“Stop demonizing CS” – Doctor advises as lady loses womb and baby after refusing to be operated on due to religious beliefs
A doctor has advised Nigerians to stop demonizing Caesarean section after a woman in labour lost her baby and her womb following refusal to be operated on because her pastor had said she’d deliver like ‘the Hebrew women’.
According to the doctor who goes by the name Penking, the pregnant woman had insisted on delivering the normal way because her pastor had assured her of it.
She had added that in their family, they don’t do CS and had requested to be taken to the church instead.
It was revealed that the lady was later rushed back to the hospital but it was already late as she had lost the child as well as her womb.
Dr Penking wrote:
“She had an obstructed labour. The Doctor on call decided on CS. She said that her pastor told her that she’ll deliver “like the Hebrew women” and besides they don’t use to do CS in her family. She asked to be taken to church. She was later rushed back to the hospital
She had had uterine rupture with total myometrial and serosal disruption. Baby was floating in the peritoneum, dead. Uterus was bleeding like an ocean and could not be repaired . It was removed . The child was her first child. She lost her first child and lost her womb for life.
Stop demonizing CS. It is a
life-saving procedure and nothing is wrong with it.
For all pastors who keep making women lose their children by telling them lies, God will ask you on your dying bed.
CS does not make you less of a woman.
Having CS doesn’t mean you are a weakling
Having CS doesn’t make you inferior
Stop demonizing CS”
