A mystery baby was delivered yesterday morning at the Regent Health Centre that has raised eyebrows among people who believe that the baby delivered was a devil.
Speaking to the nurse in charge, Mrs. Victoria Greene said the lady (name withheld) came to the centre, early in the morning after she felt pain and her mother-in-law who should have helped to deliver her was not around.
So she had to be rushed to the centre and on arrival the baby’s feet were protruding and she was taken to the maternity ward to save her life and the baby’s.
When the baby was delivered, it was a big shock to the staff when they saw the mystery baby.
Mrs. Victoria Greene said this is the first of such delivery in the health centre and it has upset them the whole day. The midwife said she has seen such at the Princess Christian Maternity Hospital (Cottage) and she believes it is natural.
The woman who gave birth to the mystery baby said she believes her baby was not of natural cause as she thinks it was due to witch craft.
She said a woman in a compound was pregnant and after eight months her pregnancy disappeared. Later they had a quarrel and she believes that the utterances of the woman had an effect on her baby.
Most of the people I spoke to believe that it is not natural as they believe the baby has to do with witchcraft.
They said they have never seen such a baby, “it is a devil and it is not natural”, they said.
The baby that was born at the health centre has a big head with a wider mouth and no eyes. Also the fingers of the baby are not the same with one of the feet having all five toes and the other only has one toe.
The baby has both male and female organs and unfortunately, the baby was delivered dead and the woman was still admitted at the health centre but she was in a stable condition with no after birth effect.
