In a video shared on social media, Makula said the bone forms the glabella was flat when the son was born.

The doctor immediately asked Susan Makula if she had drunk alcohol while pregnant.

Makula said she drank too much because she was under so much stress at the time.

She, however, noted that some of the side effects have been treated and the son is okay.

"The moment the doctor saw him he asked me, did you drink alcohol when you were pregnant?" said Makula.

"I told him I didn't drink a little, I had a blast with it... I was at a point where I had given up... I drank to the extent that even when I had just given birth they brought me four cans of Castle Lager."

Susan Makula, who got pregnant while at Makerere University, said she was drinking to forget some of her problems.

At Makerere University, she was pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce. She dropped out after getting pregnant in her second year.
