International Business Times: Obstetric fistula: ‘I had bled the whole night when the doctor saw me – the baby had died’

International Business Times features Communications Officer Sarah Omega, who shares her experience with obstetric fistula and the obstacles she faced throughout her life.

“When I was 19, I was raped by a religious leader. I became pregnant,” Omega says. “Because of my religious background and because I was afraid as I had heard so many stories of women dying from abortions, I decided to keep the pregnancy.”
