A baby girl, who was born at 27 weeks’ gestation has been hospitalised for treatment and observation for seven months. She can be discharged from the hospital now, but due to bronchiectasis, she needs to rely on CPAP machine to assist her breathing after returning home. One Hope Charity has agreed to assist the baby girl with a CPAP ventilator, so that she can return home for reunion.

The infertile couple successfully conceived through IVF. Unexpectedly, the mother had bleeding at 27 weeks of pregnancy, and the cervix was opened at 7cm, so the mother could give birth at any time. The baby was born prematurely on 14 December 2021.

Baby Yee Zi En from Serdang in Selangor was born prematurely, and her organs were not fully developed. She has been treated and observed in an incubator for seven months. The baby girl has bronchiectasis. She will breathe too hard if she breathes on her own, and her chest will be concave, and the breathing will not be smooth. Therefore, she needs to rely on a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) respiratory machine and a catheter to drink milk.

A few days ago, the doctor allowed the baby girl to be discharged from the hospital, but the house needs to have a CPAP respiratory machine, and the baby needs 24-hour care. The mother has been visiting the baby every day at the hospital, and now, she prepares to take care of the baby round the clock.

The 40-year-old father Yee Shi Chin is a property management manager with a monthly salary of RM6,500. Her 40-year-old mother Chong Chwee Theng is a teacher, so the baby’s hospitalisation fee is free. She has been extending her leave since she delivered. At present, the family is depending on the father to support the family. He needs to pay for the car and housing loan, the parents of both husband and wife, and other expenses. They need to spend even more after the baby is being discharged, such as replacing the catheter and the spare parts of the medical equipment, so they applied a CPAP machine from One Hope Charity.

After reviewing the case following a home visit, One Hope Charity decided to lend a CPAP machine to the premature baby, so that she can return home and reunites with the family.
