"I was fighting with my all to deliver her"
This mom tells of how she had undergone an episiotomy while giving birth. 

Everytime I look at my little girl I think of that day when I was fighting with my all to deliver her, I had no pain but was told to push when I felt some pain. The midwife told me to be serious because my girl was suffocating, she told me that she could see her head n her skin colour was changing cause of lack of air.

Tears were rolling down my cheeks and I askd her to help. 1 doctor came n seemed not to care, da midwife pressed my upper tummy as I pushed but my girl still didn't cum out. I was about to go for an operation, by then I was praying. They then did a episiotomy and kept pressing on me as I pushed and finally she popped. My baby was not crying, her skin was not dat pink- slightly green. Her apgar score was 5. But some minutes later I heard her cry and I was relieved.
