Photo: Woman delivers baby from four-year-old pregnancy in Ogun

33-year-old Oluwabunmi and her 42-year-old husband, Bankole Ogidan both pictured above, welcomed their first child at a hospital in Ogun state on Wednesday January 27th from a pregnancy she reportedly carried for four years.

Narrating the unusual experience to The Nation, Bankole who has been married to Oluwabunmi since August 2011 said
“We were full of hope about having children and raising a complete family. But we had to wait till August 2013 before she got pregnant exactly two years after.
We went for pregnancy test and it was confirmed positive. A few days after, my wife complained that she was feeling pains in her womb. We went to a midwife who told us that the pain was not a problem; that the pregnancy was intact. I was not satisfied, so I took her to another hospital (name withheld) where we did a scan but the doctor said he didn’t see any pregnancy. The doctor said there had been a miscarriage. I asked him that shouldn’t there be an outflow of blood if she had a miscarriage? The doctor said yes. I told him that we had not witnessed anything like that and he was shocked.".
Worried by the doctor’s report, Bankole decided to seek spiritual help and so he went to meet with the pastor of his church, Prophet Emmanuel Ogbara, who assured him that God had told him the pregnancy was intact. A couple of weeks later, Bankole went back with his wife to the hospital but they were told that what she had in her womb was fibroid. They left for the General Hospital, Gbagada, where they were asked to see a gynaecologist. Again, the gynaecologist told them that what he saw in Oluwabunmi’s stomach was multiple fibroid with no chance of conception.
“All this while, my wife’s menstruation had ceased,” Bankole said. “It was only once after the pregnancy was sighted that we observed that little blood came out but stopped almost immediately. We left there for the Government Hospital in Owode, Ogun State. Thereafter, we returned for a scan session. The gynaecologist said there were three sets of fibroid where the baby ought to be, but that the way my wife looked, she appeared like a woman who was ready for delivery. He said he would act fast and do an x-ray that would reveal more. That was on March 25, 2014. We did the x-ray but we were told that though they believed in God, from all medical indications, there was no more pregnancy in the womb. They said the uterus was elongated, blocked with a concentration of urine fibroid and the white fallopian tube was outlined. They concluded that it was fibroid. I asked if she could get pregnant and they said no.”
Meanwhile, Oluwabunmi’s stomach had protruded as if she was due for delivery. Bankole said he could not even think of sleeping with his wife because of the delicate nature of her condition all through the period.
“There was pressure from all corners, family, friends and well-wishers, who all had their suggestions as to the solution. Some said we were hearing wrongly from God,” he said.
Asked if he was not afraid that his wife would die in the process of waiting for a baby, he said:
“I did not worry about death at all. I was only more inspired to wait on God. As a matter of fact, we stopped going for medical opinion. As far as we were concerned, they had no good news for us, so we resorted to our church and prayer. On the 10th of September, 2015, my wife became terribly ill with signs of labour. I had to look for any hospital in sight because her condition was bad. That was how we got to this hospital. After giving her the initial treatment, we were told to go for another scan. To the glory of God, the doctor here said he had seen a baby; that my wife was carrying four months pregnancy.”
But the mystery was how the pregnancy could be four months old when he was not making love to his wife, and his wife’s protruding stomach was there for all to see?
“At the church, the prophet confirmed again that the child had all along been there; only that scan could not pick it. So the hospital continued to nurture the baby for antenatal. But here again, they still saw fibroid in the womb. But to the glory of God 27th January this year, our baby finally arrived,” Bankole said.
But that was not all. During the delivery, the baby was said to have “got lost” in the womb.

The hospital’s matron said: “We had to do an operation. When we did, we found that contrary to scan reports, we met a different thing in the womb. It was a sac with pus inside. It was not fibroid. And looking inside, we didn’t see any baby. But I remembered that I used to hear sound inside Mrs Ogidan’s womb, so the doctor searched further; the baby was  hidden in the uterus. We thank God. It’s a miracle. The sac was so big that it swallowed up the uterus where the baby was. The sac was so big that the uterus could not be easily found. The doctor said he had never seen such a thing before.”

