In a recent article on her blog, proud mother of three boys and talented Nollywood actress, Omoni Oboli celebrates motherhood and has a word for women who desire to have children but haven’t been able to.
Here is an excerpt;
Yesterday I had a very interesting meeting with two of my sister friends Uche Rodriguez and Ufuoma McDermott. We celebrated the birth of their babies, we spent many hours talking about how to move our beloved Nollywood forward and we also talked about pregnancy, the child birth process and all women go through having babies. In all, we agreed that it’s a joy to have these beautiful kids that God has given us.
You see, there is no ‘wrong’ way to give birth. If you had virginal births, great! If you had to be induced or you had a Ceasarian birth, all good and fine! The most important thing is that the baby came out and baby and mom are fine!
My heart always goes out to women who have difficulties having babies. Some women don’t want kids and that’s ok but for those who do and can’t take in for whatever reason, even though I don’t know that pain first hand, I always ache for them.
I don’t understand why the society still frowns on alternative ways of getting pregnant. I always advice women, if you’ve been married for over a year or two and you are not getting pregnant (assuming you want babies) seek medical help!
There’s no point waiting for ten years. If getting pregnant through intercourse is not working, by all means try IVF or whatever your doctor advises. When all else fails, you can always adopt and love that child like you would a child that has your DNA. I’m not saying you shouldn’t pray and believe God for miracles. I always pray for women who want kids that God will meet them at the point of their need. May He answer everyone aching for a baby speedily and may your joy be full!
