A Nigerian woman, Cynthia Adaeze Chinule has recounted how her prayers helped her carry and birth her baby despite a scary issue with the placenta three months into her pregnancy. Cynthia shared that she thought she had suffered a painful miscarriage when she saw the amount of blood coming out of her at the time.
According to her, she experienced a heavy flow of blood, and the doctors could do nothing but watch. She said when she called her husband during the emergency, he was equally perplexed and all he could ask was ”where’s the baby?”.
Chinule said in response to her husband, she pointed to the pool of blood but says they came together and did the right thing at the moment – Pray.
The happy mum believes it was the prayer that made all the difference and she asks others to pray in difficult times.
Read her story as posted on her Facebook page below:
“My darling daughter is 3months today.
I remember thinking we lost her when I was 3months pregnant and i found myself in a pool of blood.
I just called my husband from the room and saying ‘there’s blood everywhere, the baby!’
And he said ‘what happened to the baby?’
And in tears I said ‘see blood everywhere, its the baby’
He said ‘that’s not my child blood. Stand up and clean yourself up. Where is your faith?! Stop talking anyhow. Dont see blood and say it’s my child. My child is fine’
We called the hospital and went there for a scan…
…And really, that’s wasnt out Baby’s blood but my own blood
That was the placenta detaching from the womb and a mass of blood being discharged following that.
Our baby was fine and strong and kicking and the doctor’s report was ‘there is a heartbeat today, but we can’t guarantee anything.
There is nothing we can do. We will just watch and hope the placenta doesn’t go out completely with the baby’.
But we KNEW WHAT TO DO.
Oh, for this child we prayed!
