Nigerian Dad Whose Wife Slumped and Died While Breastfeeding Their Newborn Whom They Waited 8 Years To Have Shares Their Emotional Story

A Nigerian dad has taken to Twitter to lament the loss of his darling wife who passed away quite shockingly on April 5, 2020.

According to @maxifish, he and his wife waited the first four years after their wedding trying to have a baby without luck. When they eventually had their first child, they tried even harder to have a second one; praying, fasting and standing by each other. Their faith finally paid off after 8 years of having their first child and his wife put to bed three weeks ago.

An elated @maxifish took to Twitter to announce the arrival of their daughter, sharing that the new mum and newborn were well and happy.

On March 17, @maxifish tweeted:

“We had Natachi 8 yrs ago…had to wait 4yrs before she came…she was worth the wait. Since then we had prayed, cried & fasted for another.

Today, 17th Mar(St. Patrick’s day), Chetachi was born. Cheta, Nata, Chweety & I are doing fine. Thank you Jesus!!!! Ever faithful God!!!”

“So…it’s been about 3 weeks since Cheta was born…what a glorious Tuesday it was…unfortunately, she lost her mom…my Wife…I lost my Chweety @sabnk…she slumped and died while breastfeeding her yesterday…please say a prayer for her soul.”

  • This is so bittersweet and sad. Oh Death, why did you have to take her soul at this time of their joyous moment, but who am I to question God. May God grant her Eternal Rest and grant the family fortitude to bear this loss.
    But can an underlying health issue cause her death?
