Description:
“Juana was 23 years old when she gave birth to her second child in the rural clinic in Mexico that I work at. Her labor went well, but after the birth, the placenta would not come out and she started bleeding heavily. Juana quickly became pale and weak and fell into unconsciousness. We had heard about the LifeWrap just weeks before at a community outreach meeting, so we struggled to get Juana in the back of a truck and drove nearly two hours to the nearest secondary level facility. Immediately, staff applied the LifeWrap. As soon as the last section of the garment was on, she stopped bleeding. Juana began to murmur, her eyelashes fluttered, and in five minutes she was awake.” Clinic Midwife, Mexico
