(CNN) — What a week it’s been for Mariam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman who initially faced a death sentence after refusing to renounce her faith.
She thought she was finally free Monday after a higher court ordered her release. A day later, she was back in police custody.
Now she faces a new charge, accused of falsifying travel documents, and has taken refuge in a safe house in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, amid concerns for her security.
In a phone interview with CNN, Ibrahim spoke of the ordeal of giving birth while in prison, her fears for her family and how she is facing a future full of unknowns.
Asked how she felt in prison, refused access to a hospital as the birth of her child neared, Ibrahim said, “I was only thinking about my children and how I was going to give birth. I was mostly scared of giving birth in prison.”
