“I don’t have a womb” – Nana Yaa Brefo
She narrates how her womb was removed by doctors.
Popular Ghanaian TV presenter, Nana Yaa Brefo has opened up on how she has been living as a woman without a womb for over 17 years.
Nana Yaa Brefo shared her story to address medical negligence by some healthcare workers that result in the death of patients. This came as a reaction to the wife of the Director of the Ghana Institute of Languages, Dr Emmanuel Kuto losing her life at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (GARH), Ridge Hospital.
Emmanuel Kuto disclosed how the doctors administered the wrong medication to his wife which inevitably led to her death. The testimony matched the words of one Mustapha Muhammad who lost his wife at the same facility sometime last year.
Speaking on Anopa Bofo on Angel 102.9FM, the seasoned broadcaster disclosed that she has had to live without a womb for almost 17 years after complications from her last pregnancy.
“Do you know that as I sit here, I am like you, there is no difference between you the man and me sitting here. What makes me a woman is missing, I have no womb…yes, I have had to live without a womb for 13 years…,”
” I don’t have a womb, my womb was taken off after delivery by a doctor”
“I almost died at the time…I got to a time that I found it difficult to even walk, I lost that baby because of this negligence and I stayed in the hospital just to take care of the baby I lost.
“I also died on the surgery table and my womb had to be taken that day otherwise I would have died that day…,” s
The sad revelation got to host, Captain Smart, in tears and he offered her a touching hug of comfort.
Nana Yaa Brefo has a son from her first marriage. The 42-year-old is currently on her third marriage with a husband based in the US.
As it stands now there’s no way she can conceive again and have a child of her own unless maybe through a special medical process.
