Panic took over following the delivery of a strange baby at a hospital in Abia state. According to Facebook user Cynthia Chioma, the mother of the strange baby survived the delivery but lost the baby some moments after.
”He is an anencephalic baby,this kind of birth defect is caused by lack of folic acid in the body of the woman. If a woman’s body cuts short folic acid and she conceives, the lack of folic acid in her body will result to this where a part of the skull or the whole skull will be completely gone.
These babies grow like normal pregnancies but once the baby is born and detached from the mother the baby dies. Lots of us don’t know if our body cuts short folic acid until the person must have taken in and will discover she is carrying an anencephalic baby maybe at 5months.
So its important that once a woman is ready to start trying out for a child or gets married or is having unprotected sex that can lead to pregnancy, she should start taking folic acid to prevent things like this”