‎Speaking on the uniqueness of Oluwabunimi's pregnancy, Dr Sam Akinyemi, a consultant on naturopathic gynaecologist,
“This is an abnormal medical record. But nothing is impossible in this world. All homo sapiens must take note of that. It is the joy of every pregnant woman that at 40 weeks or before then, the woman must fall into labour. When it does not happen, it becomes a major concern to the physician and the patient herself. In natural medical gynaecology, we have had cases of that nature. It can be the result of retardation in hormonal production in the pregnant patient or mother. And metaphysically, nature won’t seize to amaze us in its power.”

There are some faults in this account, in my years of practice in an obstetrics and gynaecology department of a specialist hospital I've never heard or read about the term "urine fibroid", it just doesn't exist. Many women carry fibroids and think there are pregnant due to the increase in size, some end up getting pregnant with the fibroids insitu. A few need surgery to deliver the baby, others have a normal delivery. It is impossible to carry a pregnancy for 4 years, God didn't design humans like that. Congrats to them.

if you didn't sleep with your wife in that period, My bro go do DNA THAT child is not yours.
You can be pregnant for up to 42 weeks. After that the plcenta will start to die and detach. At 12 months the baby would be dead. Doctor dee.

Lord! Let me help out here Lin.In summary this woman had fibroids 4 years ago big enough to make her stomach protrude. She got pregnant two years after which resulted in a miscarriage. Then got pregnant again and was delivered by a CS even though there were complications(long standing fibroid degeneration,subsequent infection leading to pus accumulation maybe??). We thank God. 4 years pregnancy my big yellow ass.

Please if you are "pregnant" for more than 9 months seek professional help.this post is misleading and these beliefs contribute to the poor health education our people have on so many issuses.

They should better do a DNA test on the mother and child before it becomes like the woman that came on ebony live TV to say she had 8 children within 1 year. In the end she shares no DNA with them, she's a pastor.
After 4 years, that child will not look like that. Atleast the skin.

I agree with you. This story is all hogwash! It's possible she got fibroid then got pregnant, but this carrying of a baby for 4yrs is fiction.

Hmm the way I see it. These people relied on the wrong channels. A midwife, a church prophet or pastor without medical training. There is a reason why God gave us the wisdom to train doctors. Pastors are not doctors....they should pray for you while the specialists are taking care of your health in the hospital not give you the advice on what to do medically. The so called midwife was not equipped to handle such a case. The matron saying she heard sounds doesn't sound well trained either. Seek medical help in the right places. Would you go to a doctor to build your house? Or a tailor to simply make your hair? No. Why meet a religious for medical consultations.

Anyone who believes this story is either brain damaged or has a very low IQ. This is NOT a miracle of any sort. If the lady was pregnant 4 yrs ago and a few months later tested negative without bleeding, it is possible that the body absorbed the embryo. If she did have fibroids which are common in black females, she could have a distended abdomen or pseudocyeisis (false pregnancy symptoms). If this baby was just born and the husband says he wasn't having sex with his wife, a DNA test is obviously needed. Heck, I would DNA test both of them just in case it isn't even hers.
Moral of the story, we need to wake up and begin using our brains to fact check these dubious claims. There are some things that might defy current understanding but any pregnancy that lasts longer than 44 weeks is not compatible with life due to degeneration of the placenta.

Lmao. So many inconsistencies in d story,,,. With my knowledge of Medicine she couldn't av been pregnant for more dan 42weeks. It's a miracle though dt she got pregnant with a massive fibroid. D pregnancy must av Co existed with uterine fibroid. D hospital matron 's report got me cracking so is the womb & uterus different? ' a large sac filled with pus was seen in the womb but to find d uterus where d baby was hiding was difficult?' N it is sound she used to hear not fetal heart rate. This couple ought to do Thanksgiving for safe delivery,,,,. #myopinion.
