International News: UNICEF concerned since Caesarian sections performed in Gaza without anaesthetic

Posted: Friday, January 19, 2024. 2:59 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: UNICEF is concerned since Caesarean section operations are being performed without anaesthetic in the Gaza Strip due to the lack of medicines.

In addition, UNICEF noted that mothers are forced to leave hospital three hours after having Caesarian section operations due to overcrowding.

One nurse reported that she had had to perform caesarean sections on six dead mothers in 8 weeks to save the babies they were carrying.

UNICEF Spokesperson Tess Ingram was in the Gaza Strip and described the conditions in Gaza.

Many mothers are unable to breastfeed their babies due to the shock of the living conditions and there is hardly any baby food available.

Concern is growing about the long-term consequences of these conditions for the infants.

Ingram said almost 20,000 babies have been born there since October 7.

Mothers face unimaginable challenges in accessing adequate medical care, nutrition, and protection before, during and after giving birth,” she said.

“Becoming a mother should be a time for celebration. In Gaza, it’s another child delivered into hell,” Ingram said.

“Humanity cannot allow this warped version of normal to persist any longer. Mothers and newborns need a humanitarian ceasefire,” Ingram urged.
