This beautiful lady from Imo State died during child birth at the Medical Art Center in Lagos last week Friday due to doctors negligence.
Before her untimely death Chiamaka Glory was happily married to Lagos-based Portuguese millionaire Arlindo de Freitas.
On Friday at 41 weeks of pregnancy, Chimaka delivered a baby boy around 8:30am but died of complications few hours later.
Her husband is now blaming Doctors at the hospital located on Mobolaji Anthony Away in Onigbongbo area of Lagos for her death.
Here is what the 60-year-old widower told a media house in Lagos
See more photos of Chiamaka and her hubby below
All these wealthy Oyinbo men wey get wife for their country always use money to entice our girls (24 to 60 that age difference is wide… Na money matter).
On a more serious note, Arlindo loved Chimaka like crazy.
It is so sad that death snatched her away at childbirth.
May her beautiful soul rest in the bosom of her creator.

The prevalence of unprofessional medical practitioners in nigeria is really a major worry for many. From what the widower explained above,one can rightly conclude that this woman was murdered in that hospital as a result of incompetency, inept, unprofessionalism on the part of the surgeon and lack of good medical instruments to take care of the patient. This is a dangerous trend that has been observed in many of our private medical institution in the country. Hence, the government need to step in and start searching for any unlicensed hospital or any privately owned hospital that lack the necessary equipments as well as qualified medical doctors and liquidate such institution so as to prevent the continuous waste of human lives.

It is very unfortunate that this lady lost her life due to the incompetency of the medical doctors. Are there no laws to regulate hospitals in Nigeria either privately owned or not? Most of these privately owned hospitals do their hiring based on “who you know”, nepotism, tribalism, and to an extent, religious belief. These hospitals don’t have necessary tools to perform much needed tasks. Don’t they have ultrasonic tools as the husband suggested? he himself being in medical school before relocating to Nigeria? Are there no requirements in Nigeria for doctors to be specialized before practicing? Those doctors at that hospital are incompetent and grossly arrogant. The husband should sue them.

Honestly I was carried away by merely looking at the pictures of this sweet couple and I made my comment without reading through. But after taking my time to read it,I discovered that it was a different story entirely. So sad this lady’s life was cut short as a result of unprofessionalism on the part of those doctors.

That guy should have taken his wife to Portugal for child delievery if he truly cares for her because nothing is dependable in Nigeria. Our School is not dependable, our health care system is not dependable, Doctors are not well paid, our Road system is worst even compare to other Africans Countries.
The morons handling the affairs of this Country care less. Their interest is to steal money and spend it carelessly. They never for once thought that medical house like this needs money for better healthcare delivery.

