Nollywood actress, Uche Ogbodo clocks 43 years today, even as she recounted her near death experience while giving birth last year.
Ogbodo was born on May 17, 1979. She is an actress and film producer.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday to mark her birthday, Ogbodo said she never knew she would see 2022, but that “Mercy says NO each time the enemy rears up its ugly head.”
She wrote: “In the Theatre being delivered of my beautiful baby LUMINA ( Brighter Light ) I was So scared 😱! Something didn’t feel right, I continually felt something would go wrong!
“Maybe because I got so many death wishes from trolls online, my subconscious was already believing it might happen! 😩😩😩. But I pushed that fear to the back of my mind cos I wasn’t gonna leave my new baby with my young & scared & strong husband and go anywhere.
“God Bless him , he held my Hand all through the Surgery. Kept saying I can do it , I shall not die, what God cannot do does not exist!
“After birthing my baby, the doctors discovered complications, blood sacs in my stomach that’s one of the complications that might cos bleeding after birth.
“Thank God for my wonderful doctor FATIMALI, refused to stitch me back up! God used this wonderful Muslim doctor to save my Life. She discovered this problem and insisted it wasn’t normal, that my stomach wasn’t as it should be.
“If I had my baby elsewhere maybe they would have stitched me up and discharged me then I will go home and develop bigger complications and who knows 🤷🏽♀️, But Mercy said NO! My God was in the Theater that day! my God who watches over me, the Holy Spirit came through for Me. My God who is able to do all things for me exceedingly according to his Wishes and Glory to meet a perfect and expected end.”
