Former Nairobi Diaries actress Venessa Ruto alias Vanessa Chettle is admitted to hospital after she lost her baby in a motorbike accident.
She said that her boyfriend and herself was involved in a motorbike accident but she did not think it was that serious until she started experiencing abdominal pain.
She gave birth by herself in her bathroom, the same place where she delivered her firstborn where she started bleeding excessively forcing her partner to call an ambulance.
“A few days ago though, my partner & I encountered a motorcycle accident that we didn’t think was that serious, the weather was bad so we headed home, as I was making breakfast the next day, I started having sharp abdominal pains & in less than an hour I was bleeding in the bathroom screaming & waiting for an ambulance..sigh
“History repeats itself and I gave birth to my barely six months old baby girl right there! Another miracle that made it into this crazy world in a crazy way though she was perfect! The only problem is that she was too early and I was too weak. I held her so close, myself drifting n out of consciousness, and finally, we made it to the hospital. I was going to name her Ayanna ❤️,” she wrote.
She managed to reach the hospital where she was put into an Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where doctors managed to save her life but her child did not make it.
“I went into shock from all the blood loss and my baby was immediately put in an incubator, trust me that’s not a sight for a fainthearted parent 💔
“Still hooked to machines and deep into blood transfusions, I wasn’t allowed to leave or move for 24 hours. My family didn’t want to tell me anything either, they just wanted me to get “back to life”
“So I waited n waited n when I could finally see her I was broken. I prayed she would survive but she looked so frail n was so tiny.
“And after four good days, my baby’s lungs gave in 😢 yes this is God’s plan but it hurt so much. I’ve been through a lot but this surpasses it all. I will always cherish those few days I got to be with her n the months I got to carry her. I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready to bring life into this world again but God will provide all the hope I need.
“R.I.P my strong strong Ayann. Or as the doctors simply called you, Baby Vanessa ❤️” she wrote.
