Actress & Mom-Of-1, Adaora Ukoh Recounts: ”My 20 hours experience in labour room”

Adaora Ukoh -Abumere is famous for her daring roles in the Nigerian entertainment industry. The Lekki Housewives star who had her first child three years ago recently opened up to Inside Nollywood on her labour room experience and the challenges of motherhood as an entertainer.

During the interview, the plus-sized thespian, who a few months ago produced her third movie after several years in front of the camera, narrated:

“It was tough at the beginning, but my son is grown now and can fight for himself. He has a mind of his own, and totally independent, so his nanny does the rest.

But whenever his father is on vacation, I maximize the time. So, it doesn’t change anything as long as it’s my work”.

Recalling her labour room experience while birthing her son, Jermaine Ehize AbuMere who turned three in March, the actress-turned filmmaker revealed how she almost passed out in the process. The big, bold and beautiful mama continues:

“When it was time to give a push to my baby, my strength failed, as I have been in labour for 20 hours. I had low blood pressure and the doctors had to resort to oxygen.

For me, labour room experience is quite unforgettable. I felt like a zombie for three days. However, when I saw my baby, the heart piercing pain disappeared. Well, that’s the joy of motherhood. It’s a life changing experience”.
