SAVED BY THE KNIFE – …then my baby’s heartbeat dropped

“The only regret any mother lives with is one in which she had a choice but refused to use it. Everyone may forget it but she wouldn’t, not even in a hurry.” ~ Phebe (Reju) Olaniran

I bless God I didn’t loose my baby when my husband and a doctor friend stands against birthing through CS, believing and encouraging me that I can do it myself, whereas it’s my first child.

That day, Tuesday to be precise, I had been in labour since 3pm and by that time I was at 5cm. The doctor told us what he feels is head and one of the hand, I was given injection to see if the baby’s position will change. The next news was that my baby’s heartbeat has dropped to 85, meaning my baby is striving and tired so am I too.

The doctor said, “I don’t think you need this baby. Tell your husband to agree to operation.” I am happy we did and I am carrying my 4month boy.

Thanks for this innovation.
