Our expert says:
Indeed, what a terrible experience she must have gone through. Was she unable to get further than her own home, and thus not able to get to the clinic ? Or was there a problem at the clinic ? We really need far more provision of community-based and mobile midwives, in our maternity-care system, rather than expecting every woman to get to a clinic or hospital in time. Maybe there was already something seriously wrong with the baby, leading to the earlier than expected delivery, maybe the doctors will be able to tell her. I hope it will be practical for her to get support from her direct family and yours, and perhaps some counselling to help her get through this sad time
