Nigerian Doctor, Odogwu’s Encounter With A Pregnant Woman Who Blatantly Refused CS Casts A Major Spotlight On How Religion May Be Fueling Maternal And Infant Mortality

A medical doctor has narrated his desperate attempt to save a woman and her baby after she blatantly refused to undergo Caesarian Section because her church said it’s demonic.

The doctor with the twitter name Sports Dokita ( Odogwu) explained that the woman was in labour for two days but rejected delivery through CS.

According to the concerned doctor, the woman was then transferred to her church where they kept praying for her until she was almost dead. As a result, she was then transferred back to the hospital where a CS was eventually done.

Before the operation, the medical expert said he conducted an examination on the woman and discovered that she had ‘Cephalon Pelvic Disproportion’ meaning the baby’s head is bigger than the woman’s pelvis and no amount of prayers or anointing oil could have helped the woman deliver the baby without the help of doctors.

The baby was “almost dead” when it was brought out, the doctor said. But the nurse on duty refused to give up on the innocent baby and kept trying every means to resuscitate the baby. Interestingly, the baby eventually survived.

”She was told delivery by C/S was demonic so when she laboured for 2 days no way, they took her to the church! She was closed to giving up when they rushed her to the hospital and that was the moment I was about leaving to watch Chelsea match… “HERE WE GO AGAIN!”

Upon examination, I found out she was having “Cephalo Pelvic Disproportion” i.e “CPD” meaning the baby’s head is bigger than the woman’s pelvis and there is no prayer or anointing oil that would get that baby out!!! Another thing I noticed was the unborn child’s heartbeat…

The normal unborn babies heart is around 120-160 beats in every minute and whenever it’s above 160 beats per minute…the baby is in trouble! We call it “FETAL DISTRESS” I checked twice and was getting 192beats per minute, we had to operate on her immediately but omoh…no cash

No money No deposit Not a single item was brought to the hospital…a specialist private hospital!!! I heard already placed her on oxygen to help the child while we still see if they could drop anything atleast because she needed an urgent Ceasarian Section!…that demonic act!

Saving that baby was 50-50 and I really didn’t want to celebrate my Christmas with bad news, at a point, the manager said let’s refer as they were not forthcoming… But after a while they brought 1/10 of their deposit and I leveraged on that…we entered the theater…

We opened up immediately and what we saw was an “almost” dead baby, my spirit was down but thank God for the nurse on duty… She started resuscitation, my eyes were clearly on them even as we worked on closing the woman up to avoid bleeding… “STAFF HOWFAR, I ASKED AGAIN”

“Chief nothing she replied” and my spirit sank, omoh I started praying and the nurse didn’t even give up!!! For more than 30minutes, she went from suctioning to everything in the book…even mouth to mouth with oxygen in the babies nose… Still nothing and yet she continued!

But we noticed that the babies color started changing from dark purple that showed no oxygen in her body to pink that showed oxygen was coming back… 45minutes later….THE BABY GAVE A LOUD CRY!!! And that was her “Welcome Back To Life!!!” and immediately I started singing…

“Omewo ya (He has done it) Jehovah Jireh Omewo ya (My provider has done it) Alpha n’ Omega Omewo ya (Alpha and Omega has done it) Omere ya n’oge ya (He did it in His own time)” Those that could sing joined, the others just danced along and baby and mother are doing perfect!!!

After the surgery, I bought everyone drinks and hugged that nurse that didn’t give up “STAFF GOD BLESS YOU!” They are yet to pay another dime but its well, God has done it…Again! My “Duduke’s” on the TL rebuke every pastor that tells you C/S is demonic, they want to kill you!

C/S doesn’t make you less a woman C/S doesn’t mean you’re lazy to push C/S doesn’t mean you’re not a Hebrew woman The most important thing is childbirth is “MOTHER AND CHILD SAFE!!!” If it’s vaginal delivery, good If it’s C/S very very good

Finally there shouldn’t be any animosity amongst nurses and doctors, we are both partners in the health care business A good nurse makes work easier for the doctor and together we make the work smooth and sweet I LOVE NURSES!!! God Bless All Of You.”
