Ms. Lina, a woman from Bojong Manjah, Bandung, was very panic because she was bleeding. She was 7 months pregnant with twins, but she was having contraction already and blood had flowed between her legs. Mrs. Lina was immediately taken to the nearest health center when she was bleeding and then referred to a hospital. She had to give birth prematurely because there had been bleeding and had entered into the opening 3. Mrs. Lina's twin baby were born with weigh 800 grams and 900 grams which is considered as low birth weight. The baby's weight is said to be less or low when weighing less than 2.5 kilograms. This often occurs in babies born prematurely or before entering 37 weeks of gestation. The special sign of your baby having a low birth weight is looking thin, having a little body fat, and a large and disproportionate head size. Another cause of low birth weight is when having twins. Generally, twins will be born faster than normal time, and the fetus does not have much space to grow and develop in the uterus. In addition, a baby's low weight can be caused by a disturbance in the placenta caused by preeclampsia or high blood pressure when pregnant.
Both Mrs. Lina's babies were female and must be treated in the NICU room (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) in a hospital that is different from their place of birth. Twin babies of Ms. Lina also experienced lung and stomach bleeding because they were born prematurely and had low birth weight. After a few days while being treated at the NICU, one of Ms. Lina's babies passed away. Of course the mother felt very devastated. Now there is only one baby in intensive care. Ms. Lina's baby needs several types of medicine that must be purchased outside the hospital. Mrs. Lina and her husband experienced financial difficulties for the medicine needed.
