“Once your baby is born, you will forget the labour pain”
LIES! Once my baby is born, I didn’t forget the pain. Instead I knew it was worth it. I was ready to go through it again for this precious child of mine. But you don’t forget the pain.. duh?! Who does?
I give kudos to women who were induced and had no kind of medication for pain relief administered through out their labour period.
Here’s my story
I was induced because my water broke but I was not in pain(Boi, was I deceiving myself? Yep). I was smiling and the nurses were smiling right back. I thought I was extremely lucky, telling myself “so that’s all and women will be screaming as if they are about to die.. long hisssss”.
After several minutes, (thanks to induction), a pain that is indescribable came upon me. All I know is that it felt like I was going to die. I was given the ‘laughing gas’ ( I hope that’s what it is). It didn’t work one bit. It seemed it made the pain worse. I started screaming for epidural. It felt like I was waiting for a life time.
Finally, after so much delay, I was given the epidural and few minutes later(which felt like hours), I was relieved and even slept off for awhile.
Several hours after epidural, I still wasn’t fully dilated and according to the doctor, my baby’s heart rate was dropping; the doctor gave my husband and I just 30 minutes to prepare our mind for a cesarean operation. So we prayed, cried abit (I dont even know why because we all know C.S is very safe nowadays). Maybe the tears were caused by first-time-parent-syndrome.
Moving along,we asked for God’s will to be done.
Then we permitted the doctor to proceed.
However, while they were bringing in the medical equipments needed for the operation, the doctor decided to check my cervix again. I dilated from 4cm to 10cm within 30 mins! He looked up and said he has never experienced such and I was ready to push. I pushed for about 10 mins, and baby was out. The placenta was tied around her neck twice and her arm once!
What can I say, that was God’s miracle. Nothing more.
Don’t tell me scientific facts…. that was God and only God.
I will also use this opportunity to ask women to buy a book called “The supernatural childbirth”. It is for every lady who wants to have children or plans to have more kids some day, no matter what the doctor/science says.
God really helped me through this book. It has a lot of prayer verses in regards to fertility, pregnancy and child birth. It also contains testimonies of people who have experienced infertility and/or pregnancy complications, but combated them through prayers and the Word of God.
I can be a scary cat but God developed my confidence after reading this book. Grab a copy on Amazon
Thanks for reading Tinuola’s Baby is Born, a miracle!
