Betty Irabor, publisher and founder of Genevieve magazine, has taken to social media to recount how she battled trauma after having a miscarriage.
In a post on her Twitter page on Thursday, Irabor described the experience as “bloody”, explaining how it left her unsettled with several thoughts running through her mind.
“I have had a miscarriage and a near miscarriage and the experience is bloody nasty. You blame yourself for what you could or should have done differently. The guilt consumes you,” she wrote on Twitter.
I have had a miscarriage & a near miscarriage & the experience is bloody nasty. U blame ursef 4 what u cld or shld have done differently. D guilt consumes u.
Truth is, It's not ur fault. U didn't bring it upon urself. Try & set urself free from d guilt so u can begin to heal❤Advertisement

Using herself as a reference, she, however, enjoined others who have had similar experience to put the attendant guilt and sad memories behind them since it wasn’t their own doing.
“Truth is, It’s not your fault. You didn’t bring it upon urself. Try and set yourself free from the guilt so you can begin to heal,” she added.
The development comes about two months after the 63-year-old author had revealed that she fought depression for eights years which resulted in loss of weight at the time.
“When I was battling depression and lost weight, many thought I was on a death diet & hounded me till I was ashamed to go out. A News Daily called me Anorexic,” she had said.
“I got labelled “Snobbish” cos I lost every ability to socialize….Hmm Things are never what they seem. Let’s be guided.”
In 2019, Irabor had also revealed that she once attempted suicide when she was ‘sick and in pain’.
