“It’s my fault,” laments a mother whose son passed away from a brain tumor.

Enitan Akande, a Nigerian mother, revealed that she neglected to take her pregnancy routine drugs, which resulted in her baby dying from a brain tumor.

She made this revelation on Monday, April 8, 2024, following Dr. Sina’s recommendation that all women who aspire to conceive in the future start taking folic acid supplements on a daily basis.

Enitan conveyed her sorrow and remorse, claiming that she holds herself responsible for her son’s passing as, had she taken her regular medications as directed, her son would not have grown a brain tumor.


Lost this my handsome son because I don’t like taking my routine drugs, I take it once in a while, just hate taking drugs. He had a brain tumor. Now I blame myself for it,” she wrote.


Dr. Aina claims that low-folic acid moms may give birth to children who have brain disorders, brain deformities, and spinal cord issues.

Every woman irrespective of her age who wants to get pregnant in the future should start taking Folic acid tablets every day. Folic acid is necessary for the development of the Brain & spinal cord of babies. Don’t wait till you get Pregnant. Start today,” he wrote.

“Tell a sis. A 3-month supply can cost around 500- 1000 naira. Fairly affordable. Babies born to mothers with low Folic acid can have brain problems, malformed brains, and spinal cord problems (see pic) even those born without a brain…(Neural tube defects)”
