Photo: How Mother Of Seven Defied Doctors Advice To Give Birth To Triplet At Home, Making Her Babies Ten

A housewife, Mrs. Blessing Etoor, defied doctor’s instruction
that she would be delivered of her babies by Caesarean section.
Mrs. Etoor, an indigene of Eleme in Rivers State by
marriage, who now has 10 children (six girls and four boys) through multiple
births, eventually gave birth to triplets around 1am on Monday at home the
natural way without going through the knives.
It was gathered that Mrs. Etoor, who was formerly a hair
dresser, was able to push for the first baby to come out before help finally
came her way from a local nurse.

Narrating how she was delivered of the remaining two babies,
Mrs. Etoor, said her husband was able to bring in somebody that helped her.
She said, “I gave birth to the babies in the house. I was
not feeling labour; I was just calling on my husband to give me water to take
my bath. I sat back and lay down. Just as I was sleeping, water began to rush
“Then I asked my husband to run out and bring somebody to
take me to the hospital. But then he should ask his younger brother to come and
stay with me. Before the brother came, it was like something was coming out of
“I asked my children to help me stay on the ground. I was
calling my first daughter, Faith, to help me. Just as I lay down with my back
on the ground, I started feeling the baby trying to come out.
“I pushed and the first baby came out. So, I called on my
husband to bring somebody in to help me. With the help, I was able to be
delivered of the other two babies.”
Mrs. Etoor pointed out that her two elder sisters had given
birth to twins, stressing that her family has a history of multiple births.
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, Mr. John Etoor, recalled that he had kicked
against the Caesarean 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 added that though he never prayed for multiple births, he
had accepted them because they were given to him by God.

Mr. Etoor, however, called for financial support from
government and public-spirited individuals, adding that the babies were
currently at home while the doctors had, according to him, told him to bring
the babies when they are in stable condition.
