Dorcas Osiebo, a 58-year-old woman, has given birth to her first child after 35 years of trying to conceive.
Mrs Osiebo, who delivered her baby on December 2019, said she did not believed when a nurse confirmed her pregnancy.
Her words: “the nurse looked at my face and said, ‘Mummy, to God be the glory, you are pregnant. I was very surprised”.
Osiebo 58, got married to Christopher Osiebo, 64, in 1984. These couple has been trying to conceive in their 35-year-old union.
“I got married in January 1984, some of the people who got married the same year with us have children; even my immediate younger sister has grandchildren,” Mrs Osiebo said.
We sought help from both the traditional and orthodox medical practices but there was no respite. I entered menopause in 2006.
“I drank a lot of concoctions (herbal mixtures) in my effort to get pregnant.
She confessed to be taking a lots of things but all to no avail.
“An operation was carried out at the hospital and I came back home but no solution, rather, since the operation was carried out, My period ceased.
“When I told my husband that I was pregnant, he didn’t believe it at first. But I discovered that I no longer like to eat some of my best foods and my clothes no longer sized me,” she explained
“But by the grace of God today, a baby boy has entered this family; that is the cause of my joy. I am very happy, I thank God,” the husband submitted.
