Nigerian fashion stylist, Toyin Lawani has narrated how she was able to recuperate after losing her fourth child.
Toyin Lawani shared a video on her verified Instagram page, showing off her fourth baby bump and her third child, Leora.
Narrating her painful experience, Toyin Lawani disclosed that she had undergone numerous surgeries, including fibroid surgeries, arthritis, and others.
Contrary to how people viewed her quick recovery after her third child through surgery, Toyin Lawani revealed she had to get back on her feet because she hates showing weakness.
“Thanks to everyone who reached out ,
God bless u all,
Losing An unborn child can be the most difficult trauma to deal with , cause u would have Bonded & started making plans for the future ,
I have always said I wanted to have just 2kids.”
“Then my doc advised me to take out my womb out due to the Complications I was having,
I dealt with a lot, multiple fibroid surgeries, arthritis, backache , neck pains, side pains, a times I would literally wake
up paralyzed, I wear a neck brace daily but when in public I take it off, too many questions.
“So went for the 3rd baby again, At Least before I do the final surgery from my last pregnancy, i found out I had a cyst in my Brian cause the headaches were super & back pains tripled. I got doctors opinions in Nigeria they said ‘we can’t treat you till you have this baby, best thing is take the baby out & we will get you the care u need.
this time, I was already attached I said no and went abroad, they managed d situation till I had d baby, which was why they said I couldn’t have it naturally like my other kids. i got back on my feet in no time, months after my legs, my bones gave way ,d pain was too much and i went back abroad they said my bones were degenerating due to the pressure.”
Lawani added that she could not walk after undergoing a surgery.
“At this point my legs were swollen, I couldn’t walk ,
this was a few days to my 40th birthday party in Nigeria ,I had so many plans for my 40th but I said nothing, opted for prayer for my late mom.
“Few months forward, I found out I was pregnant again ,this wasn’t planned at all & i and hubby agreed not to tell any one ,cause we weren’t sure ,even when my friends told me i am pregnant, I will just laugh about it.
‘And say no it’s not there ,unfortunately I got so stressed, depressed, started bleeding as usual, cause I bleed having all my kids from day one till due date, so felt it was normal ,but it took a huge turn& I lost it. In the process I heard I need a spine surgery I’m like how old, I was so broken.
Anyways I have lost so many things in life’
