In a post on Instagram, Mabel Makun revealed that she suffered from three miscarriages prior. She added that there were no medical explanations.

She added that despite falling pregnant again she did not have an easy journey to welcoming her new child. Her post was accompanied by a video which captured some moments from her pregnancy including a sonogram.

“Anal bleeding, threatened miscarriage, difficulty in breathing, I wasn’t psychologically and mentally stable and that was the hardest part for me. My emotions were all over the place, taking a deep breath in and out to stop myself every time I felt the urge to just break down and cry, struggling within not to blame myself for not protecting and fighting for the survival of the babies I lost, placenta separation, weak uterus,” she added.

Mrs. Makun stated that the journey was not an easy one adding that she was exhausted. She thanked God, friends and family for their goodwill messages and prayers.”

“How I got here today is not something that I can explain but I just know that God was and is still with me and Ayomide, for this we are eternally grateful.”
