Adesua Etomi Recounts Childbirth Ordeal
Adesua Etomi has opened up on the issues she faced during her childbirth as she celebrates her son’s first birthday.
In a video shared on Instagram, the Nollywood actress and mom of one revealed that she had nearly died after suffering a postpartum hemorrhage.
Captioning the video, which includes clips of her pregnancy test, telling her friends she was pregnant and holding her baby, Adesua thanked God for saving her life.
She wrote, “A year ago, God gave me the best gift ever. He placed the most precious jewel in my care. A year ago, God saved my life after suffering a postpartum haemorrhage, and I’m still here only because he had his way.”

Recounting her life post-childbirth, she continued, “It’s been a year filled with lots of love, joy, peace and laughter. Hazaiah, the one who yahweh sees. My joyful baby, my funny baby, my pacesetter. After Jesus, You are the light of our lives.”
“I am so grateful to God for you. Nations will rise and call you blessed. Nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your rising. You will forever be the Head and not the tail.”
“The Lord shields you, announces you, defends you and favours you. Anyone who blesses you is blessed. Anyone who curses you is cursed. I declare that you are a city set upon a hill, your glory will never be hidden.”
“You are salt of the earth, you will never lose your flavour. You will always be a source of joy in Jesus’ name. Amen. I love you more than I can possibly put into words.”
“My Sunshine. My baby. My darling. Happy birthday, Zaza. You mean the world to us.”
Also posting the same video to his Instagram, her husband Banky W wrote, “I already knew I was the luckiest, most blessed man alive when God gave me Susu… then He gave us Zaiah. My goodness. This amazing young man is everything we prayed for and so much more. My heart is overwhelmed every single day with love, joy, and gratitude.”
“Happy first birthday to Hazaiah Olusegun’ Champ’ Wellington. Our perfect gift from God. As your name is, so shall your years be. Jehovah will always watch over you, and always give you the victory.”
“You will be more knowledgeable than your teachers and more accomplished than your peers. You will achieve more than both of your parents combined, and fulfill your destiny in Jesus’ name. We separate you as a vessel for the Almighty; you will never lack any good thing.”
“We receive the grace, wisdom and resources to bring you up in the way of the Lord. We will live to see your children, and you will live to see your children’s children, in Jesus’ name. We will love you for eternity.”
Adesua and Banky W tied the North on November 19, 2017.
In February 2021, the couple announced the birth of their first child in a post to Instagram.
Later in April, in a testimony at The Waterbrook church, the couple revealed that they had lost their twins to miscarriage and talked about adoption/surrogacy after the incident.
