Elsie Okpocha has detailed the labour experience during the birth of her third child.
The wife to ace comedian and actor Bright Okpocha who finally unveiled photos of the 2-month-old on social media revealed that she was rejected by two hospitals on the night she went into labour.
Elsie stayed though she was registered with one of these clinics and contractions were two minutes apart, the hospital said because she didn’t do her antenatal, they didn’t want to take any chances.
The mother of three went on to note that she was finally admitted at Reddington Hospital in V.I and while in labour, her water broke and a condition known as Cord Prolapse where the cord comes out of the uterus before the baby, and can result in a loss of oxygen to the baby, and may even result in a stillbirth.
“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.
But God was gracious, he was kind, he didn’t let the Devil win…. When I saw the Doctor and Nurses Panic, I knew Something was wrong, in that moment of fear, I started to declare life for myself and my baby, thankfully God came through as always
Fortunately the Doctor knew the emergency steps to take to keep my baby alive while they prepared me for an emergency CS, the CS doctor arrived in good time and I had my baby who is well and alive.Thank you Lord.”
