Madam Ama Baah, a mother, also could not hide her joy for delivering her baby on the special day and expressed gratitude to God for the safe delivery.
She said, “We are yet to decide on the name to give our baby boy, but it will certainly be a nice name that will glorify God. ”
Madam Charity Owusu, another mother, who delivered a baby girl, could not conceal her happiness as she held the baby close to her chest and prayed for her.
