Generally, it is a medical norm that a pregnant woman, puts to bed after 9 months of carrying the baby, but this wasn’t the case for Taiwo Lawal.
The Nigerian lady became a mum as she delivered a baby girl at 9:00 am on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 after 6 years of being pregnant.
Taiwo said she at one point considered running in the way of an oncoming trailer out of frustration.
Speaking exclusively with Legit.ng, the new mum said it still comes as a surprise to her that she recently delivered a baby.

“The journey wasn’t that easy. It was so tough… So so tough.”Everything started three months after I noticed that I was pregnant. “The pregnancy was positive during the first three months until I had a dream where I was shot in my tummy.”It was after that dream that problem started with the pregnancy,” the new mum recounted to Legit.ng.
