Nigerian talk show host and actress Tricia Eseigbe-Kerry has opened up on her childbirth and becoming a mother for the first time in 10 years.
Sharing her experience being childless for a decade in marriage with The Sun, Tricia revealed that luckily for her, there was no pressure from in-laws of her husband.
According to the proud mother, her husband and in-laws were supportive of her during her hard times and they treated her with love although she had not given birth.
“Fortunately, there was no pressure from my in-laws, my husband and family. I have a very superb family support system, which helped in coping as well.
I know it is not the case with everyone and I would like to use this medium to plead with our society not to pressure women that are experiencing the same challenges like I did, because it is a very difficult journey which does not require unnecessary pressure from in-laws, family and friends.
There are so many things physically, mentally and medically that these women are going through. These are parts of the things that motivated me in setting up my foundation about women and children christened, Boldfaces Women & Children Development Initiative. I truly pray that people will give women that are looking for the fruits of the womb more positive support,”.
