Facing challenges with conceiving in a marriage is a topic that needs to be addressed and understood with sensitivity and compassion. In my opinion, it is crucial that we debunk the old stereotype of automatically blaming the woman for not being able to conceive.
T. Y Bello recently opened up about her struggles with infertility, shedding light on the emotional hardships that women face in this situation.
In an interview with Pulse Nigeria, Bello shared her personal story, emphasizing that trying to conceive and being in the waiting room can be one of the most difficult phases for women. She recounted how those around her constantly bombarded her with insensitive comments, suggesting that getting pregnant should be an easy task. This only added to the already challenging journey she and her husband were going through, often leading to tears and heartache.
Striking a chord with me, Bello emphasized the fact that the journey to motherhood begins the moment a woman decides she wants to be a mother. Her words highlighted the immense dedication, hope, and longing that women in this situation experience and we are more than grateful that she overcame.
To all the women out there currently in the waiting room, going through the emotional roller coaster of trying to conceive, please know that you are not alone. The inability to have children in a marriage is not necessarily the woman’s fault, and it is vital to break free from this outdated mindset. Understanding and support are crucial during this challenging time, both from loved ones and within the society as a whole.
We stand in solidarity with every woman who is facing the trials of not being able to conceive in marriage. We believe in your strength, resilience, and the possibility of a victorious outcome. Remember that your worth and value as a woman are not defined by your ability to conceive and that there are numerous paths to finding fulfillment and happiness in life.
A toast to all our strong Women, shall we?
