“If not for me insisting that she had to breathe, she didn’t wanna leave the house. Lakini Leting ni nani… I have been taking her out of the house by force,” he wrote.

Being the loving husband that he is, Leting organised lunch dates and his wife to gigs and concerts, even as he reminded her of the incredible feat of bringing a new life into the world.

Over time, Nyce learned to embrace her birth scars with pride, recognizing the significance of her journey and her resilience.

“She has recovered. Her scars have healed. She is glowing, and all these things make me so proud,” Leting said.

Leting’s message extended beyond their personal experience to offer appreciation and support to all individuals who have undergone life-altering processes, such as childbirth or other significant life changes.

“This is an appreciation post to everyone who has ever given birth or undergone any process that has had long and significant implications for their lives. I want y’all to know how much I appreciate you. Mothers, y’all are special. Y’all are pieces of roses without which this earth would stink pungent and would be ugly,” Leting said.
