A 25-year old pregnant woman reached out to Sophia Momodu on how to go about her pregnancy as her mother is late and her dad has another family.
Although, her boyfriend asked her to keep the baby she doesn’t know how she’s going to cope with her condition, the society and still live her life.
She shared 6 things with the woman, including not allowing anybody shame her.
I honestly don’t know what I’d have done with myself if I didn’t have the kind of support system (family & friends) I have. Thru out my pregnancy & afterwards even though 95% of my friends found out via social media after I had my baby….
Most of em just wanted to know if I was ok, some were mad at me but they soon got over it.
1; I’d say if you do keep your baby, don’t keep your pregnancy a secret from your family (it does things to your mind eventually. Cant go into details now lol.)
2; don’t let anybody shame you. Nobody has the how to live life right handbook.
3; educate yourself on post partum depression cos it’s a hell of a ride especially if you’re clueless. (its real af!)…..
4; focus on your baby by trying to stay happy no matter what (you don’t want a moody baby and trust me, a happy baby makes it easier on those hard days). 5; pray, speak positive words into your new journey. It goes a long way.
6; keep your head up (its no longer about just you). Tough times don’t last. Don’t worry boo, God’s got you. One time my best friend told me God pays special attention to the prayer of a pregnant woman. I swear I think its true. I’m praying for you. And I hope you have an easy delivery.
