A customer relations officer, Temilade Olasinde, talks about how she endured years of waiting before she gave birth with MOTUNRAYO JOEL
Tell us about yourself.
I am happily married with kids. I currently work as a customer relations officer with a private company. I am a Christian, a Roman Catholic to be precise and member of the Catholic Women Organisation of Nigeria.
Did you have it easy giving birth?
I had my own share of waiting for years before giving birth. I waited five years before having my second child. The years of waiting were trying times; I won’t say it was an easy period. I thank God for strength and determination He released upon me to wait. No one can understand what it feels like to wait for years before having a child, except the person has experienced such. Just when I thought I was done with child bearing, I had a child after 13 years.
What was the experience?
I was not expecting to be pregnant again. I believed I was done with childbearing and was waiting to nurse my siblings’ children. I was also looking forward to becoming a grandmother someday. I had given out all the baby things in the house that I had nothing left to give or to nurse a new baby. Thirteen years is a long period; I took my mind off getting pregnant. In my daily prayers, I prayed to God to answer the cry of those seeking His face for the fruit of the womb.
You mean you didn’t want to get pregnant again?No. I was done with childbearing.
How did you feel when you realised you were pregnant?
To my utmost surprise, I found out I was pregnant sometime in September last year. I actually felt really bad about it and wondered why the pregnancy didn’t go to one of the people I had been praying for. I broke the news to my husband who became happy and he started preparing for the baby’s arrival.
