OAP Tolupe ‘Toolz’ Oniru-Demuren has opened and is sharing details of the loss of her baby in 2017.
Recall that in that year, she and her husband Tunde Demuren announced they were pregnant and showed off her cute baby bump at Adesua Etomi and Bank W’s wedding. However, a few months down the line, her bump seemed to disappear.
The mom of one recently opened up on Betty Irabor’s show “Life Lessons with Betty Irabor”. In this new interview, she talks about the harrowing experience of losing a baby; the disbelief, the pain, and her journey to healing.
Here’s a summary of the interview
Toolz took in a few months after her wedding. When the pregnancy progressed to 6 months, she stopped feeling any fetal movement.
Several trips to Nigerian hospitals proved fruitless as they could not ascertain what was wrong.
She eventually had to leave for the UK where a scan showed the baby was too small and may not make it.
“I never once thought that the health of my child would be an issue,” she said.

The doctors repeated several tests and scans. They did their best but when a final scan showed the baby was no longer moving, she was told labor would have be induced.
Medications to kickstart labor were administered. This was done on a Thursday and she was told return on Saturday.
However, labor cramps started on Saturday. She said she was having an almost normal Saturday of preparing breakfast when the pains began: “From there, the pain went from two to ten. And I remember screaming… I was in so much pain and that’s when I realized that gosh, I’m in labor. “I was in labor for about 6 or 7 hours”.
On losing the child, Toolz said, “I think one of the worst moments after that… of course, this was in the UK, they had to do like an autopsy, I had to arrange a funeral. It was horrible… That whole time, I was just like, ‘Yeah, God, I’m done’. I’m like ‘come and take me, I’m gone’.”
