The rate of maternal death continues to be on a disturbing rise and remains one of Nigeria's fundamental problems faced in the health sector of the country.
A Nigerian woman recently lost her life after giving birth to a set of triplets at a traditional maternity home in Emohua local government area of Rivers state. A Facebook user identified as Okah Chris Obinichi shared the sad news on the platform.
According to the post, the mother of the babies reportedly died of excessive bleeding caused after failing to deliver a placenta. He went on to solicit funds for the father of the babies who is now faced with the sole responsibility of taking care of the babies.
The post reads: "These set of triplets(3 girls) were delivered yesterday, Wednesday June 12, 2019 in a local baby delivering house in Elele Alimini in Emohua LGA of Rivers state and few minutes after the innocent kids arrived, death struck and killed their mother, Mrs Chinyere Amadi as a result of bleeding caused by missing placenta.
"The father of the kids is asking for help from members of the public, NGOs etc to enable him take care of the 1 day old triplet's feeding. The set of triplets have been moved to a clinic Ahoada in Ahoada. If the Lord touches your heart to help the newborn, you can reach them through their father, Mr Emmanuel Amadi on 08033758012 Account no: 3078835817. First Bank. Account Name: Emmanuel Amadi."
