A HEAVILY pregnant woman, who is now putting up at a flood relief centre in Kuala Selangor, said she was prepared to give birth there, Berita Harian reported.
“I am anxious about it. But what can I do? My house is flooded, so it is safer here,” said Yusrita Yusuf, 37, who is due to give birth to her third child next month.
She lives in Kampung Parit Mahang where some houses are still inundated with water. Several other residents had returned to clean their homes after the floods, which hit last Wednesday.
Yusrita said she forgot to gather her pregnancy supplies in her haste to leave the house when the water began to rise.
“I could only grab some basic necessities and clothes for my husband and two children,” she said.
