Prone to pre-eclampsia, Jonia has had all three children by caesarean-section.
In the middle of the surgery for her second pregnancy, the power at the hospital went out.
"I was at the hospital for an ante-natal check-up, and it was found that my blood pressure was too high, so I was admitted for over a week for close monitoring. Finally, the decision was made to operate."
"At that time, there was power outage in the hospital, so they had to use a generator to provide power to operation theatre unit, haemodialysis unit, intensive care unit and the paediatric ward."
"During the operation - even with the generator -
the electricity in the operation theatre went out."
"The generator couldn’t sustain the four wards.”
With no other option available, the surgeons finished Jonia’s stitches by the torch light of a mobile phone.
