Rejected by two hospitals, Basketmouth’s wife shares pregnancy journey

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress


Popular comedian, Bright Okpocha a.k.a Basketmouth, and his wife, Elsie Okpocha, have revealed the face of their little baby girl birthed two months ago.

The comedian had celebrated his wife’s birthday a month ago, July 13, where she showed her bump, suggesting a newborn on the way or an old photo.

The new parents, however, displayed the pictures of their baby girl on Instagram today, August 31, 2021.

His wife, Elsie Okpocha, has narrated her pregnancy journey, and how she almost lost her baby because two hospitals rejected them.

According to the hospitals, they didn’t register their antenatal with them.

She said, “My Little Miracle…..

“So let me share my testimony with you
So on the day i put to birth, i was rejected by 2 hospitals(i had registered in one of them ) even though labour had started and my contractions were happening every 2minutes, their reason was that I hadn’t done my antenatal with them so they didn’t want to take me in case there was an emergency.

“So after 40mins of driving back and forth, i was eventually admitted to Reddington Hospital in VI, i can only thank God it was midnight so there was no traffic, so while in the labour room, my water broke and i had a cord Prolapse…. (Never heard of it until that day)

“So a Cord Prolapse is when the cord comes out of the uterus before the baby, when this happens, it can result in a loss of oxygen to the baby, and may even result in a stillbirth.

“But God was gracious, he was kind, he didn’t let the Devil win…. When i saw the Doctor and Nurses Panic, i knew Something was wrong, in that moment of fear, I started to declare life for myself and my baby, thankfully God came through as always

“Fortunately the Doctor knew the emergency steps to take to keep my baby alive while they prepared me for an emergency CS, the CS doctor arrived in good time and i had my baby who is well and alive. Thank you Lord.”

Basketmouth also posted the baby pictures on his Instagram page, his caption suggests the possibility of getting a firearm for his daughter’s protection.
