Laurie Idahosa Testimony
Laurie and her husband, Bishop Feb Idahosa have had four children – Benson (2007, late), Feb Junior (2008), Nathaniel (2011) and Judah (2013).
As she revealed in an interview, the journey to conceiving these children (all boys) was not pleasant.
Laurie got married to Bishop Feb at the age of 28, she couldn’t wait to have a baby. She wanted so badly to carry his child.
After the first year of her marriage and there was no pregnancy, she urged her husband that they should go for a fertility test. He thought it was absurd but to pacify her, they went together all the same.
After all the tests, the result was devastating of sort as the doctor blunlly told Laurie and her husband that they were both 99.9% infertile and could never have children without In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
The couple undertook the IVF journey gathering the financial resources from the investments they made before marriage and began the treatment.
After forfeiting $25,000, injections, surgery and many other gory tales that ought no to be written, the embryo transfer was made. A fortnight later, they went back to check if she was pregnant but she wasn’t .
They repeated this process many times without any success. In fact the more treatment she did, the more puffier her stomach became.
Laurie and her husband decided to find another hospital after four failed IVF attempts. They opted for New York Presbyterian Hospital located at Cornell University because of the hospital’s statistical track record of better outcomes. This time, they succeeded.
Finally she was pregnant and she treated the pregnancy with delicacy and even refused to travel back to Nigeria even though they were based in Nigeria.
She followed every instruction religiously and attended every doctor visit. She eventually delivered a handsome baby boy after a long labour and going through caesarian section.
Early the next morning a nurse in the hospital told them to come and see the baby who was having difficulty breathing and maintaining a blood pressure. Unfortunately, the baby christened Benson Idahosa III died after living for only 12 hours. The baby was eventually buried in July 9th 2007.
In the burial service, Bishop David Huskins prophesied over couple saying “a year from that day God is going to give the family a reason to rejoice”. Laurie and her husband returned to Nigeria with empty arms full of prophetic promises and hope.
Since they could not attempt IVF for another according to the doctor’s advise, The couple returned to their normal life and embarked on a project that had been bithed in their spirit by God in the cause of their travail; to establish a hospital for women and children in Nigeria named Big Ben Children’s Hospital.
Exactly a year after the demise of her first son and Bishop Huskens prophecy, Laurie gave birth to Feb Jr on the 9th of July 2008. Laurie eventually went on to give birth to two children naturally.
Prior to her second child’s conception and birth, some doctors had, while acknowledging Feb Jr’s miraculous birth told his parents that “nobody wins a lottery twice” with them stating categorically that Laurie could not conceive agin. Nathan Benson Idahosa was born on the 14th of November 2011.
Man proposes but God disposes. God kept his promises and answered the couple’s prayer. Their third child and son, Judah Benson Idahosa was born on the 2nd of January 2013.
