Lady accuses hospitals of turning C-Section to a profit making venture, gets lambasted.

A lady on Twitter that goes by the name Lolo Cynthia has accused medical doctors and hospitals of deliberately carrying out Cesarean section on women for the purpose of making more money. She said she got this information from local market women who told her they prefer visiting traditional birth attendants (TBAs) because they found out that the general and private hospitals around them deliberately carryout operation on them to deliver their babies so as to make money.

Contrary to the thumps up she expected, many Twitter users lambasted her for generalizing from questionable sources. Others accused her of been a “Hebrew Women Crusader” and a contributor for Nigeria’s maternal mortality records.

Why are hospitals making pregnant women give birth through CS even when they don’t need it?? Speaking to local women at Ikorodu and I keep hearing that many of them are going to traditional birth attendants because the Government hospitals keep saying they need CS.

It’s more expensive and the women complain that they don’t even wait for them to have contractions… It’s straight to CS. This costs 100k plus and many cannot afford it!! I have heard of this in the private hospitals as well.. Is this a way to extort money from people?

X-rays on a pregnant woman? X-ray to view the cervix? Huh *scratching my head * I wish a radiologist can tell me how safe it is to expose a foetus to x-rays to view the “cervix” …I want to believe dat it was the “pelvis” he was checking on the x-ray oh!
Because I am wondering why not use an ultrasound to see the cervix? Anyway, what do I know I’m just a pharmacist

There is NOTHING, I repeat NOTHING EXTRA, that a doctor in a GOVERNMENT hospital stand to gain from recommending an unnecessary Caesarean Section for women who do not need it.
If this was a private practice setting, you could argue that they want money for their pockets, but not in a government hospital. Let him/her do 15 Caesarean Sections in a day, the take home is still the same at the end of the month.

This your tweet is already responsible for the death of many mothers and babies. I hope your conscience will let you be. Rushing to misinform the public when you are totally ill informed on an issue is just low. How do you know they don’t need it? Keep adding to the problem

Why not try to get more information on this before tweeting? Tweets like this are reasons the mortality rate for mothers and new born infants will fail to reduce.

You should be ashamed and feel responsible for the death of any woman that may likely take this misconception of yours serious to refuse accessing the care she needs to survive. Doctors are not butchers, they are human care givers who are trained to save lives not torture them.

Listen, you witch. That’s how our baby died. An idiot consultant at a well-known general hospital decided no CS when it was VERY CLEAR, that was what was needed. At 42 weeks, the poor baby died in the womb. The fool started begging. I don’t trust doctors today because of it. “Hebrew Women Crusedar”.

Replying to@Lolo_cy
One woman is told that she cannot try vaginal delivery for certain reasons, she goes home to tell her friend but doesn’t tell her the reason. Her friend out of fear and lack of knowledge decides to visit the TBA… this is the trend. It has nothing to do with the doctor, period!

FUFU BABE@louisaagunbiade
What do they know? How can they say that they don’t need it ?? Are they doctors?? Do they know what the doctors have seen ?? I actually blame doctors sometimes cause they don’t take time to explain, these women need the explanations even if it’s to speak pidgin or local dialect.

HealthWatchDog@radiocranberry
Replying to@Lolo_cy
Doctors are professionals. All cases I have witnessed doctors suggest a CS were all complicated cases. I have also seen situations where women are told they would need a CS but they get up and leave the hospital, go somewhere else and die/live. No doctor “makes you” do a CS.

Leo pantro@Leopantro
Replying to@Lolo_cy
I recall a woman who had a difficult labour ( baby was transverse), doctors suggested CS, she was of the “not my portion” crew. Called pastors who prayed & blasted for 12hrs. Had to be rushed to theatre when she fainted. Husband was called in to see baby when they opened up.

Most private practice are indeed abusing it for profit...

They no longer waste much of their time on natural birthing, its straight up CS 250k-300k.

The same thing happened with my daughter here. ...https://www.nairaland.com/5313377/babys-transformation#80481727

I have said this before, and I repeat it again,

Everyone is getting scammed at any given time whether you realize it or not.
And unfortunately, even when you do realize you are being scammed, it is too late.

This is how the misinform the public.

Let me share my experience as a doctor to help enlighten women here

A patient of mine with twin gestation and the leading twing was breech (coming out with the buttocks) was adivce for csection.

She refused. She said she can never have her first delivery through operation.

When labor started, she visited traditional birth attendants and boom after delivery of the feet and both and the hands, the head got stucked grin

Then tried everything possible for another 24 hours and yet the head could not come out.

Thereafter she came back to the hospital and I did a csection for her. The head was decapitated and the second twin was already dead.

So, u see, doctors request for surgery not only because u cannot pull through but when they feel there is risk of losing the baby (something called fetal distress)

I feel sorry for those who choose to listen to market women talk.

Learnt something already. While your wife is pregnant, you can let her go for cervix scan to see if her cervix is okay to birth virginally. If yes. Then wait for that doctor that will say she can't birth virginally. Okay oooo!

Same thing now happening in Algeria, doctors don't want to stress themselves anymore, every little thing they will recommend CS.
I also learnt frequent CS reduces the number of Children a woman can give birth to naturally in her life time.

True! Not only government hospitals, it's common at private hospitals than the former.
They put fear in you and tell you why your wife won't have normal birth. They show you the patients BP and other strange results and tell you its impossible, meanwhile mothers head to other hospitals and give birth normal. I won't name the hospital but its located at Ikotun area.

What the lady said is the simple truth, in nyanya general hospital Abuja out of 50 women that visit the to give birth 30 of them give birth through CS . There was a case were the woman went to nyanya general hospital after giving birth to 4 of her children the fifth child the hospital insist that CS most be carried out on the woman the husband refuse and the hospital told them to go elsewhere just as they were living the hospital the baby started coming out on his own right in front of the hospital. Nyanya general hospital is guilty of this forced CS
