How my husband used my CS money

“Dear Twitter Nigeria, I am appealing to you all for your help to save my life to stay alive to nurse my new born child. I got traditionally married recently and took in. I thought that was the best thing that happened to me, everything was going well until I entered 35th week.
“I suddenly developed shortness of breath, I could barely walk 2secs without being out of breath. Thinking it was one of those symptoms of late pregnancy, I didn’t take it seriously until the 14th of April when I could barely breath, I couldn’t lift my head up.
“I was rushed to a nearby clinic, they couldn’t handle me, so I was taken to my hospital where I was admitted and placed on oxygen. They Drs told my husband we should opt for CS, as I and my unborn child were at risks..my husband said no, that I’d definitely deliver naturally.

“He insisted he had no money for CS, they should work on stabilizing my breathing…so for three days, I was on oxygen and feeling better, seeing that I was responding to treatment, my husband went around and insisted I should be discharged against Drs advice.
“It almost became an issue, I was too weak to argue with him, he insisted on discharge so I was discharged early the next morning. A few hours after we arrive home, the breathing problems started again. I struggled with it, this man went and bought Agbo from one Yoruba woman.
“Told me to drink, it would make my baby turn it’s head for natural delivery, the other Agbo could make my cervix slippery. i was in so much pain that I drank only for the pain to intensify. I struggled so much till about 1am in the morning when I couldn’t take it anymore..
