After almost losing hope Vaishali and her husband were finally able to get pregnant. At a prenatal screening the family was shocked to find out that their baby daughter would be born with a cleft lip. Some of Vaishali’s family then gave her the option of terminating the pregnancy or risk being shunned from the family because they wanted nothing to do with her after the baby was born. .
Thankfully, Vaishali and her husband didn’t listen to their family and decided to have their miracle child. After their daughter was born, the couple was uncertain that any surgeon would be able to fix her cleft lip. Luckily, veteran Smile Train partner surgeon Dr. Mahesh Prabhu was there to tell them about Smile Train sponsored cleft surgery. .
Six months after Aasmi was born, she successfully underwent cleft lip surgery at the state-of-the-art Western India Institue of Neurosciences Hospital in Kolhapur. “I couldn’t even recognize my girl—she looked so beautiful! All of the people who turned their backs on Aasmi, can’t get enough of her now—her acceptance is all due to Smile Train and Dr. Prabhu…” said Vaaishali.
