Omugwu: After Childbirth Who Should Visit Mother Or Mother-In-Law?

Omugwu: Who Should Visit Mother Or MIL?


Let mew first explain to you what Omugwu is an age old tradition in Nigeria where after a women delivers her baby, her mother or mother-in-law comes and takes care of her and the newborn until she is completely healed.

My Labor Story: Second Time Around

  • The midwives were supportive, calm and coordinated

My 18 month old toddler was in bed with hubby and I and I didn't want to take the chance of waking him up because once he's up, it's a struggle to get him back to sleep.

So when the first contraction came, it was unexpected, sharp and woke me right up.

Why Is It Always The Women To Put Other Women Down?

Women, Why Can't We All Just Get Along?



Hello

How are you doing today? How's your Saturday going? Mine went just fine. Had a late sleep in and hubby made sure my 1 year old didn't disturb me. He was so kind to come take Derek as soon as he heard his cries, fed him breakfast and proceeded to entertain him till i woke up.

Hi Mummies and Daddies and Good readers,

How are we all today? It's Wednesday and it's mid week, what have we achieved since Monday? If you like me, at the start of the week, got an offer letter to study a MA Education at the University of South wales in collaboration with UNICAF then yay! But If you are still expecting good news and haven't yet received it, don't worry, the week is still young and what God has ordained for you is coming your way.

Abuja's National Children Park And Zoo Is Not What It Used To Be

National Children Park And Zoo, Asokoro Abuja
On Saturday, the hubby, Baby D and I went to Abuja's National Children Park And Zoo and let me tell you it isn't what it was. The first time i visited the park, which was back in 2013, there were more animals to see. They used to have giraffes, porcupines, some eagles i believe.
