In Tirupur of Tamil Nadu, a recent incident has shocked everyone. A 28 years old woman named K Krithiga Reddy died due to birth complications after delivering a baby at home on Sunday. She was a school teacher, and her husband Karthigeyan were residents of Rathnagiriswarar Nagar.
Reportedly, the couple attempted to deliver their child at home by watching YouTube videos. The deceased Krithiga bled to death when the placenta did not come out of her during the delivery. The police officials stated that,
“The contractions began at 2 pm but she was taken to the government hospital at only 3.30 pm after the baby was born. The husband has been booked and will be investigated in connection to the death.”
City health officer K Boopathy told that Praveen and Lavanya, a couple who were friends with Kirthiga and Karthigeyan, convinced them to have a delivery at home rather than having it at the hospital. The health officer said that he had registered a case against Praveen and Lavanya.
