While on route to the hospital with these little ones, we received another call for help from Samban village. A woman named Paulina had delivered one baby but was unable to deliver the twin. As soon as pilot Luke Hamer landed back in Wewak with the first set, SA pilot Tracy Hamer immediately began preparations for the next flight. She took off shortly after to meet the laboring mother.
Arriving back once again at Boram Hospital, our second mother, Paulina, was attended by Dr. Angela Seginami who confirmed the transverse twin. Within 15 minutes, she expertly repositioned and delivered the baby boy.
Paulina and her healthy twin sons returned home to their village just a few days later, and 3 weeks after their birth, the premature twins from Angoram are slowly gaining weight and have even begun to feed without the assurance of a feeding tube.
