Australian Doctors fear for the life of a heavily pregnant asylum-seeker living in detention on Nauru who is suffering from preeclampsia and needs an emergency C-section as soon as possible.
She could die and yet remains on Nauru as our PM Turnbull refuses to have her brought to Australia for life saving medical care.
37-year-old Kuwaiti refugee Dee* is 37 weeks pregnant this week. Her baby is currently in a breech, or feet first, position and she also has a large fibroid, or benign tumour, on the wall of her uterus.
Last week doctors were worried Dee would go into spontaneous labour and haemorrhage if she wasn't flown from Nauru to Australia immediately to give birth.
Now doctors have diagnosed her with the potentially life-threatening condition of preeclampsia and upgraded her status to critical saying she requires an emergency C-section in Australia as soon as this week. The Nauru medical centre does not have the staff or equipment to perform the high risk delivery.
