Facebook User Rants About Nigerian Labour Rooms

This Facebook user has a very low opinion of Nigerian labour rooms and how women are treated during delivery. Read what he posted below:

"If you see where a woman is giving birth abroad , even as a man you will feel like
getting pregnant. In abroad, for only one woman in labor, you will see an Obstetrician , a Gynaecologist, a General Surgeon , a Specialist Surgeon, an Anaesthetist , a Registered Nurse/Midwife, plus Social Welfare Officer and so on…And they pet women in labour “that’s why it is called Delivery Room over there.”

But in Nigerian my Country it is called “Labour Room” and if you see what women go through
here, you will agree with me that it should also be called “Confession and Trial Room” Nigerian nurses makes pregnancy look like a criminal offence , and the worse thing is that they are everywhere both in private and government hospital.

For instance, when a woman who is in labour is brought to the hospital , they will throw her into the
labour room and lock her up like a criminal awaiting trial and they will go to the reception and be gossiping like goat. And when they go to meet her, it is not to help her but to insult her: “You go dey hear things like:  Na me do you? The man wey do u dey here o! Madam push o! Abeg open your legs door! Abi you wan kill ur pekin?.. You better push now or I go leave you here o!


............I can't help but laugh at some bits of his post but is he right?
