Popular broadcaster Nana Yaa Brefo, a broadcast journalist with Angel 102.9 FM in Accra has made a shocking narration of how her womb had to be removed shortly after giving birth to her second child.
According to the controversial journalist, the removal of that womb is what saved her life at that time, after series of horror medical decisions at the health facility during her critical period of delivery that almost cost her life.
Nana Yaa Brefo made this shocking revelation while speaking on the issue of medical negligence in Ghanaian hospitals, which has led to the loss of several lives, with particular reference to the stories of Director of the Ghana Institute of Languages, Dr Emmanuel Kuto, who lost his wife at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (GARH) also known as Ridge Hospital, and Mustapha Muhammad who lost his wife at the same facility sometime last year when she had gone to deliver her first child.
Recounting the painful life-changing ordeal, Nana Yaa Brefo said, “Do you know that as I sit here, I am like you? There is no difference between you the man and me sitting here. What makes me a woman is missing, I have no womb…yes, I have had to live without a womb for 13 years…,”
“I almost died at the time…It got to a time that I found it difficult to even walk, I lost that baby because of this negligence and I stayed in the hospital just to take care of the baby I lost. I nearly died on the surgery bed and my womb had to be taken that day otherwise I would have died that day…,”
