SAVED BY THE KNIFE – He left me to go pray at a crusade

“A baby born to the world is not defined by how he/she gets here. God’s gift and plans for each child doesn’t change by how they were born. They remain so, waiting to be discovered.” ~ Phebe (Reju) Olaniran

23 years ago on the 16th April 1995, I lost a precious baby girl because a certain doctor had been careless with her delivery. Instead of taking me in for a CS, he had gone off to pray at a crusade so another doctor, a cousin to my hubby who had been informed by my mother-in-law rushed in to operate on me (in this other doctor’s theatre). It was too late. I had been left for too long.

A year later, I had my son. Because I’d had a previous CS only the year before, my new doctor was unwilling to take chances the previous doctor had taken, so we decided it’d be an elective one. I was petrified, I thought in my head that I was determining the day of my son’s birth and that was God’s job not mine. God spoke to my heart “do you want to see this baby or not Kemisola? I am the one who works wonders through the doctors, I created their hands to work through mine the Master Crafter, so be still and know that I am God”. That WAS IT! He was aware, He knew my frame and my frame of mind and He loved me enough to choose my son’s way of delivery. Ireoluwa was born! A beautiful and healthy baby.

Three and a half years later, my second son Anuoluwa came via CS. He weighed a wonderful 4.8kg at birth! Tell me how easy it would’ve been to push out a big baby like that eh?

Let us thank God for His creative ways he has put in us, in our doctors. I have known women lose their lives because either they or partners will not sign to have a CS done and for what?

I’ve had to shorten my story but I leave you with 2 scriptures I held on to dearest sisters…

Psalm 9:10 “Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you”.

2 Corinthians 1:9 “We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us, for he can even raise the dead”.

I have 2 beautiful young men today because I allowed God to take over. Remain strong. He wants the best for you and your baby
