Ufuoma Ejenobor: It Is Only Ignorant Women Who Reject Doctors Advice To Do C Section

Nollywood actress Ufuoma Ejenobor who recently celebrated her birthday in a chat with Saturday Beats narrated how her children were born by Caesarean section.

The mother of two said only ignorance would make a woman refuse to have a CS simply because she wants to be a strong ‘Hebrew woman’.

Her words:

“Both of my children were born by caesarean section and I still feel very proud of motherhood. My children are my treasure and pride. I don’t think anyone should decide how a child is brought into the world because complications sometimes warrant CS. If everything is good, then the doctor would insist on a normal birth.

“At any point in time, motherhood is motherhood. It makes me laugh when people say that women who have a CS are not strong women. It is amazing how ignorant some people are.

My son, for example, was conceived through in vitro fertilisation and when it was time for delivery, there was a breach, which means that the head of the child was up in the uterus as against it being down, so it was not advisable to push at the time.

“I’m glad that I listened to the doctor because, by the time my son was brought out, he had his placenta around his neck. If I had pushed, I might have strangled him.

I think it is ignorance when someone comes out to say that she is a strong woman so she has to do normal child delivery. Yet, I am patient with people because I got to a point where I was enlightened.

“Most people that say they are Hebrew women speak from what they have been taught by their mothers and grandmothers. They have been told that if they do not have the normal childbirth, then they are not Hebrew women.

These women can be forgiven because the truth is that a mother is always a mother. When it comes to the process of childbirth, you cannot take away the pain that comes with it whether it is by CS or normal delivery; you would feel the pain whether it is before, during or after childbirth.”

“CS is actually a stitch, it is a wound and it takes time to heal but in my case, I was already walking by the second day after giving birth to my son. The labour ward was different from where they kept my son and I could not sleep because I wanted to see him. I was a new mother, the nurses told me to stay put, but I did not listen.

I was crying as I dragged myself on the staircase to see my son. In all of it, I think we should just appreciate mothers because they go through a lot. Even if it is an adoption, a mother is a mother and you cannot take that away from her.”

    Your explanation makes so much sense, even in the normal delivery, the vagina need to cut wider to enable easy passage of the baby and stitch later, that’s where doctor is available…..carrying complete cycle of fetus is not a small thing,and that alone can qualify any woman as a strong woman.

    Yes,I like your explanation.Nigerian men and women believe that those who have CS are weak. My sister in law had both her children through CS,I had my first through normal delivery but my second was CS because the baby was tired and had to be helped as per doctors advice. Mother in law was upset because according to her-” o n yoo ni”. That means I was behaving like a spoit child.

    My dear dont mind them. If you are travelling from Lagos to Abuja, whether you go by flight or road, the most important thing is getting there safe and sound because both are risky. I dont know where any woman has been given an award for ability to tolerate labour pain. Many women have lost their lives u necessarily because of wanting to be hebrew women. You are Nigerians and not hebrews and you will do well to save your life and that of the baby by doing what is necessary to see that happen. CS or otherwise, what is most important is the life of mother and child being saved and not turning childbirth to death sentence

You are blessed to have them all trough IVF my sus . Cuz most people don’t succeed after several attempts
