Gynecologist advises pregnant women with HIV to choose an imperial birth – The Eagle Online


Gynecologist, Dr. G Jones Owolabi, advised pregnant women that HIV-positive patients choose to deliver their babies through cesarean sections.
Owolabi told the news agency of Nigeria on Thursday Ilorin that women living with HIV can not give birth through normal delivery without infecting their babies with HIV.
According to him, many babies were infected by HIV through a normal birth canal birth and some babies lost their lives in this process.
He said: "Pregnant women infected with AIDS are advised to adopt a cesarean section to protect babies from HIV infection."
According to Owolabi, most physicians preferred cesarean section to women with HIV, because chances were that the baby would be affected.
However, HIV is attached to positive expectations to recommend cesarean section only if the lives of the baby and the mother are at high risk during childbirth.
According to him, cesarean section selection causes women to lose more blood than regular delivery through the birth canal and wounds from a surgical incision can be infected if the treatment is not taken.
The expert also noted that the birth of a baby through cesarean section has its attendant risks.
He described the passage as an act that allows the baby to be born through an incision made on their mother's abdominal wall and in their uterus.
Ullabee said: "During normal birth a baby is born when it goes out through the mother's vagina, but with birth a cesarean section of birth is born when it comes through a surgical incision or cut which is made into the mother's stomach." He explained that in the process of cesarean section, women may lose a lot of blood and if adequate care is not taken, the wounds of the surgery can be infected.
However, the medical doctor noted that women in some countries such as the United States of America and the United Kingdom most of the time choose C-part to choose for birth through surgery, it is still a good procedure done to save the babies' lives.
He stressed that there is a 13% risk for women who provide cesarean babies out of 100,000 women.
He said: "C-section is not as difficult as people see it.
"Doctors are supposed to try their best to save lives, but it's only God who dictates our efforts."
