Emergency room Series : Stop Taking Chances

This story might upset you...




Life is all about choices. You can choose to live or you choose to die.

 In fact you can choose to kill yourself. Funny enough, we have some degree of power over how good we want our lives to be. 


I'm quite sad typing this. I've been sitting here in a neonatal resuscitation room for a few hours watching a new born baby on oxygen, gasping, with a poor oxygen saturation, trying to hold on to life and not die.


Nursing makes you strong hearted and could make you lose feelings of sympathy. In fact we have been trained never to sympathize but to empathize with people when sick or in distress. I can't be crying everytime I lose a patient.

 I've seen so many people die right before me, I've helped to pack dead people several times, infact, it's a nursing and medical procedure called 'last office'. So here I am, with a straight face, watching this baby gasp on oxygen using all facial muscles to breath and deep down I'm sad and broken. 


 Other doctors are here, waiting patiently having done everything humanly and medically necessary , you know why? Because the baby can stop breathing and we have to commence CPR which most times in neonates, fails. I believe in miracles, I hope the baby survives.


The doctors doubt the baby would, even if the baby does, there could be significant brain damage due to lack of oxygen for a long time and the baby would most likely be mentally retarded for life. Current oxygen level: 47%. 


Now, to the baby's story. The mother is still in the ER theatre recovery room. 

The mother had been told all through pregnancy to opt for Caesarean section because she had fibroid too but she declined(so I heard). She had been in labour for about 5 hours somewhere else before presenting at the hospital, accepting to have a CS and expecting a miracle. An emergency CS had to be done over the night. She's also on oxygen and battling to live too. The baby came out with a score of 2 and severe birth asphyxia. 

 Current oxygen level now:42%.

We are now using pressurized oxygen. The father is seen panicking and shouting outside the cubicle that the child must not die because the first pregnancy also died and this is the second. 

What is wrong with people this days? Why do people take chances anyhow? What is wrong with you having a CS for peace sakes? Is it really about the money? Does life have a money value? Why do people wait for things to get critical? 


Anyways, Current oxygen is 33%.

 We are all sweating profusely because the room is made in such a way that ventilation from outside isn't allowed to enter. I'm feeling faint. I'm feeling streaks of sweat rolling down my body. We wait patiently.

 The baby is now jerking. Okay, got to go.

 We have a flat pulse.

The Baby Is Gone!



*OMG OMG OMG...If you read this and still risk your life and child thinking having CS is for women who are not 'Hebrew'.you better think again and spread the word....STOP TAKING CHANCES!!!

  1. Oohh noo! What is wrong with CS for Christ's sake! Why not do the procedure and save yourself and the baby. With the outcome if the baby survives, Let the baby go back to heaven than live a life of sorrow and pain. 😢

    1. Please women, there is nothing wrong with cs. The meaning of delivering like Hebrew women is when you and your baby come out alive be it cs or virginal birth. Pleeeease.

  5. RIP to the baby, but this was a preventable death.
    Reading through, I was hoping the baby didn't make it Apgar score of 2, oxygen saturation level, too low, the complications Would have been crazy, to the father screaming, Would he stay when his child has CP?
    I don't know how it is done, but they need proper counseling, and the funny thing is even graduates, educated people still have this mundane way of thinking.
    To the nurse, I know how you feel, I used to practice in Nigeria, and during my history taking, I get annoyed and sad, when I see people walk into their own medical mess.
    I hope people listen, this message needs to be taken to religious houses too, as Nigerians respect pastors and imams, more than health care professionals.
    Keep the good work up!
    Nigerians, the most important thing at the end of the day,is that mother and child are doing fine!

    1. No o, it must be done like the hebrew woman in the bible.

      Someone somewhere right now is still going against doctor's advise because they want to give birth like the Hebrew woman. Women should receive sense in marriage, if you die like a chicken , the man will remarry and that wife will likely neglect or maltreat your kids.

      Another issue you need to address my dear nurse is birthing so many children even against doctors advise, looking for a particular sex etc.

      A neighbour of mine died on the 6th child , she comes for a tribe where they see you as childless except you birth a male child.

  9. Foolish spirituality. Hebrew women nonsense as if giving birth vaginally is the visa to heaven. The real things Christ asked us to do we won’t do. Love your neighbour as yourself mba, instead wickedness, lying, stealing, fornication, idolatry abound. Twisted priorities.

    2. Do you know that the Hebrew women strength was a lie God directed the midwives to tell the Egyptians whenever they come asking how the Israel women did it?
      Please read your Bible properly Nigerians and don't be fooled!

  10. Na wa oo
    can't even fathom wat the father is going through not to mention the mother.
    please CS is no disease. You would still feel pain like normal vagina birth pain while having contraction and the pushing.
    it saves you from having tears in the vagina.
    lastly you would still bled from the vagina just like a normal birth would .
    With these few points please save a life and a pregnant woman's life. let's show support when you visit a just delivered woman and stop the "Na Cs she use born" stigma.

    OAP switty

  11. I don't know why people believe that CS is wrong. CS is not evil. It is a skill given by God to man. Just like medicines. God knew that some women may not be able to have natural birth. So He gave man the skill to develop CS. Just like He gave them wisdom on artificial insemination. Why people do this to themselves I don't know. See there is a great world of difference between being religious and being spiritual. See I don't even know what to say again.

  12. Ignorance is a disease. I think churches and mosques in Nigeria should start educating their followers about the importance of CS in situations like this.Nigerians listen more to their clergyman/woman than doctors.

