A Nigerian lady who got pregnant for the first time in 19 years, but rejected CS (caesarean section) because she wanted to give birth naturally, reportedly died alongside her twins during child birth.
Twitter user @deedeeposh who shared the story, revealed how sorry she was for the husband of her 44-year-old aunt who has been patient all these years. She wrote;
Sometimes if we Nigerians can just listen to our doctors advice, more lives will be saved. I lost my aunty two days ago to childbirth. Married for 19 years and finally got pregnant with twins at 44 years old.
She wanted to give birth naturally & the doctor said she was too old & advised against it since it was her first time giving birth. She refused CS & died in the process. The twins died too. I feel so bad for her husband because that man was patient. Can’t imagine how he’s feelin
This is coming barely few months after a pregnant woman lost her life, after her husband who is a Jehovah Witness refused medical opinions by doctors to save her life.
The pregnant lady was short of blood and the medical practitioners advised that she had blood transfusion but her husband bluntly refused this, claiming it was against the doctrine of his church to engage in such medical operations.
A doctor was disgusted by her husband’s refusal and decided to transfuse blood by force but he couldn’t because her husband threatened to take him up in court if he does. Eventually, the woman and her unborn child died and the husband will have to live with that guilt for the rest of his life, that he had the chance to save her and he didn’t.
The story which was shared on social media by an eyewitness, got several condemnation. Many called for the arrest of the man who they said chose church doctrine, over the life of his wife.
