"Today is the saddest day of my life. As a doctor, I have treated so many pregnant women in labor and whenever I am in the delivery room, I always pray to God to bless all the babies' mothers.
The pain women go through in the delivery room is indescribable and that doesn't include the 9 months they spent carrying the baby. They go through a lot just to give birth to a new life.
Today I cried bitterly because I lost a woman. We don't pray for things like this to happen, but
sometimes God may have other plans.
Why is this woman's case so painful? She had been sterile for 14 years! We have tried IVF (in-vitro fertilization) and so many methods known to mankind; the woman has been through a lot.
Finally, she had just gotten pregnant despite having an ovarian cyst and a huge load of fibroids. Yes, she got pregnant. Her fibroid started to melt away and everything was fine,
After 9 months, it was time! Her husband rushed her to the hospital and quickly I left everything I was doing and took care of her. After four hours it was so painful that we decided to open it. We lost her but the baby was alive. Before her death, she held the baby in her arms and smiled "God is great" and then passed away.
I was devastated and sad, I went to tell the news to her husband. Upon hearing the news, her husband passed out, their happy day just turned sour. We lost a life just to deliver a new life today.
Please respect women as they cross the valley of death to bring life. Respect your wife! Carrying your baby for 9 months is no joke, and being in labor for hours to give birth to your children is a huge sacrifice.
