"I was rejected by 2 hospitals (I had registered in one of them) even though labour 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."
Elsie said she was eventually admitted to a private hospital in Victoria Island around midnight and that was where they found out she had a cord prolapse after her water broke.
"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," she wrote.

"She's indeed a miracle. I also had cord prolapse with my baby (first time hearing it too). Scariest labor I'd had. The entire nurses were in full panic mode before Dr came in. Cos they were only prepared for normal birth. With several hands sticking inside my vjay at different intervals to keep the cords in before the CS. Like so scary I just thank God for the miracle."
