Elsie, the wife of Nigerian comedian Basketmouth, has described how she was turned down by two hospitals on the night she gave birth.
“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 labor 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,” she wrote.
“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). 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.”
