Ziaka had been brought to the hospital a few days before. She had lost twins. Her story is typical. She tried to give birth in her remote village, without any skilled assistance. Ziaka already has three children. But she will never have any more. She suffered a ruptured uterus. Many other Badakhshan women who suffer this complication during birth cannot reach medical care and die of blood loss.
