I was depressed, homesick –Georgina Onuoha



I was depressed, homesick –Georgina Onuoha

US-based Nigerian actress, Georgina Onuoha, has revealed that though she had a seamless childbirth, she went through postpartum depression and isolation after all.

The movie star made this known via her Instagram page while reminiscing on the time she gave birth to her daughter who is now 12 years old. According to her, at that time she had just moved to another country and was lonely with a partner who had a very demanding job.


“Memory lane. 12 years ago with Chigozie at arm and 7 months heavily pregnant with Chimezie. I was tired, homesick and depressed. Barely 8 months in a new country, no friends, no family, I was a loner with a partner who was always extremely busy with work as a medical doctor. Life was rough and of course, like most new moms I suffered postpartum depression and isolation. Thank God my mom had to leave everything to come to stay with me till my baby was born and she left two weeks after that.

“Having two infants at arms is not for the faint of heart. Baby blues was my partner and tears overwhelmed me daily.

About a year ago, Georgina Onuoha revealed how she went through some really hard times in the hands of her in-laws after her marriage to her ex-husband, Dr. C. Igwegbe, hit the rocks.

She alleged that she was constantly dragged to the police station by her in-laws.


She had revealed on her Instagram page on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, when she was celebrating the 11th birthday of her daughter:

“1 and 11.. how time flies…Lord, I am humbled. Thank you for your many blessings upon her life. Lord, you favoured me and blessed me with the most gracious daughter in the household of the Igwegbes. Despite the many battles from the enemies of Igwegbe’s household, you showed me mercy and gave me strength. I became a mom in the midst of a raging storm. I was threatened constantly that “you will never marry my brother, you will never be a mom, you will be barren, I will kill you, I will rather die than have you bear my brother’s kids or step your foot in my father’s house, you and your children will be bastards”. For no just cause. Simply because I was an actor…” she wrote.
