I first saw my baby, I was shocked. I cried and my heart was beating fast. I was panicked because nobody in my family ever delivered such a small baby.” Photo by Shiho Fukada for Médecins Sans Frontières
