Nollywood actress Georgina Onuoha has spoken of the issues she faced while pregnant and after giving birth to her first child.
She took to Instagram to confess how she suffered from depression, while reminiscing on the time she gave birth to her daughter who is now 12 years old. According to her, at that time she had just moved to another country and was lonely with a partner who had a very demanding job.
“Memory lane. 12 years ago with Chigozie at arm and 7 months heavily pregnant with Chimezie. I was tired, homesick and depressed. Barely 8 months in a new country, no friends, no family, I was a loner with a partner who was always extremely busy with work as a medical doctor. Life was rough and of course, like most new mom I suffered postpartum depression and isolation. Thank God my mom had to leave everything to come to stay with me till my baby was born and she left two weeks after that.
“Having two infants at arms is not for the faint of heart. Baby blues was my partner and tears overwhelmed me daily.
