Veteran television hostess, Nana Adwoa Awindor has advised women to not see pregnancy as a hindrance to the pursuit of their desired careers.

Speaking about her work as a videographer for the then First Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings, Awindor said she continued to work hard even while she was eight months pregnant.

According to the ‘Greetings from Abroad’ hostess, it was upon the intervention of the former First Lady that she finally took a break to attend to her pregnancy and subsequent delivery.

“At a point in time, I was following Nana Konadu to do community engagements. I held my camera, and I was eight months pregnant.

“She went on tours to talk to women. One day, when we got to Atimpoku, she called me and said I was pregnant and I didn’t deny it.

“She told me it’s not normal and advised me to drop off. I was on camera shooting, and I was not lazing around. I had to be ahead of her all the time. There was no tripod, so you will always stand akimbo, and there was no time,” she narrated.

Nana Awindor, who was speaking on Adom TV’s Ahosepe Xtra, attributed her subsequent success and fame on TV to hard work.

“These things all happened while I was still making babies and I have two boys. So there is nothing you cannot do with pregnancy. You can still do your work. It doesn’t have to get scary. You can do it”, she said.
