K24 TV Swahili News Anchor Isabella Kituri on Friday experienced a labour scare as she read the news.

In a video she shared on Instagram, Ms Kituri said that she only experienced Braxton Hicks a condition pregnant women experience as false labour.

She went on to joke about her co-anchor Franklin Wambugu’s reaction during the labour scare saying that he was ready to wheel her to hospital.

According to Wikipedia, Braxton Hicks contractions, also known as practice contractions, are sporadic uterine contractions that sometimes start around sixteen weeks into a pregnancy. These contractions are, however, usually felt in the second trimester or third trimester of pregnancy.
