Atharva Bimasena Saputra and Ataya Tatjana Aisyah Putri, twins of Cynthia Lamusu and Surya Saputra, were born prematurely and treated in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) of RSIA Bunda Jakarta.
This causes the children of Cynthia had to undergo treatment in the NICU room.
On Mother’s Day, December 22, 2016, the whole family finally reunited at their home. “I feel grateful that the children and we can go home and gather. It’s a relief. I am a complete mother; the children are back home,” said Cynthia.
Once at home, Cynthia underwent a kind of ‘isolation’ to take care of her baby after the NICU. “For four months, my children and I cannot leave the house. They come out only in the morning sun. The doctor told us not to allow any guest to touch the babies. Given, the physical endurance of premature babies is more vulnerable. If you are sick, you can lose weight drastically. To gain weight again, it’s hard to ask for forgiveness,” said Cynthia, imitating the doctor’s advice.
