Controversial Nigerian writer and former presidential adviser, Reno Omokri, advises women not to flaunt their pregnancy and baby bumps on social media.
Reno shared his opinion in one of his Instagram posts that pregnancies should be kept discreet until they had been safely delivered. According to him, people did not need to know that a woman was pregnant, and not having baby showers would not kill them.
He further explained to ladies who like to parade their baby bumps on social media that not doing it would deprive them of nothing. He went as far as telling them to learn from their babies who were silent for nine months and only cried after their births.
Reno said that flaunting baby bumps attracts negative human spirits because not everyone has thoughts of peace towards the parents.
In addition, he said that they should announce births and not pregnancies. He wrote:
“People do not need to know you are pregnant. Not having a baby shower won’t kill you. Not parading your baby bump on social media deprived you of nothing. Learn from your baby. It is silent for 9 months and only cries when it is born! When you flaunt baby bumps, you attract Negative Human Spirits. Thoughts affect reality. Even God operates through the thought realm. ‘I know the thoughts I have towards you, thoughts of good, not evil’-Jeremiah 29:11. Not everyone has ‘thoughts of peace’ towards you. Protect yourself. Announce your births, not your pregnancies!”.
