Now in her thirty-fifth week of pregnancy, Babita Ahirwar and her husband arrived at the Vidisha Sadar hospital in the Madhya Pradesh district. They were there for a routine ultrasound to verify that their baby was healthy. The newlyweds had always dreamed of starting a family together...
Babita, only 21 years old, had been married for just over eighteen months; they were looking forward to the birth of their first child. Babita and her husband, Jaswant Singh Ahirwar, 25, were unable to afford an ultrasound earlier than thirty-five weeks into Babita's pregnancy.
