Nana Yaa Brefo, a Ghanaian journalist, has revealed that she has put a stop to her attempts to become pregnant and give birth again.

This, she claims, is the result of six failed In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) procedures that she thought would provide her with some relief.

Nana Yaa revealed in a 2020 interview that she lost her womb at Ridge Hospital during a major surgery while pregnant with her second child, a situation that was difficult for her to accept.

Speaking about the future, the journalist on Adom TV’s M’ashyase3 said she was still hopeful she could have a baby because of the various options available.

Despite her determination, Nana Yaa revealed that she was unsuccessful.

“I tried other means to get pregnant and I have tried IVF about six times. Four was successful but the pregnancy was aborted at a point so I am on break now. Aside from the cost, the health complication is a lot so I have relaxed now. It is the person involved or the eggs you use,” she opened up to Afia Amankwa Tamakloe.


The tough-spoken journalist indicated she has for some time now also considered adoption but has not had the courage to go execute it.

“I have spoken to the head of social welfare about three times but I haven’t had the courage to proceed. I went to an orphanage for a donation and have even met two girls but I’m working on something currently and that will determine the next step,” she said.
