A Senior Midwife at Adabraka Polyclinic has warned pregnant women to shave their private parts before labour.

Hajia Damata Sulemana believes that pregnant women risk contracting serious infections if they refused to shave.

She explained that when the private parts are not shaved, clots of blood could be trapped in the hairs which could lead to serious complications later after delivery.

Hajia Damata Sulemana’s view come after a pregnant woman who was in labour was turned away by a nurse in Koforidua because she her pubic hair was bushy.

Bushira Safinau, 25, was reportedly ordered by the midwife to go home and shave before she can be assisted to give birth at the health centre.

Heavily pregnant and restless with pain, the lady reportedly pleaded with the nurse to help but her pleas were ignored.

Unable to bear the discomfort and pain, she decided to go back home but delivered on her way.

But the midwife warned of dangers accompanied by such acts.
