On Monday in Rivers State, a former hair dresser, Blessing Etoor, defied doctor’s instruction that she would be delivered of her babies by Cesarean section, by giving birth to a set triplets around 1am on Monday at home through the natural means.
She and her husband, John Etoor, now have 10 children (six girls and four boys). And according to Punch, people have been visiting the one-bedroom apartment of the Etoors on hearing how the woman from Ekiti State shunned doctor’s directive and gave birth to triplets at home.
Her husband recalled that he had kicked against the Cesarean section written on her card by the doctor at the General Hospital, Nchia, because none of his wife’s family had the history of undergoing such a method of giving birth.
He called for financial support from government and public-spirited individuals.
