Outreach Centre Fistula Hospital, Yirgalem, Ethiopia - this woman is resting on a bank on the outdoor corridor of the hospital, recovering from her operation. Most women lose their children during long, obstructed labour. The hospital cares for whole families if they come to ask for help after experiencing incontinence that occurs if the long labour leads to holes in the vagina due to loss of blood circulation when the head of the baby presses into the perineum. If the women get pregnant again, the doctors here arrange for C-Sections to be performed during the next pregnancies.
