Beware harsh images! The woman who gave birth during her shift says she didn’t know she was pregnant. Both are in good health.
An incredible incident happened at KAT, with a woman giving birth in the hospital toilet bowl.
“Truly an unimaginable event, no human mind can comprehend it”, commented Michalis Giannakos, President of POEDIN.
«I didn’t know I was pregnant“, said the mother of the newborn on the Mega show “LIVE NEWS”, who noticed the pains of childbirth at around one and even while she was on shift as a cleaner at the hospital.
«I didn’t even know I was pregnant. The day I gave birth, I felt it. I felt intense pain. I was on the morning shift“, emphasized the mother.
“I went to the bathroom and the baby came out”
Everything unfolded on Thursday morning at the CAT hospital. The young lady was normally at her post as a cleaner in the operating rooms, when she suddenly felt a sharp and sharp pain.
«I was sick and went to the outpatient clinic. Then I thought I wanted to do the other one and the baby came out“, he said.
The woman has just given birth in a basin in the KAT toilet. Distraught, the doctors, not knowing exactly what had happened, saw her coming out of the toilet covered in blood.
«He suddenly came out of a toilet and the head of the ward and his colleagues found there that he had blood. They were led to the toilet and found the baby in the pelvis with placental abruption“, said Michalis Giannakos.
The emergency doctors were then notified and provided first aid to both the mother and the newborn.
«We moved quickly with the doctors and nurses, looked for the mother and the newborn and did a quick management. We are not a hospital that has gynecology/obstetrics obviously. We had a concern about the baby. For us it was a surprise because usually children are not born in KATsaid the doctor.
His only thought was to do everything to keep alive the baby that came to life in such an unexpected way.
«After he tied the umbilical cord and I saw that the baby reacted, we started a process of managing both the mother and the little one to take them to the most appropriate sanitary formation which was “Elena”. We managed to complete all this in an hoursaid the doctor
“The child wanted to live”
Mother and newborn were immediately transferred to “Elena” where the premature baby remains to this day in an incubator.
«I see it every afternoon the baby. And when first God I go back to work, I’ll take these two doctors who saved me to thank them in person” commented the mother.
«Colleagues, doctors and other staff did everything humanly possible while it is not their specialty and saved both the baby and the woman“, noted Mr. Giannakos.
«The child wanted to live. This is the main thing. We have handled several incidents but in this one you cannot be prepared. But we showed a readiness as a team, doctors, nurses, everyonesaid the hospital doctor.
The president of POEDIN expresses his reservations about whether the woman in question did not realize that she was pregnant or whether it was ultimately an incident of workplace intimidation.
«What one can assume is that the colleague was unemployed for a long time and was afraid to reveal the pregnancy lest the contractor fire her. Whereas if she worked permanently under contract at the hospital, I believe none of this would happen“, he said.
As he himself says:There have been five previous births from the same woman. She is 7.5 months to 8 months pregnant. Could it be that she doesn’t realize she’s pregnant? The experts must answer us».
According to the same report, the woman’s five children are not in her care, with her saying that after her maternity leave ends she wants to return to work.
The mother was discharged last Friday while the premature baby is still hospitalized in an incubator.
