Dr. Gbemisola spoke about how challenging it was for her to adjust to motherhood after the birth of her son came earlier than she expected. She explained that even as a medical doctor she was not really prepared.

She spoke about the misconception about motherhood, she said: “what you hear before you get married is not what is obtainable in reality; as a doctor, I realized there are some things you learn by experience not theoretically.”

She added: “The community makes us see motherhood as something that is innate and natural; that as a woman you are naturally a mother but it is not like that because there are a lot of things you have to learn so as to be able to cope.”

Doctor Gbemisola gave her advice to single ladies, she said: “I tell people (ladies) that are not married, learn as much as possible about every stage of marriage, pregnancy, delivery and after delivery.”
