Should you save the life of the mother or the baby during childbirth?

During the pregnancy, you might have been anticipating the delivery of a brand-new child, you have bought the clothes, made the cot, and decorated the nursery as you anticipate the delivery of the child, but complications arise as they usually do, and you are forced to choose one, the baby or the mother.

 

The decision becomes particularly difficult if, for religious reasons, you cannot subscribe to the killing of the unborn child, what should you do?

Medically speaking, the baby or the mother can become endangered at different stages of the pregnancy, but at every stage, a doctor will save the mother’s life. If the child can be saved without the mother dying, then the child will be saved, if not, the mother will be saved.

“If you mean during the pregnancy the mother’s life is in danger, then so is the baby’s because if mom dies, the baby will die in minutes. If the fetus is not inside the uterus (usually 24 weeks) we simply save the mother, but if beyond, we will deliver and try to save both with the infant in the NICU.” A medical doctor on Quora said.

A mother’s life is worth more than an unborn child. She has experiences, commitments and a family that knows and loves her, and even though the loss of an unborn child can be painful on her body and mental health, she should be saved.

The process of natal care without a nursing mother and the possibility of a child growing up without such care is not attractive.

“Nigeria’s maternal mortality rate is still among the highest in the world, with an estimated 512 deaths per 100,000 live births.” Punch reports. That’s an unfair statistics, women should not have to die to bring life into the world.

Also, the couple can always try to get pregnant again. It goes without saying who should be saved, especially if the husband is tasked with that decision.
