- A Nigerian man has shared how a pregnant family member almost lost her baby on Christmas day

In most African society, giving birth in the natural way is often considered a thing of pride and this is one of the reasons many women insist on this method of delivery, even when it puts their health at risk.
This was the case for a Nigerian woman who almost lost her baby after she insisted on putting to bed in the natural way. According to @obynofranc who shared the story, she went to a church to deliver when she was in labour, instead of going to a hospital.
However, she was unable to put to bed and was eventually rushed to the hospital where she gave birth to the child via a cesarean operation. According to the story, the baby at this point, was on the verge of dying.

He wrote:"Religion can make people daft. My family member who gave birth on Christmas day almost had her baby died because of her church. Her first child was through C.S and because she wanted to deliver the second one naturally, she went to a church the day she was due to labour."
"This is sick. It was on Christmas eve and finally, when she couldn't deliver, they transferred her to a hospital where they did C.S to her and the baby came out. It was at the point of death for the baby. The child had to be revived with oxygen and currently on medicine. Just because she wanted to give testimony in church. Crass behaviour."
