This is my story.

To God is the glory for granting me save delivery. I cannot hide what the Lord has done in my life, even though I was expecting to have a normal birth but then through the C-section my Lord glorified himself immensely. The waiting period after my due date was a trying period for me. I had told God I do not want another CS because of the terrible experience I had when our first child was delivered through CS at a general hospital. I had terrible pains for weeks and it took me awhile before I could do a lot of things on my own, even taking care of my baby. But God’s ways are not our ways, and the situation made me realise that, safe delivery for me is having my baby alive and healthy and being alive and healthy also without complications from the operation.

The baby was due but no labour in sight, and due to the previous delivery through CS, it was not possible to induce labour according to what the doctors told me. We waited until the 42nd week of pregnancy before we finally decided to go in for an elective CS. The operation went well as God took perfect control. With the recovery from anaesthetic came the pain but even through it I remembered the reason I was in that condition, and the first word I uttered was, where is my baby? I want to see my baby and after seeing her I gave all glory to God. She is a bundle of joy!

Let me say here that, in this part of the world, some people still believe that delivery through operation is a taboo. It simply portrays the woman has not been woman enough to have a normal delivery and so I have been reluctant and quite embarrassed to say I have another CS. But God through my hubby made me realise that there is nothing to be ashamed of, and would they prefer death to delivery through CS? Moreover I am not accountable to anyone but God. So when they asked me is it another CS, so condescendingly, I simply reply thank God for safe delivery.

My joy is full because I got what I asked God for, a baby girl. Some are not so fortunate, women have been known to die during labour, some have been known to have lost their lives during operation, others have been known to have serious complications that results in the death of their unborn child. It is not that I’m worthy or that the doctors were good but God in his infinite mercy has made me victorious and that is the reason why we named her PRAISE.

To god is the glory forever and ever (Amen).

Hi Bola this is so typical of Nija but the thing is our God is able and He knows what is good for His Children so that is the main thing is that He delivered you from it and Glory to God today you are a mum the second time.

Godbless

Hey, Sister. It is nice to have you back in good health, sound mind and the evidence of God's faithfulness (the new baby).
Rejoice and be glad for He that watches over Israel neither sleep nor slumber.

As for the ignorant ones that are looking down on your method of delivery, my simple advice is that you simply ignore them. If they understand what it is like, they will not dare open their mouth.

I witness my wife suffer pain for almost 24hours when she was laboring for our first child. When the doctor eventually, asked me to consent that she should be operated, I did so immediately because I wasn't going to let her die.

I don't see anything wrong with ceasarian operation, it is unfortunate that some brethren think that if God does not perform miracle, it means the folks involved are faithless. That is a lie from the pit of hell. Be encouraged. If you care, i will gladly give you my wife's phone number, she may have some word of encouragement better than I do. But be rest assured that the Lord knows what He is doing. His plans and purpose for your life and your family is the BEST anyone can ever wish for. Shalom.

Congrats once more Bola. We thank God for the safe delivery he gave to you. Just forget about those making side comments about you doing CS twice, it is non of their business, they don't want to wake up to the real world. The most important thing is, you are alive, baby is alive and father is alive as well. God is worthy to be praise.

Take care of baby, I hope to see her one of these days.........maybe if my baby that I am expecting turns out to be a boy he has already gotten a wife. She smiles.......................

Remain bless
