Elsie Okpochi, wife of comedian and actor Bright Okpocha aka Basketmouth has recounted some of the complications she suffered during childbirth.
According to Elsie, she had a cord prolapse which almost caused her to have a stillbirth.
The mother of three shared this in an Instagram post on Tuesday.
"Let me share my testimony with you.
"So on the day, I put to birth, I was rejected by two hospitals (I had registered in one of them) even though labour had started and my contractions were happening every two minutes..
"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 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.
“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,” she said.
According to Elsie, they welcomed their third child after three miscarriages.
