A Dubai air stewardess gave birth to a 6 month baby during her 24 hour layover in a Johannesburg hotel. And that not the freaky part. You know what is? She was not aware that she was pregnant! Read more here. On having terrible pains in her stomach, she thought it was an ulcer.
It’s unbelievable. How can a woman not know she is 6 months pregnant? I understand if it is 3-4 months but 6 months? I feel sorry for her and her baby. Had she known before hand, wouldn’t she be more careful? She risked her life and the life of her baby due to carelessness and negligence. Thankfully both the mother and baby are fine now.
And I surely would like to know who that doctor was. If blood and urine tests cannot uncover a pregnancy, what can?
Moreover, I think the Dubai laws are very harsh in such cases. An unmarried women cannot have babies here. If she does, both the women and her partner gets arrested. That’s why the number of cases of abandoned babies are on the rise here.
Now I am thinking who is to blame? The mother for not being more aware or the doctor for not figuring it out despite the tests or the Dubai govt for such laws? In my opinion, all are responsible. But the onus lies with the mother. Its her body, her system, her baby. She should have known better.
