Woman dies after giving birth at 55 just to please her husband

A 55-year-old woman recently died after having triplets just to please her husband who was threatening to marry another wife if she didn’t give him another son.

The story is a heartbreaking one. She didn’t have any business going for IVF at her age. But as a good Nigerian wife, she wanted to please her husband and stop him from marrying another woman.

Today, she’s no longer in this world and her husband will soon replace her. Her triplets are motherless because she wants to please a husband who has low sperm count.

Someone shared the story on Facebook.

“A few weeks ago, I wrote about my sister’s landlady who died three days after giving birth to triplets.

When I heard the story, that led to her getting pregnant in the first place, I was furious and asked why she should get pregnant after many yrs of giving birth to her son thinking she was in her 40s.

Apparently this woman gave birth to her son yrs ago and couldn’t conceive again since. As usual there has been many issues with the husband and the in laws over having other children.

In the end, the husband threatened to marry another wife if she did not give him another child preferably a boy.

This woman was a manager in one of the Fidelity bank branches in the city, she had her own money and had helped the husband in many ways financially, she was beautiful, educated and intelligent, she was 55..

She finally gave in to the pressure of getting pregnant via IVF at the age of “55”. At 55 my fellow woman allowed herself to go through fertility treatment and conceived, went through the ordeal of pregnancy at old age, and later gave birth to triplets, three days later she slumped and died while in the toilet.

At 55, this beautiful woman sacrificed her life to please a man who obviously has low sperm count hence he could not impregnate her naturally all these yrs.

Now, the triplets are alive, my fellow woman is gone, is the man going to waste time in marrying another wife now?

My sadness goes beyond the woman and her selfish husband but the foolish and wicked doctor who carried out the procedure.

IVF has an age limit, please look after your lives women. You need to be alive to be married and have children.

Why do we women hate ourselves so much that we subject our body to all sorts including our lives all to please men?

Now the rumours in the village and everywhere is “why did she get pregnant” no one is talking about the husband who led her to her untimely death.

I’m so heartbroken.

This is so sad.”