  15. Let's even debunk this Hebrew Women myth now. Read the story well. The Hebrew Women delivered like everyone else. The Egyptian midwives only lied to pharoah that the Hebrew Women had it easy and did not need midwivery because they didn't want to have a hand in killing innocent Israelite male children as Pharaoh asked them to do.

  16. I tell ladies that for you to carry your pregnancy to full term and deliver safely whether C-section or Virgina birt we are all Hebrew women, I opted for C-section at 6months because I had multiple uterine fibroid and high blood pressure I picked the date I gave birth sef RIP to the little one and may God comfort the parents

    1. That is the reality. I don't subscribe to having a csection when there is no need for it but if your situation calls for surgery , then put it in God's feet and go for a csection.

      I was clearly told that my uterus could rupture which could lead to bleeding if i tried vaginal birth so at 39 weeks I went to hospital and had a csection. I thank God it went well.

  17. Like they don't perform cs in Israel. Stories like this Just make me sad. When I had my first baby,someone actually asked me if it was safe delivery or cs??????? The look I gave to her ehh

    1. Even hebrew women of today undergo CS when necessary.

  18. Lol at Hebrew. The Bible does not tell how many children died to Hebrew women because cs was not available in that time. How can anyone in 2018 take such a chance on their life and that of their unborn child/ren because of a culture that existed 7000 yrs ago, a culture they can't even trace their roots to, a complete different set of ppl whose religion they chose to adopt, how does that make any sense? When religion has taken all sense out of your head.

    If your doctor has warned you that you have certain complications and it is best to use alternative means then why do you feel like you should go against that. This woman had fibroids, she is even lucky to have a pregnancy come full term, she already lost the first pregnancy and still chose to play Russian roulette with the life of her unborn child? So nobody in her circle was available to sit and talk sense into her. They had a healthy child to begin with and because of stubbornness they caused the child's death, and they are not even sure if they will get another chance.

    RIP little one, speedy recovery to the mother. Hope she heals and learn lesson from this one.

  20. If you go against medical advise and loose a child because of it you should be charged with murder. I think that's the only solution to this problem.

    Rest in Peace little one.

  22. So sad. Was rushing to read to the end and see that the baby finally survived but no. RIP little one.

    Illiteracy is a full blown disease eating deep into the fabrics of our society. Some of these expectant mother's have:
    Undergone appendicitis operation
    Taken out fibroid growths
    Removed gall bladder stone
    Had an abortion

    Then they talk of 'vaginal birth'. Let them wake up to advancement in medicine, 80% of our relations who didn't meet their mother's back in the days lost them during childbirth ir complications thereafter. Ask your parents and relations to tell you more.

    You follow Doctor's advice. You live healthier. Then longer.

  26. Well Stella it's the church that causes this most times since they have taken over the medical profession with fake miracles. I have faith but will never endanger myself now to talk of my unborn child,

  27. Really sad how people commit suicide by their own stupidity and wrong advice. I had preterm labour in my first pregnancy,after a while emergency cs was done. I nearly lost my child due to the rigorous labour. It thought me a big lesson because it would ve been more painful losing him after all. Second one came placenta previa,i spotted from 5th week to 13th week,with the help of my good doctor i didnt lose the preg. Towards the end of the pregnancy the placenta moved to normal position. But God in heaven know i dont want a story that touch the bombom😜, doctor opened my file one of my antinatal visit and make a comment that this baby is expensive baby because of the treatments so far. That he will suggest i go for elective, i didnt give him space to finish. Please doctor give me the date was my response and voila we choosed a date. To the matter on the ground, i went to church next sunday and told my pastors wife the arrangement, she wasnt happy about it. That i havr a small faith, Adeboyes wife had series of cs and later had a vaginal birth. I told her, is alright i will give it a try. In my mind i said 'mummy my ogas name is .........not adeboye abeg' i didnt discussed that with her again. On the D-day immediately i came out of the theatre i called her. she came and met me and my baby strong and fine. Abeg ejikwanu sense aka this uka. women should stop wasting their lives in the name of women of hebrew. If your life is useless,please spare that innocent soul. Bring him/her out in peace later u can use cement drink tea and die alone.mtchewwwww

  28. That's how I went to church today during testimony time,one woman was busy thanking God that she didn't have her baby via surgery as this is her covenant with God after one week of labor.i was so pissed with that her testimony that I didn't know when I went to sit outside till she finished.my thoughts were what if she loses her life?one week in labor?

    1. Most likely Braxton Hicks...lol

      The worst are those testimonies. Thank God my church stopped all that! Making others feel like they don’t have faith or they aren’t good Christians

    2. Don't mind them. Is it that they dont know?...that successful birth doesn't end with just pushing baby out after several hours...neurophysiological development may also be negatively affected by stressful delivery.

  29. What the FUCK!!!
    I don't give a damn about giving birth naturally.
    I was in labour for hours and doctor noticed the baby would advance and then retreat, he suggested a cs,which i definitely agreed to. I was later told that the umbilical cord was around my baby's neck.Which was why he could not come out of my birth canal.His face was so swollen when he was shown to me,while in the theater.
    I shudder to think what might have gone wrong,if we had delayed any further.
    I thank God that he's a very active,jovial and bright boy.
    And i've determined that my next pregnancy is a CS,i'll just pick a date of my choice.
    I no fit shout.
