I was in labour for 24 Hours
As her daughter Ricca Pokot turns one today, Pierra has come out to share her painful labour story.
Pain that came in multi-folds once she had induced labour which is basically when a doctor uses a synthetic form of the hormone oxytocin to stimulate contractions. As you have probably heard induced labour is no walk in the park as the body does not receive the signal to release endorphins and so Pierra was in great pain.
But when she saw her baby girl after her back-breaking labour, the pain magically disappeared.
"24 hrs of labour. ..last year at this time in was going through sooooooo much pain wah!!!!! I got induced and the pain got worse. ....and Minutes later I pushed a bouncing baby girl. ..the pain was gone... God is great! !!!!! And now.......... a year later I can't express how happy and excited I am to celebrate her 1st birthday. .. just the other day uh?" She wrote. Before adding "1 year later and I have a beautiful healthy baby girl. ..... I wanna cry I wanna jump I wanna scream but most of all i wanna hold my baby and pray!"
