We met Anthonia (21) on our boat ride into the Sogunro community. Her husband was in charge of the boat and he asked about our reason for visiting the community. we explained and he asked if his wife could come along. We were her first contact with skilled health care in pregnancy at almost 7 months gestation. We also learnt from her that she has been pregnant twice and has lost both babies at 1&9month respectively. It was alarming for us so we made referral this time a member of the team had to go with her. We reached out to the MOH of Lagos mainland local government who assisted us and ensured that Anthonia had a complete blood test (HIV, Blood group genotype, PCV
She delivered her set of twins (boy&girl) weighing 3.2kg and 2.7kg on the 4th of November 2017.
