Nigerian on-air personality, Tolulope Oniru-Demuren popularly known as Toolz took to Instagram to recount why she feared for the worst outcome while pregnant with her first son who just turned 2.
According to the mother-of-two, while she was pregnant with ‘Chairman’ as she addressed him, she was scared that something would go wrong again just like it did when her first pregnancy that ended devastatingly with a stillbirth.
In one episode of the Life Lessons talkshow with Betty Irabor in June of this year, 38-year-old Toolz told the publisher during their chat that she struggled with disbelief and agony while recovering from the loss of her infant.
She said durng the chat:
The doctors kept conducting more scans and tried what they could but a final scan showed the baby was no longer moving and she was told she’ll have to push the baby out.
At the final scan, she said she had some sort of “spiritual awakening”.
“I heard a voice saying ‘this isn’t going to work out but you’re going to be OK’.”
“That was horrible, the day that I did the scan and there was just like nothing. When we did the last scan, there was nothing, like, no movement, nothing.”
“Oh my gosh, it was horrible, it was absolutely horrible,”
