Wouldn’t it be expected that a woman who it took 19-years to conceive would follow her doctor’s instructions to the last letter? Why would anyone even go against their doctor’s advice? 

A twitter user who goes by @deedeeposh has narrated how her aunt died with her set of twins during childbirth because she wanted to give birth naturally against her doctor’s advice.

According to Deedeeposh, her aunt had been married for 19 years in which she tried to conceive (TTC). Finally, she was blessed with pregnancy and was expecting a set of twins but she made a decision that cost her her life and that of her babies.

Contrary to the advise of her doctor to bring her babies forth through CS for safety reasons, she opted for natural birthing method.

Unfortunately, she had birth complications and died alongside her twin babies.

Deedeeposh wrote; “Sometimes if we Nigerians can just listen to our doctors advice, more lives will be saved. I lost my aunty two days ago to childbirth. Married for 19 years and finally got pregnant with twins at 44 years old.

She wanted to give birth naturally & the doctor said she was too old & advised against it since it was her first time giving birth. She refused CS & died in the process.

The twins died too. I feel so bad for her husband because that man was patient. Can’t imagine how he’s feeling.”


Some Nigerians who stumbled on the post sympathized with her but most couldn’t help but state how her aunty’s death and that of her babies could have been avoided.
