Ni Ketut Ayu Parwati


1 year old Downs Syndrome baby Ayu was brought to our attention by a local midwife when she was two months old. It was feared that she had low thyroxine level, heart condition and was at a severe risk of long term problems if these were untreated. Thankfully through assessment and regular monitoring, her condition is stable and she is achieving her developmental milestones, albeit slightly delayed. She is picked up from her village in Karangasem every month and transported to the main hospital for monitoring which lasts several days during which time we provide food and a simple room for the family to rest.
