A woman who is suspected 8-9 month pregnant cuts her belly to remove her baby.
This 28-year-old woman was found by her aunt inside their house lying in her bloody bed with a dead fetus and a knife beside her. The lower belly of the woman was cut and sewn using ordinary needle and thread.
The woman was then rushed to the Ospital ng Maynila and then was transferred to another hospital to have her belly stitched properly. According to the doctors, they were shocked when they found out that she operated by herself.
According to some reports the woman whose husband is working abroad never told him that she was pregnant and claimed that she was just gaining weight. According to the aunt, the woman worked as a helper in a health center in her province during surgical operations.
The woman is suspected not in her proper mind and might undergo psychiatric tests, if proven normal, she will be facing criminal charges.
As of now, the woman is still recovering at the Sta. Ana District Hospital and the authorities can’t get any statements from her.
