According to him, the doctor called a close friend to be with him before they broke the news to him. He said:

He took me inside the car and told me a proverb about men drinking bitter medicine. So I was confused because what has bitterness got to do with my wife giving birth? And he said both my wife and son died, just like that.
Those who were close to us knew how much I loved her. And so they found it difficult to break the news to me.
