Nigerian singer, Banky W and wife, Adesua Etomi Wellington have shared their miscarriage experience at the Waterbrook Church.
During a sermon at the Waterbrook Church on the 5th of April, Adesua Etomi narrated how she and her husband, Banky W lost their twins to miscarriage and emotional turmoil she went through after the miscarriage. She described the moment she felt something wasn’t right with the facial expression of the Doctor during one of her routine checkups at the hospital. She said;
“So we got pregnant and we got pregnant with twins. And we had gone for the scans, we had seen the heartbeats. At this point very few people knew what happened. Every report that you have heard was a lie because nobody knew what happened. So during a routine checkup, we went back to the hospital to have a scan and I just saw the doctor's face...you know when something is wrong, sometimes you can tell.”
"She was scanning and scanning and I was like what's wrong and she said 'oh nothing' and I looked at the nurse's face and asked what's wrong and she said 'Adesua' I'm looking for the heartbeats and I said 'for the two of them?.”
Adesua Etomi went further to talk about her reaction to the news on getting home. She revealed that she collapsed on getting home from the hospital with Banky W. She said;
“So I went home and I remember Banky not being around at that time and I remember collapsing on the floor wailing. Wailing is different from crying, it's like a deep groin in your chest. I'm sharing because many women go through this and nobody talks about it because it is almost like a thing of shame for whatever reason and I don't know why.”
“So we said we were going to pray over the weekend and go back for the scan on uesday or Monday can't remember now, hoping that God would do something.” Adesua added.
Banky W took over and talked about the fact that they discovered they didn’t only lose their babies but the twins had began to shrink in Adesua’s womb. He stated;
“Monday or Tuesday can and we went for the scan, not only did we not see heartbeats but the embryos were shrinking, they were decaying. When we found out we were losing them and we needed to do an evacuation, it was a very emotional time for her.”
Adesua spoke about how she discovered she was pregnant after months of prayers and dreams of her carrying her baby. The couple recently welcomed their son, Zaiah Wellington.
