Woman Gave Birth To A Terrifying Snake

In Koronadal City, southern Philippines, a married woman [named withheld for privacy
reasons] gave birth to a 2-foot long snake, reports Bombo Radyo Koronadal, a local
radio station.

According to the report posted on radio station’s
Facebook page, the 37-year-old woman was
married but her husband is currently in the
country’s capital, Manila.

One day, before her husband’s scheduled
homecoming on January 5, 2016, the woman
already showed symptoms of pregnancy.
Seemingly with morning sickness, the woman
would frequently vomit and found it diôcult to
eat because of her worsening condition. She also complained of stomachache.

The woman’s parents reportedly brought her to 3 diöerent hospitals but not one could
provide them a clue to her condition. When a pregnancy test came back positive, they
scheduled an ultrasound but doctors could not conñrm whether she was carrying a
child since the fetus did not look like a typical baby but had a long body.

Fearful for their daughter’s life, the woman’s parents brought her to faith healers. They
went to a total of 7 witch doctors but only the last one positively told them he could heal
their daughter.

The woman underwent ‘treatment’ for a month under the last witch doctor. Then, on
February 16, Tuesday, with the assistance of the witch doctor who encouraged her to
‘push’ the baby amid birthing contractions, the woman allegedly gave birth to a creature
which looked more like a snake than a baby.

The birth was supposedly witnessed not just by the witch doctor and the woman’s
parents but by other relatives and onlookers as well.

Upon seeing the creature which allegedly had teeth that resembled those of a piranha,
the woman’s mother pierced it to death using a sharpened ‘bagakay’ (a thin type of
bamboo believed to Òght/counteract evil and supernatural creatures). Not content with
killing the creature, the woman’s mother also burned the snake’s body.

According to the report, the woman is now recuperating and the family had requested
for their identities to remain anonymous.
