Ghanaian veteran actress Nana Ama McBrown has shared her stories of the traumatic experience she had to go through until she was blessed with a child.
Nana Ama Mcbrown in a recent interview with Stacey Amoateng in ‘Restoration’ details some experiences she went through due to her inability to bear a child after marriage.
“I heard a lot; I had dogs at the time, so anytime I go on set with the dog, I hear comments like she has sold her womb for fame. I heard them all but what could I have done about it? Because I am moving on and shining in the movie industry, they thought I have traded my womb for fame,” she recalled.
According to the actress, she was encouraged by her husband, Maxwell Mawu Mensah, during those trying times but his morale-boosting acts were not enough as she said she needed a child of her own.
The actress shared her ‘option B’ of going for adoption should all efforts to help her conceive her child became futile.
“I told myself that if I have not conceived by the age of 45, I will go for adoption. If I had gone through all the processes to help me give birth but still not successful, I planned to convince my husband to adopt a baby for me,” she said.
McBrown advised all women going through the challenges of having children of their own to not give up, and not forget the power of prayers and medical care.
The TV host, however, warned that women who yearn for the fruit of the womb should not make wrong decisions like going to strange places to solve their problem.
“I want to tell women who are having it difficult to bear children not to give up. God didn’t create anybody to be barren. Don’t be going to odd places for help if you’re looking for a child,” she concluded.
