The child was born on Christmas Day last year.

The baby's mother, Petra Pienaar, is in the midst of trauma.

In December of last year, she gave birth to a baby boy on Christmas Day.

Her joy was short-lived, as she was soon informed by medical staff at Katutura State Hospital that her son was born with his umbilical cord around his neck, restricting his blood flow.
