A Nigerian lady, Cynthia Adaeze Chinule has recounted how she prayed her pregnancy back to life when she thought she had lost it.
According to her, she experienced a heavy flow of blood when she was 3 months pregnant and the doctors could do nothing but watch.
She revealed that she did just the right thing – Prayer.
Read her story as posted on her Facebook page below:
“My darling daughter is 3months today.
I remember thinking we lost her when I was 3months pregnant and i found myself in a pool of blood.
I just called my husband from the room and saying ‘there’s blood everywhere, the baby!’
And he said ‘what happened to the baby?’
And in tears I said ‘see blood everywhere, its the baby’
He said ‘that’s not my child blood. Stand up and clean yourself up. Where is your faith?! Stop talking anyhow. Dont see blood and say it’s my child. My child is fine’
We called the hospital and went there for a scan…
…And really, that’s wasnt out Baby’s blood but my own blood.
That was the placenta detaching from the womb and a mass of blood being discharged following that.
Our baby was fine and strong and kicking and the doctor’s report was ‘there is a heartbeat today, but we can’t guarantee anything. There is nothing we can do. We will just watch and hope the placenta doesn’t go out completely with the baby’.
But we KNEW WHAT TO DO.
Oh, for this child we prayed!

I’m sharing this to encourage anyone thinking you are helpless or in a bad situation, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO!
The newly wed Big Brother Naija former housemate revealed that some women might have had miscarriages, or are even going through other issues in their lives, but are constantly reminded about pregnancy by the association of womb watchers.
She stated that women are not only baby making machines, and therefore, the decision to raise a family should be solely dependent on the couple.
“The way I’m looking at the next person who drops a pregnancy comment on my post. Continue reading if you don’t want to get BLOCKED. (I’m not joking).
“I’ve ignored them for the longest now but according to the womb watchers on social media I have been pregnant for over a YEAR. So let me get this off my heart. Some people have flat stomachs naturally and some people have big stomachs naturally. The latter is ME. And when I’m on my period it is even BIGGER. I don’t owe anyone a flat stomach but still I try to suck in my belly in every single picture and sometimes I do it better than others. The worst is that even when I’m proud of my ‘sucking in skills’ on a particular picture there is always SOMEONE who still comments something about pregnancy. This is a habit that HAS TO STOP.
“First of all, women are more than baby making machines. A woman’s fertility or decision to start a family is for her to decide, not for you to comment on in every single picture… Must our stomachs always be the first thing you look at?? 🧐
“Secondly, I’m not just speaking up for myself but for women in general. You may mean well when making pregnancy remarks but it is not always a compliment. For women who have had miscarriages, have been trying unsuccessfully for a baby, or simply conscious about their weight it can be very distressing, triggering and also puts a lot of undue pressure on them. So unless someone has announced a pregnancy or told you then please be nice and DONT COMMENT OR CONGRATULATE them on one.
“Trust me when the time is right I welcome pregnancy (twins please Lord!👶🏽👶🏽) and starting a family at God’s time. But until I’ve said I’m expecting please stop with the pregnancy comments. I’ll have no patience for them anymore and any one who writes such comments will get BLOCKED.
“To those who mean well, thank you so much, I do love you all💛 But to the amebos please be amebos elsewhere 😁. It’s pressure enough being a woman, so let’s not add to it. Happy Sunday.”
Popular singer, Tiwa Savage has lambasted Pulse Nigeria after one of its editors published an article attacking the singer’s brand.
Motolani Alake, one of Pulse NG’s writers had written an opinionated article about Tiwa Savage’s music tagged “failing career.”
This however was followed with a series of backlash as Tiwa called out the journalist on Twitter, and now finally attacked the media house directly.
Quoting one of Pulse’s article on Twitter, the mother of one wrote;
“I’m glad you know it’s YOU guys I was talking about. “Because say I quiet no mean say I be fool” – don’t try and turn nigerian media against me to hide your guilty conscience. Ask all the media houses I have great relationships with them. What you did with this is pure EVIL.”