The True Facts about the Treatment and Management of Chiamaka De Freitas at MART Medicare
It is with heavy hearts that the management of the MART Group empathize with the husband, family and friends of Chiamaka De Freitas over this unfortunate and tragic loss of their daughter, mother and wife approximately 48 hours after a C-Section surgery. In 4 years of existence this is the first ever mortality case experienced by the MART Medicare.
As a maternity unit with zero tolerance for maternal morbidity, mortality and perinatal mortality, we put in place that all our patient’s care are consultant led. Two consultants Ob/Gyn are always in attendance for surgeries, including consultant anesthetist, pediatrician and world class perioperative nurses for any surgery.
Chiamaka was so precious to us that her history dates back to when she was trying to conceive 3 years ago and successfully underwent IVF at Medical Art Center, she conceived and continued her antenatal care with us.
When Chiamaka didn’t show up for her regular antenatal classes at 37 weeks in the hospital, the consultants were concerned. They contacted her at week 39, at this time she told them that she was out of town and will attend when she gets back. When she presented herself at 41 weeks, the doctors had to carry out another assessment. After further evaluations it was discovered that there was a very low volume of amniotic fluid left for baby’s survival. It is at this point they informed her husband that the baby will have to be delivered by caesarean section, but he was hell bent on his wife having a normal vaginal delivery. He insisted on his wife having induction of labour despite the above facts. Mr. De Freitas was counseled and persuaded to see reasons why a C-section was a necessity instead of vaginal delivery which would have been very RISKY if not IMPOSSIBLE. He finally yielded and allowed the Medicare surgeons operate on her after signing a written consent which explicitly stated that other additional procedures may be necessary and he was present at the surgery.
During the operation it was discovered that the umbilical cord was tightly wrapped round the baby boy’s neck TWICE. This is usually an ominous sign. But for the expert skill displayed by the medical team the baby could have been ‘still born’.
The delivery was a success even though the baby came out wrinkled, pale and one arm white from short of blood supply and stress in the womb.
It is standard practice at MART Medicare that before any patient goes in for surgery, they will NOT have anything to eat or drink (Nil per oral) 12 hours prior to the surgery. This means the patient fasts for 12hours before and 12hours after any surgery. Thereafter, patients can have sips of water bit by bit with close observation after bowel movement has been observed. 18 hours post-surgery, the patient walked from the recovery room to her private room in high spirit and communicating well with her husband and other family members.
It must be noted that Mr. De Frietas requested to be left alone with his wife to “enjoy the moment of joy” for a period of time. It struck some of the medical staff as weird that Mr. De Freitas was offering his young wife “Jack Daniels and Coca” during this traumatic period as he kept insisting that the medical team leave her private room.
During a routine patient checkup, the husband was found massaging her abdomen which is contraindicated for a patient that just had surgery. Approximately 36hrs after the baby was born, one of our doctors found the patient to be pale and in some measure of pain. The consultants managed the pain duly.
Routine blood tests were done and results confirmed that her blood levels were low. With the consent of her husband, Chiamaka was immediately transfused with blood (2 pints initially, and a further 2 pints of blood and 2 pints of fresh frozen plasma made available as soon as it was required).
Based on her clinical state, our experienced consultants thought it prudent to go back in to explore the possibility of any internal bleeding, so they performed a sub umbilical midline incision for a proper exploration. No active bleeding was found neither in the abdomen nor in the pelvis and the uterus was well contracted, although, a concealed haematoma was found behind the bladder.When surgeons encounter this type of blood clot, the global medical standard operating procedure is to adopt a conservative management approach by not touching the blood clot and treat the patient with blood transfusion ONLY. Mr. De Freitas at this time seemed more concerned about the scars that will form on his wife than in the life saving work the consultants were doing. She came out of the second surgery very alert and was conversing with her husband and he offered her his support and comfort.
Over 8 hours after the exploratory surgery and 48hrs after she delivered her bouncing baby boy, Chiamaka passed on despite all our best efforts. The loss of this 24-year-old wife, mother and daughter is painful to us at Mart Medicare. Observing due diligence, it was suggested to Mr. De Freitas that he could carry out the autopsy at a hospital of his choice and he chose a government hospital in Lagos. The autopsy also confirmed our original findings at the second surgery of ‘concealed heamatoma’ behind the bladder.
Mart Medicare is a Gold Standard medical organization, this means that we don’t just meet the “benchmark” we surpass it. All our medical staff have been extensively trained both home and abroad. Mart Medicare is the one of the few hospital where you will always have 2 consultant surgeons in attendance during any given procedure.
MART Medicare has successfully birthed quite a number of 26 weeks old premature babies of 800gms and with our highly skilled expertise and modern equipment. We have delivered sets of quintuplet, quadruplet, triplet, twin and singletons. All this, with glowing praise and no single mishap.

Chaii….Ama my dear cousin, I now understand cos am also a midwife. MART medicare u did ur best indeed, its only God that knows why it happened this soon. Rest in peace my dear.
March 31, 2017 at 8:01 PM
@Esther as midwife if after reading this above message and concluded that Mart Medicare tried that best that simply means you are not a professional in your midwife work. It was in the Hospital that the said the husband was massaging her and trying or gave her Jack Daniel and Cocoa Cola, the had the first operation without observing they did not know that she need more blood because they said that when her baby was delivered one of the hand was white because short of blood and, routine blood test were done.. before they discover that is was short of blood and they gave her to pint..after that they continue giving her pain relieve..before the second operation. A woman that just had an operation and the husband asked the nurses to live the room for him and they did and for how long? to an extend that the husband started messaging her…What I saw here is that..
there is a mistake from the hospital and the Doctor too because after surgery like that its the duty of the doctor and the nurses that suppose to give her in close check..every 15 minutes even when she is sleeping.. They are trying to put the issue on the husband head..and before going into an operation its the duty of the doctor to know if you each something or not…sometimes they will ask the patient to remain in the hospital for a close watch before the operation. It pains me because this girl dead could have been avoided if the doctor and the Nurses keep a close watch on their patient that just had a c section surgery. RIP to the Death.

Dear Ray , Mart Center instead of trying thru lies to put the blame on me should finally recognize that the post mortem documented an hemorrhagic shock, in medical language hypoglycemic shock and that her.bladder was cut in the real wall in a length of 4cm. I don’t drink I don’t smoke and my wife has never tasted such drinks. They Will have soon the.possibility to bring evidence of whY they say against the blood tests declaring no residuals nor existence of any kind of alcohol join blood.
