The husband of a 27-year-old lady in Krishnagiri, Tamil Nadu, apparently used a method he discovered on YouTube to try to give birth naturally at home, but she died owing to massive blood loss during delivery. Because her husband improperly severed the umbilical cord, the woman lost blood.
Loganayaki, a native of Puliampatti near Pochampalli, died, and Rathika, the medical officer of the Primary Health Centre (PHC), reported her death to the police.
Police sources claim that when Loganayaki’s labour pains began, her husband, Madhesh, decided to have the baby at home. The umbilical cord was reportedly improperly cut at delivery, causing significant blood loss. She was rushed to the PHC in an unconscious and was pronounced dead when she got there.
The police then reported the incident in accordance with Section 174 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC).
