How Kemi Omotoyinbo's Life could have been saved-Doctor

Kemi Omotoyinbo
Kemi Omotoyinbo died a needless death and her life could have been easily saved.
Kemo Omotoyinbo was the popular dancer and choreographer for the likes of KWAM1,Pasuma and Shina Peters who died while trying to give birth at a Lagos Hospital.A doctor apparently refused to operate on her unless she pays the N450k required for the operation.Kemi and her husband meanwhile could not raise the money that day because banks were not open,but promiesed to pay the next day.The Doctor refused and OMOTOYINBO DIED THE NEXT DAY! Now a Doctor,Doctor Sola Fajana has expressed his sadness at the event and how Kemi Omotoyinbo's life
could have been saved.Read his thoughts below...

I read about Kemi Omotoyinbo's death some few days back and I still feel so much burden to write about it. She is a popular dancer and died during child birth. Her friends took to social media to condemn the managing Doctor on how she was treated and refusal to perform the surgery due to unavailability of funds.

If I were the Doctor I would have gone ahead to save her life but my concern is why did her friends keep her there if they knew she could not afford it? I mean, 450k is a lot of money and if you can't afford it, go to a cheaper facility.

Why toy with your friend's life? I still know of some centers in Nigeria that you can get CS done for as low as 50K.

Again we can't say much because we don't know what transpired between both parties.

It is my duty to let you know that WHEN ACTIVE LABOUR LASTS MORE THAN 12HOURS, you are placing the life of the baby or the mother or both of them at risk. At that point it is an emergency.

Common reasons you may be advised to have Emergency Casserian Section:

1. Distressed foetus.
2. A previous CS scar.
3. Failed induction of Labour.
4. Bleeding or cord prolapse.
5. Scan showing transverse or breech presentation.
6. Estimated size of baby is too large.
7. Twin babies are entwined.
8. Baby has a congenital abnormality such as hydrocephalus.
9. Pelvis is particularly small or an unusual shape.

Imagine the number of people that die each day due to such negligence. It was a death that could have been prevented
