Woman Gives Birth To Triplets After 11 Years Of Marriage And “6 Mɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs” 

Helen and Emmanuel Ogeah married on April 5, 2010, at the All Saints Anglican Church, Kebu, Asaba, Delta State. She was already pregnant and had expected that in a few months time from then, she would carry their child or children. But things didn’t turn out as planned because she ʟᴏsᴛ the pregnancy at four months.

She said, “I got married on April 5, 2010 at the All Saints Anglican Church, Kebu, Asaba, Delta State. We were joined by Reverend Canon Chukwudi Ekpemuka and Reverend Umeh. I was expecting to have a baby after nine months. But I ʟᴏsᴛ the baby at four months.’’

After ʟᴏsɪɴɢ the pregnancy, she said it became difficult to get pregnant again. She kept trying for a while with no positive result. But after a few months, her ᴘʀᴀʏᴇʀs ᴡᴇʀᴇ ᴀɴsᴡᴇʀᴇᴅ. But the joy was also short-lived. She told Sunday PUNCH that she ʟᴏsᴛ the pregnancy again and the ᴍɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇ ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ continued for 11 years alongside ᴏᴛʜᴇʀ ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴs.

She stated, “After I ʟᴏsᴛ the first pregnancy, I didn’t get pregnant immediately but after a few months, I got pregnant again but my joy was short-lived when I ʟᴏsᴛ the pregnancy too. The Mɪsᴄᴀʀʀɪᴀɢᴇs continued and the ᴡᴏʀsᴛ was when I ʟᴏsᴛ one at six months. The embryos were either ᴇᴠᴀᴄᴜᴀᴛᴇᴅ ᴏʀ ᴡᴀs ʀᴇᴍᴏᴠᴇᴅ ᴛʜʀᴏᴜɢʜ ᴛʜᴇ ɴᴏʀᴍᴀʟ ᴅᴇʟɪᴠᴇʀʏ ᴘʀᴏᴄᴇss.

“It was a difficult time for me, physically, emotionally and mentally. The ᴛʀᴀᴜᴍᴀ of ʟᴏsɪɴɢ pregnancies, going into the labour room to give birth to a ᴅᴇᴀᴅ ᴄʜɪʟᴅ ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ᴏʀᴅᴇᴀʟ of people asking me what happened after the protruded belly went down were really ᴘᴀɪɴFᴜʟ.  In fact, the doctor told me that I could never carry a child again and that it was better for me to adopt a child. I got home feeling dejected and broke the news to my husband. I thank my husband for his encouragement. He always told me not to worry that Gᴏᴅ’s report was different from that of man.’’She stated

Helen said she tried not to see the issue as a sᴘɪʀɪᴛᴜᴀʟ ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇ as her husband repeatedly assured her that with technology, they could have their own children. According to her, her sadness ended when Gᴏᴅ led her to an Abuja-based doctor who Gᴏᴅ used to end their years of childlessness.

Helen added, “After a friend recommended a hospital in Abuja to me, I went there with her after discussing with my husband.  The doctor in charge told me that I had no problem and all I needed to do was to ᴜɴᴅᴇʀ ɢᴏ sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ. I ᴜɴᴅᴇʀᴡᴇɴᴛ sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ  in March 2020 and returned home two days before the COVID-19 ʟᴏᴄᴋᴅᴏᴡɴ.

“After the sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ, he told me to rest for some weeks. Thankfully, I ᴍɪssᴇᴅ ᴍʏ ᴘᴇʀɪᴏᴅ in August. Two weeks after confirmation that I was pregnant, I started ʙʟᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ ᴀɢᴀɪɴ. I thought I ᴡᴏᴜʟᴅ ʟᴏsᴇ the pregnancy. I then went for an ᴜʟᴛʀᴀsᴏᴜɴᴅ sᴄᴀɴ. Tʜᴇ sᴄᴀɴ sʜᴏᴡᴇᴅ ᴛʜʀᴇᴇ sᴀᴄs ɪɴᴅɪᴄᴀᴛɪɴɢ ᴛʜʀᴇᴇ ʙᴀʙɪᴇs. I ᴡᴀs sᴀᴅᴅᴇɴᴇᴅ by the development. I asked the doctor that I had been unable to carry a baby to term, how would I carry three?

“He assured me that I would succeed. I was ᴀᴅᴍɪᴛᴛᴇᴅ ᴀᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ʜᴏsᴘɪᴛᴀʟ from the first month till I was delivered of the three babies through ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ in March 2021.” The woman noted that her in-laws stood by her during the tribulations. A family member, Evelyn Odume, who couldn’t contain her joy as she shared the good news on her Facebook.
