Crane mother of three dies in childbirth after C-section delayed
A Crane, West Coast Demerara woman died yesterday while giving birth at the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH) and her family says her death could have been easily avoided had medical personnel followed protocol.
Kenya Alleyne, 28, of the Lot 296 Crane Housing Scheme, succumbed while undergoing a caesarean section at the WDRH. Her baby girl was delivered and is being kept at the hospital for monitoring.
Relatives said they were not notified of her death until sometime after 2 pm and they are peeved at the treatment meted out to the mother of three as hospital staff were aware that she was scheduled to undergo a C-section surgery but delayed it hoping she would deliver naturally.
