“I DELIVERED BONES!!!”. ALWAYS KEEP TRACK OF YOUR BABY’S MOVEMENT DURING PREGNANCY

Curiosity they say kills the cat. Today I met my lovely senior colleague who has gone on retirement. As usual I engaged her in a conversation around her experience in childbirth. Wanted to know how much experience she has gained in her practice

My question brought things out.. !” How Much experience do you have in childbirth? I delivered bones” The first thought….. Was it spiritual or what is she talking about?

She replied “No Sally, the baby had died for months and mother didn’t know about it till things got worse!”

In shock I asked… How can that be?
“You don’t know! . But mother survived after effective care and antibiotics was given for several months” .

Lesson: Once your baby starts moving or kicking, the baby should not stop moving! After 16 weeks to 20 weeks quickening occurs and mum should be conversant with babies movement.

If babies movement is no more felt, reduces or becomes excessive. Call your midwife or doctor immediately. Stay healthy!!!!

Your baby’s movement should not slow down during pregnancy.

I Salute you Midwife Matilda Surr. You have contributed your quota to women’s health!
