Man Divorces His 14-year-old Wife All Because A Male Doctor Attend To Her During Childbirth

A 14-year-old girl in Katsina State, Nigeria, faced a heartbreaking ordeal as her husband divorced her after she allowed a male doctor to attend to her during childbirth.

The Executive Director of Nana Women and Girls Initiative, Dr Fatima Adamu, shared this distressing incident at a Human Resources for Health Production Dialogue.

The teenager experienced complications during delivery and had to be rushed to the hospital, where, unfortunately, only a male doctor was available.

Despite successfully giving birth, the husband was deeply unhappy about the male doctor’s involvement and decided to end the marriage.

“A 14-year-old Fulani girl in Katsina State delivered and had difficulty with delivery, so we had to take her to the hospital and after the delivery, the husband divorced her because she was attended by a man. This young girl was divorced all because she was attended by a man during delivery,” Adamu is quoted saying.

Adamu emphasized the importance of training more nurses and midwives to address the shortage of healthcare workers, urging state governments to take action instead of relying solely on the federal government.
