‘Save My Wife’ by Nick Kristof
Reading this article just brought me back to the time when marchesa was giving birth to emma. she had a pretty long labor, more or less 13 hours from the time we got to the hospital until emma came out. the pushing part came pretty quick though didn’t even last 20 minutes.
i was right next to her, two doctors and a tirade of nurses were alternating in checking her making sure she is OK. I was a nervous wreck. I can see her pain, I could hear her cries, the strong squeeze from her hand, nothing could prepare you for this moment.
It was sheer joy for me when i first saw marchesa smile after emma came out. everything went very well.
this is not the story behind Prudence Lumekuono from Cameroon. her husband will never see her smile again …
