Skeem Sam actress reveals her 3 minutes death

Skeem Sam actress Pebetsi Matlaila who plays the role of Mokgadi Maputla Leeto's ex wife shares her story of 3 minutes death while giving birth.

Pebetsi in her pregnancy she was diagnosed with preeclampsia which led to the complications she experienced during the birth of her child Qhawekazi. She share pictures of her child in ICU,but by God's grace they got through.

Pebetsi shared that she drove herself to the hospital that day and was going through labour pains. Her blood pressure was extremely high and that posed a risk to her and baby Q. So this prompted a quick response from doctors who she now calls her Angels!

When she got up to head to theatre, she remembers telling the nurse that she could not breathe but then it was “light’s out.” When she woke up, doctors told her that she had been dead for 3 minutes and that her daughter was born blue.

When she woke up she was told her heart and lungs collapsed, after she had fits (where she almost bit off my tongue) due to the High -Blood pressure (Pre-eclampsia). Apparently she was dead for 3 minutes but resuscitated with those electric square things and her daughter was apparently born blue with no oxygen in her brain.

They had to spend a month in ICU due to the severity of their birth experience and they thank God for saving their lives.

She was also involved in car accident after she tried to run away from highjackers while she was pregnant.

With God by your side nothing shall go wrong. We thank God for protecting our favorite actress and her daughter.
