How insisting on vaginal delivery could deform your children
According to a post from filmmaker, Ugezu J Ugezu, there are certain things women do at childbirth to the detriment of their babies.
The movie actor cum producer obviously shared a post from a nurse who works in UBTH.
It reads: ” It breaks my heart each time I see little children who are brought to our neurology clinic here in UBTH because of speech difficulties, mental retardation, drooling of saliva, epilepsy and all other forms of seizures they are suffering because their parents, mothers especially, insisted on vaginal delivery when it was obvious it would not happen.
Every mother wants to put to bed like the legendary ‘Hebrew women’, but let me tell you, there’s no shame in putting to bed via caesarean delivery (commonly called CS or operation). As a matter of fact, there are women – some of who could even be reading this post – who as it stands right now, even though they are not yet married, will never be delivered of any baby vaginally. It must be CS! Many have contracted pelvis (pelvis with smaller than expected diameters) or inadequate pelvis.
For fear of CS, some enroll in maternity homes with little or no knowledge of active management of labour (so you can save money) and then end up having a child who will be an OLODO for life due to prolonged labour and its sequelae.
The child I clerked yesterday was so bad that he was in KG 1 even though he was 8 YEARS OLD. Yet he kept coming last in his class in the same KG 1. He’d been having seizures since birth.
The mother laboured for 3 days! Three frigging days! She didn’t want CS because she’s a ‘Hebrew woman’ and then following obstructed labour, baby had 3+ caput (swelling of the scalp) and extensive moulding of 3+ (inseparable overlap of the skull bones). The boy’s head was so small that his occipitofrontal circumference (head size) was 43cm (as against 54-58cm). This means that his head size at 8 years was that of a 5- to 6-month-old child.
The brain stops developing when a child becomes 7 years old. That’s when it attains adult size!
This boy didn’t even cry after birth, later developed what doctors call hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy (HIE), a severe complication because the brain was starved of enough oxygen and blood as the head squeezed through the vagina during the prolonged labour.
The mother totally DAMAGED her son during labour and now the young man is paying for a sin he didn’t commit. ~ Caséy Amaefule ©”.
