‘I battled postpartum depression’ – BBNaija’s Bambam

Former Big Brother Naija contestant, Bamike Adenibuyan popularly known as Bambam, has recounted her struggles with childbirth and postpartum depression.

In a recent interview with popular media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Bambam said she was diagnosed with preeclampsia during her first pregnancy.

The mother of two said pregnancy transformed her body.

While appreciating her husband, Teddy A
for being supportive during the transition phases of her pregnancy, Bambam said she ignored online trolls who mocked her for gaining weight because “they can’t understand”.

“I would never have imagined my body would get this thick but thank God for supportive husbands like mine. Imagine having a husband who was not open to the transition phases I went through with each pregnancy.

“My second pregnancy was even more merciful than the first. I went from Maroon to black, from size 8 to 14/16. I had skin tags and acne breakouts.

“I was in shock. I went through postpartum depression. I was a mess. I didn’t understand. I literally transformed.

“I had to ask the doctor, why is my baby so white looking?’ She had grey eyes and now they are brown. She looked so different. I had preeclampsia with her pregnancy, by the time I arrived at the hospital she had detached from my placenta.

“My pregnancy phase was a miracle. Postpartum depression was because I kept playing all the what if in my head.”
