Posted March 02, 2020 16:11:59A 19-year-old woman in South Africa is in hospital after a miscarriage.
Her mother, who did not want to be named, said she woke up at 5.15am with “the most horrible feeling in my stomach”.
“My heart was beating really fast.
I couldn’t breathe,” she said.”
My stomach was like a lump.
I could hear the water running down my throat and it was terrible.””
I went downstairs to the bathroom and I felt the water and I was in a panic because my husband was there.
I thought that he would see that I was upset and I would be crying.”
I just went to the bedroom and cried and called him and I said ‘my baby is going to get eaten’.
I was shaking.
I didn’t know what to do.
I was so scared.
“The next day, Ms Rynn woke up in a hospital bed with a blood clot in her womb.
Doctors diagnosed her with uterina prolapse stage two, which is a complication of the pregnancy and can be life-threatening.”
Doctors told Ms Ryna that she should have been at home with her baby but her GP said she was fine.”
I was so sad because I thought I was going to have another miscarriage.”
Doctors told Ms Ryna that she should have been at home with her baby but her GP said she was fine.
Ms Rynne is now recovering at home in a different state.
“It’s really difficult for me because my baby is my life.
I love my baby.
I have no regrets.
It’s not going to be easy for me to get my life back but I’m going to do everything I can to get it,” she told news.com.au.
Ms Yerra’s story is a stark reminder of the risk of miscarriages during pregnancy and the need to do more to make sure women are properly educated about the complications.
“If there’s anything that we have to do in this country, it’s educate women,” Ms Yerri said.
“It was my job to educate the women who were in the hospital and now I’m telling them what they should do and how to do it.”
