Woman Dies In Childbirth As Nurses Ignore Her For ‘Faking’ Pain – Report

A pregnant woman died while giving birth at Parirenyatwa Hospital’s Mbuya Nehanda Maternity Ward after nurses allegedly ignored her cries for help.

The incident occurred on Sunday between 3 am and 5 am. The woman was found dead with the baby between her legs.

NewZimbabwe.com was told by a woman in the ward that the nurses kept saying that the now deceased was faking pain. She said:

It is like she was calling out for help throughout the night but nurses kept on saying that she was becoming a problem by faking the pain and using it to seek attention.

She eventually died in one of the rooms with her baby, with no one to help her yet they were there, a few metres from where she was.

The sight was sad; her mother came in accompanied by her sister who was saying she had texted how nurses were ignoring her.

Both the mother and sister were trying to shout at the nurses on duty but they were failing, it was really bad.

The incident was confirmed by Hospital Head of Public Relations Linos Dhire. He said a woman had passed away in a case of suspected rupture of the uterus. He said investigations into the incident were ongoing.

  1. How can people be so cruel, do this to humanity? Saddening 😞
    More mothers in the region should consider having their babies at home assisted by their grandparents or close relatives surrounded by love.
