Janet Mbugua’s Hubby Narrates How Painful It Was Seeing Her During Childbirth

Beautiful TV news anchor and mother, Janet Mbugua, has started opening up by posting intimate memories about her and her new family.

Following in her footsteps is her hubby, Eddie Ndichu.

Eddie has written about his harrowing experience hours before Janet Mbugua gave birth to their son, Huru.

“IT HAS BEEN OVER 14 MONTHS BUT I REMEMBER THE DAY VIVIDLY. I WAS ESCORTED TO THE DOCTORS CHANGING ROOMS TO WEAR PAIR OF SCRUBS. I WAS SHAKING WITH NERVES. I COULDN’T FEEL MY ENTIRE BODY AS I CHANGED. THE THOUGHTS GOING THROUGH MY HEAD WERE THAT THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING AND THAT MY WIFE IS ON A TABLE ALL BY HERSELF. I SHOULD RUSH. IS THERE SOMETHING I COULD HAVE DONE TO PREPARE FOR THIS MOMENT?” Eddie wrote in Janet Mbugua’s blog.

“I MAKE IT INTO THE THEATRE AND FIND HER SMALL BODY  ON THE TABLE ALL COVERED IN SURGICAL CLOTH. SHE SMILES AND I SEE SHE IS AWAKE AND NERVOUS. SHE SAYS, “I CAN’T FEEL ANYTHING”. SO I HOLD HER HAND AND KISS HER FOREHEAD GENTLY. I SAID TO HER, “THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING”. OUR CHARMING DOCTOR NARRATES, “NOT FAR TO GO… ANY MINUTE NOW”, AS HIS TEAM OPERATES ON MY WIFE. BY THIS TIME I AM SWEATING. ALL I COULD HOPE IS THAT HE IS GOING TO BE IN ONE PIECE. TWO EYES, TWO EARS, TEN FINGERS AND TOES. IS HE GOING TO BE OF SOUND MIND? HAVE ALL HIS BODY PARTS DEVELOPED COMPLETELY? WILL HE BREATHE, WILL HE CRY? THEN IN A MATTER OF SECONDS THE DOCTOR LITERALLY FLINGS HIM IN THE AIR AND SAYS ‘HERE HE IS’! THIS TINY LITTLE BODY HANGING IN THE AIR COVERED IN MUCUS. I BARELY GOT A GLIMPSE OF HIS FACE BEFORE THEY SENT HIM HAVE HIS CORD CUT. I SEE TEARS ON MY WIFE’S FACE AS SHE LAYS HELPLESSLY. I COULD SEE HOW BADLY SHE WANTED TO HOLD HIM. I CLENCH HER HAND EVEN TIGHTER AND CONSOLE HER. HE WAS WHISKED AWAY FOR NORMAL CHECKS AND A WIPE DOWN. THE DOCTOR ALLOWS ME TO GO AROUND AND WATCH THE NURSE AND HIM. IN MY EXCITEMENT I GO AROUND THE FROM WHERE MY DEAR WIFE IS CUT OPEN…. THAT’S FOR ANOTHER BLOG!!!,” HE CONTINUED.

Woman Learns She’s Pregnant, Gives Birth 1 Hour Later

A 23-year-old woman in the US gave birth an hour after she learnt for the first time that she was pregnant.

Katie Kropas asked her grandmother to drive her to the hospital because she had stomach pains. There, she learned she was nine months pregnant.

Kropas gave birth to a healthy 4.5kg baby girl one hour after learning she was pregnant, according to local news outlet NECN. She was thinking about naming her daughter Ellie, after her grandmother.

“At the time, I was like, this has got to be a joke, but I had no idea what to think,” Kropas, who lives in Weymouth, Massachusetts, told the news station.

Kropas was reportedly on birth control, had relatively regular periods and attributed her weight gain to holiday eating. When Dan Keefe, her boyfriend of two years, learned what was happening he immediately called Kropas’ mother, Karen, who thought he was kidding.

In an interview with the New York Daily News, Kropas said people in the hospital have been joking with her about not realizing she was pregnant.

Mothers stage mass nursing protest after woman to cover up with a napkin while breastfeeding her baby

A group of mothers have staged a mass breastfeed outside a  London hotel after a woman was told to cover up while she was feeding her baby.

The demonstration took place days after Louise Burns complained that she was asked to place a large napkin over her baby’s head in the restaurant as she breastfed.

Ukip leader Nigel Farage became embroiled in the row suggesting mothers could ‘sit in the corner’ in restaurants to avoid offending people – and he insisted it was ‘not too difficult’ to feed a child in a way that was ‘not openly ostentatious’.

 

Women’s childbirth memories shaped around pain they felt

Many women say childbirth is the most painful experience of their life. But new research suggests a woman’s memory of giving birth is shaped by different factors.

When recalling their experience of childbirth, women tend to remember the most painful part of labour and the pain they felt at the end – and apply these levels of pain to the whole event. As part of the study, researchers recruited 320 women and accompanied each one of them into the delivery room while they were giving birth.

They asked her to rate her pain every 20 minutes, on a scale of 1 (meaning no pain) to 100 (meaning the worst pain imaginable). They called the new mother two days after delivery and asked her to rate her pain using the same scale and provide and overall number evaluating the pain of her labour, from the moment she entered the delivery room up until she gave birth.

Two months after the delivery they asked her to evaluate the pain of her labour in this way again.

Peak end bias describes how people only recall the peak point and end point of an experience and ignore all other parts.

Duration neglect describes how people’s judgements of painful experiences are not influenced by the duration of the experience.
