For this was never meant to be the outcome, considering a child’s formative years and beyond, were meant to be one, bonded with their mother. Where such a bond, consequential when fractured, is initiated at conception, with the mother’s nutrient rich afterbirth, delivers essential sustenance. In fact, this bond epitomises agape love, where even with the mother starved of nutrients, she prioritises her unborn. Certainly, an enigma in utero, of a mother’s voice recognisable to the unborn, as is her smell and mood, forging that emotional bond, that’s mutual.
When a mother dies
However, for us it was abbreviated, our mother’s death in childbirth, from a negligently missed ectopic pregnancy. Where birthed from that tragedy, her untimely death, were deaths to five orphans boys. A Psychological death. An Emotional death. A Financial death. A Social death. A Physical death of two before their 35th birthdays. For scarred we are. Mental scars unseen, which I evidence. Bipolar Affective Disorder, of highs and lows. Complex-Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(C-PTSD), of unpredictable flashbacks and nightmares. That trauma at 8yrs old, haunts life today. The sequela that goes unnoticed, with the sudden and untimely death of a mother.
Which leads us to they that snatched political power, who can’t relate to such childhood pains, since their mothers weren’t cruelly snatched. For had they, their grieving hearts wouldn’t have been visiting such on our innocent children. They would’ve surely done more for our women with child. For this we know, when our mother dies, the family dies. Her children dies. And when a young mother dies, her young children are traumatised, evidenced in Princes William and Harry.
But self-evident is the underpinning of these mental scars. The developing brain burdened with a tragedy, it can’t understand. An maternal-child bond prematurely shattered. For breastfeeding was much more than breastfeeding. Baby talk was much more than baby talk. The smell of a mother, was much more than a mother’s smell.
Thus, a confession to share. Of our then baby daughter, when an undisturbed night was priceless. So with her asleep in the crib, an unwashed piece of her mother’s clothing is positioned next to her. And the result was magical. She slept, comforted by the smell. The smell of her mother.The smell of her protector. That’s robbed of in death.
Thus, the medical semantics shall be disregarded. The medical superfluity, shall be rendered simple, yet digestible. For the maternal death we speak of, measures the deaths of our mothers. So I repeat, with emphasis for PPP, maternal mortality measures the deaths of our mothers
Which mean, of APNU+AFC we revisit, when a similar maternal nightmare they confronted in 2015. However, quickly was the recognition that the solution was beyond them. As a result, they sought PAHO. They beseeched Dr. Gobin to lead a maternal deaths investigation. And for their humility. Their willingness to listen. Lives were saved. Maternal mortality plummeted. Our children’s mental health protected.
But the installed PPP are on a campaign of lies. With the Chief Propagandist, Dr. Lesley Ramsammy, mirroring Joseph Goebbels. So with the masses dying from a stab wound to the hip, he disseminated propaganda on cardiac interventions and kidney transplantations. But admit I must, the masqueraders in Drs. Mahendra Carpen and Kishore Persaud, needed some love after my lectures and lashes. However, such wasn’t urgent, could’ve surely awaited the outcomes of those in the hospitals.
Nevertheless, despite deaths, the Chief Propagandist remained laser focused on spewing PPP propaganda. So he bragged about the number of cardiac interventions undertaken. The number of transplanted kidneys. That has positioned us numero uno, the envy of the world, even as the morticians prepared the next cohort of maternal deaths. But such the brainless buffoon couldn’t appreciate, as he disinformed about their resurrected Health Service. Thus, first class Healthcare frequently exited his lips of lies. Then the World Bank- Your Healthcare is crap. Not fit for purpose.
However, PPP remained brainlessly delusional in their know all disposition. For Dr. Leslie Ramsammy never set foot in a medical school, yet masquerades as a medical doctor. But of the following quartet I endeavour to be kind. Dr. Bewitched Ramsaran, Dr. Virgin Persaud, Dr. Numbskull Singh and Dr. Dolittle, are all blinded bats. For they are all registered phonies, nonetheless deluded in being pantheons. As a result, our mothers are paying with their lives. PPP the party of the compliant dedicated and not the forward-thinking educated.
Therefore, my anger must be excused. These boneheads must be insulted, and awakened to the pains they’ve caused. For our mothers are needlessly dying, rendering their emotional distress inconsequential. And over the weekend, two more died, with too many to mention having died over the past months. Thus, Dr. Anthony aka Dr. Dolittle, was interrupted from his seven curry, to announce a Thorough Investigation was prescribed. But we have news for this halfwit-Neither post-mortem nor Thorough Investigation could bring back our dead mothers.
That said, an admission. There is a place for investigating maternal deaths. However, these investigations must be independent, where lessons learnt are recognised and disseminated. But this PPP has been undertaking Thorough Investigations since I was a misunderstood medical student. But cognisant we are- All such Thorough Investigations were immediately handed to the undertakers, for burial. Which mean, the mistakes are on perpetual repeat. And so are the deaths. As a result, we refuse placating with their Thorough Investigation hogwash.
Why are they dying?
For the answer we sought. Is the answer we now see. Charrandass abusing a woman. Ossie Rodger abusing a woman. Dr. Ramsaran abusing a woman. Dharamlall abusing women. Let’s not talk about Jagdeo. For they all abuse our women, since they careless about the lives of our life givers. They careless about our mothers. Therefore, they sit on their hands, as our mothers die. However, Charrandass unwittingly exposed their mantra, “Women not allowed in here.” Unfortunately, only the undertakers are having them.
