A Nigerian woman, Cynthia Adaeze Chinule, has revealed how prayers saved her pregnancy when she thought she had lost the baby.
She shared her story via Facebook as her daughter turns 3 months old, in order to encourage others experiencing terrifying situations.
Cynthia said she bled profusely when she was 3 months pregnant and assumed she had a miscarriage.
But her husband’s faith kicked in and he refused to believe the baby has been lost.
The new mum said she visited the hospital for a scan and the baby was said to be fine, but doctors were unable to guarantee that she would carry the pregnancy till full term because the placenta was slowly detaching from the womb.
Cynthia stated that rather than give, they fell back to prayers until the baby was born safely.
Read her full story;
“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 wasn’t 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!
