Having female kids is not the woman’s fault
One would think that in this era when every child is seen as equal and precious, such things wouldn’t exist. It was really displeasing that the hospital staff decided to take it to Twitter.
The nurse, known as @kemziekayy, wrote in her tweet:
“I can’t believe in this day and age some Nigerian men still don’t know that having all female kids isn’t the woman’s fault…that’s how this man hasn’t come to see his wife in the hospital since she gave birth 3 days ago because she had another girl.”
