Nollywood actress, Etinosa Idemudia has shared her miscarriage experience and how she battled with failing pregnancies for seven years.
Etinosa Idemudia who welcomed her bundle of joy a few weeks ago spoke to Sunday Scoop in an exclusive interview revealed that she was two months into her pregnancy before she knew about it.
According to the nursing mother, she endured a pregnancy full of risks and suffered a condition called the Polycystic ovary syndrome.
Reported by Kemi Filani news,
I did not keep my pregnancy a secret, it was just a private affair, because my true friends, employers and family were very aware that I was pregnant.
“It was a high-risk pregnancy but God saw me through. I was two months gone before I knew I was pregnant. I would not even have known until much later if not that my long-time doctor and friend forced me to do a pregnancy test when I was busy treating ‘stubborn malaria’.”
“I waited for about seven years (before having this child). My advice to awaiting mothers is that they should take their minds off the issue and relax. It is a tough advice that almost sounds crazy but that was the advice I got from my sister-in-law years ago.
She is also a polycystic ovary syndrome conqueror. It worked back then but I lost the pregnancies. Then, I threw away her advice and naturally became anxious. Anxiety turned to desperation and I did take in again, even with the drugs I was taking then. It was not until last year that I finally learnt to relax. Let go and let God.”
