  • Some weeks back, a daddy suggested I give my rambunctious five year old son, the 3 am treatment. He asked that I wake him up at 3am, and have a heart-to-heart chat with him.

    I had this look on my face that […]

  • By the time, a woman has had her first child, she might most likely feel like a pro at the business of sex, especially as she was able to produce a human being from the sexual act. But the truth is, sex after […]

  • A few weeks ago, there was an online campaign by some women who believe that a woman that gives birth vaginally is superior to the one who gives birth via Caesarian Section (CS). I was appalled to read the […]

    • I’m proudly wearing my scar!
      People,especially women needs a change of mindset…i was a victim of PPD due to this same careless comments!Worse off,it came from my mother inlaw who flew in from Nigeria for Omugwo..and she didn’t even wait to get home before passing such comment as ‘You ate too much o,baby is too big,how could he have come out through VG”,this caused a huge fight between myself,her and my hubby,and of course she later denied ever making such comments,i was depressed for the first 1 month,but thankfully i was able to pull myself out and i’m much better now.
      People just need to understand that CS most times saves lives.I was induced at 39wks due to HBP and baby didn’t quit cope well with pitocin,hence an emergency CS was required.
      And my friend on the other hand labored for over 24hrs,got fully dilated,but her pevics was too small for baby to pass through..If you ask me,i felt no pains before or even after surgery,and my recovery was super fast (All Glory to God).
      CS for me o,any day any time…If it is medically necessary.

  • Infertility can drain the life out of a marriage, especially one that is not strong in the first place. For marriages considered stronger, then infertility will likely make it stronger…but only if both parties […]

    • Sending you hugs, Demilade. It’s painful when a marriage breaks up, and even more so when there is so much deception involved. Praying for you as you start a new journey and hoping you get your happy ending :hug:

  • I was having a rather uneventful day till Ama chose to pass by around midday. Ama and I have been friends since our university days, and we have not seen each other in a while so of course, I was happy to catch up […]

    • How can one deal with bitterness,resentment and anger when you discover in the ninth year of your marriage that your husband already have 3 sons(ages 5,3 and 2) from another woman while you are still trying to conceive

      • Oh my word! That’s absolutely heartbreaking and such a betrayal. Sending lots of hugs my dear. Is he remorseful? Is he trying to find a way to make things work? I’m so sorry my dear sister. May God give you the wisdom to make the best decision for you :hug:

      • You discovered in the Ninth year of your Marriage that Husband has 3sons(5,3,2years respectively) while yet to concieve as his Wife. Please, permit me to ask how you found out. He told you or someone told you or you are guessing. Nine years with 3sons outside marriage is no joke and you both might need counseling.

        • @pearl 5he mother of days kids called him around 10.30pm repeatedly, he was fast asleep so I picked to know who could be calling at such an odd time incessantly.

          • That’s a lot.
            I hope you find peace within yourself to come to terms with this while forgiving and moving on.

    • I totally agree with you, Rashida. I’m not a fan of this at all. The uterus has already gone through trauma from the C-section, and then putting it through the additional trauma and exertion of pushing just isn’t worth it.

  • They looked like a decent couple; colour coordinated their clothes even. They had two lovely children between them, and an enviable lifestyle, but nothing is as it seems between them.

    The basic fact is Bolu and […]
