THE MUCH ADO ABOUT OTHER TYPES OF BIRTH
After several years without natural conception, The Bankole’s opted to try assisted reproductive technology through in vitro fertilization and succeeded in conceiving twin boys.
Fertility issues, other birth mediums and child adoptions are difficult topics to raise in Nigeria and Africa due to the influence of culture. Childbirth is a very special moment in a woman’s life and the family at large. No one should be denied the opportunity to hold a newborn in her arms if they can afford one.
Nollywood actress,Ufuoma McDermott had her son exactly two years ago through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), and she wants the world to know it’s no big deal.
Writing on her Instagram, the actress shared a message for those who look down on women who have their children through other forms of birth.
DO NOT DENY YOURSELF …If you so desire, the joy of #motherhood .
My son was born EXACTLY 2 And half years after we got married.
I wanted to wait. My husband obliged.
When we were ready, I wanted twins.
#IVF was the choice. We could afford it.
I had two embryos inserted. God decided Isio would stay.
On the 10th of October 2012 my beautiful #IVFBaby was delivered by C-section. ❤
SO WHAT????😡 This post is for all of you keyboard cowards trying to downplay and devalue the joys of a child’s arrival into a new “world” whether it’s by #Surrogacy#Adoption #ArtificialInsemination#DonorSperm #DonorEgg #DonorEmbryo#GIFT Gamete intrafallopian transfer #ZIFTZygote intrafallopian transfer … You are just illiterate chickens.
And to my fine women and men out there who wish on parenthood, there are options. Speak to your doctor and don’t let any illiterate chicken in the society stop you from pouring all that love unto a child no matter what method you decide on.
Our society needs to wake up and appreciate the knowledge God has bestowed on doctors and medical practitioners.
#InternationalChildrensDay was yesterday, but I choose to celebrate all our children everyday.
