Pregnancy is both beautiful and terrifying—and Fauzia had experienced it six times. Imagine her pain and disappointment when each pregnancy ended in a miscarriage or a stillbirth. A woman can only take so much.

But, friends like you stepped in to help break the cycle. Your gifts helped her get the right care, both physically and spiritually.

Fauzia sought help from an antenatal medical project you helped fund, and the physician’s assistant diagnosed her with an infectious disease caused by bacteria. Proper treatment cleared it up in two months, and Fauzia immediately got pregnant again.

The PA followed the new mother’s progress throughout the pregnancy, making sure the baby developed well and calming Fauzia’s fears. At eight months, the woman got anxious, terrified she would give birth to another dead child. So, the PA prayed for her and asked God to bless the infant growing in her womb.

The PA continued to visit Fauzia’s home for daily prayer until the mother delivered a healthy baby boy!

Thank you for helping to show this woman God’s loving power. And, thank you for helping her experience the gift of motherhood. Please pray for other women who are grieving stillborn children. Pray God comforts their broken hearts.
