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?
