Witnessing women’s challenges due to inadequate healthcare, she saw young women losing their lives during childbirth, girls becoming mothers when it wasn’t their choice, and families struggling with fertility and pregnancy loss. Older women, too, often neglected their healthcare needs. These experiences drove Dr. Ceesay’s passion for obstetrics and gynecology.
