“My Little Miracle…..
So let me share my testimony with you
So on the day i put to birth, i was rejected by 2 hospitals(i had registered in one of them ) even though labour had started and my contractions were happening every 2minutes, their reason was that I hadn’t done my antenatal with them so they didn’t want to take me in case there was an emergency.
So after 40mins of driving back and forth, i was eventually admitted to Reddington Hospital in VI, i can only thank God it was midnight so there was no traffic, so while in the labour room, my water broke and i had a cord Prolapse…. (Never heard of it until that day)
So a Cord Prolapse is when the cord comes out of the uterus before the baby, when this happens, it can result in a loss of oxygen to the baby, and may even result in a stillbirth.
