According to Joy News Ghana, she died due to unavailability of blood transfusion equipment or 'giving set' at the hospital. But the medical Director of Effa Nkwanta Hospital, Dr. Kwau Ntodi in an interview with Joy News correspondent Francis Whajah denied the report. He said the lady could have died even if the incident had not happened because she had a ruptured uterus.

Her death, he said, could not have been as a result of the movement from the hospital to another. The medical officer who attended to the deceased on arrival said the baby had already died before they arrived at the hospital.
