KUALA LUMPUR: When it came to giving birth and becoming a mother, singer extraordinary Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza was just like any other person and had to undergo some challenges.
Although she safely delivered her firstborn seven days ago, the 39-year-old songstress recalled an alarming incident during her C-section operation where she encountered a complication due to considerable blood loss.
Thankfully, through the skillful handling of her doctor and medical personnel at a private hospital here where she received the treatment, Siti’s condition had stabilised considerably.
Speaking at a thanksgiving event at her home in Bukit Antarabangsa last night, she said: “Every mother has a different experience of giving birth to a child. I had some complications after losing lots of blood which was caused by certain factors. But thank God, my doctor was quick to replace my lost blood which in turn returned me to my normal condition.”
Siti added that she was then placed in the maternity ward for a day of observation before the doctor gave the go-ahead for her to be transferred to the regular ward.
The singer of the cute new single, Comel Pipi Merah, said that although the incision on her belly from the operation was still quite raw, she had to muster the strength to endure the pain for the sake of her beloved baby girl.
“I could start walking slowly after the third day and told myself to be strong. I didn’t want to ‘manja’ myself too much. As women, we go through these situations as an experiential process. But as soon as I saw her face, my pain immediately went away,” said Siti during the event last night, which was available for viewing live on her Siti Official Video channel on YouTube.
Siti, who had finally delivered her first baby after close to 12 years of trying with husband Datuk Seri Khalid Mohamad Jiwa, also officially announced the name of her little princess during the 80-minute live session.
Prior to this, her baby girl was nicknamed Fatimah Az-Zahra after the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad.
The award-winning artiste had decided on calling her beloved baby Siti Aafiyah and explained that the name Aafiyah was chosen for its beautiful and deep meaning, in addition to being a word commonly recited in prayers.
At this time, the renowned singer is undergoing her confinement period and will only return to her career commitments by year end.
