Speaking on the 'Restoration show, Nana Ama McBrown narrated that she went through so many social battles about her inability to bear a child after marriage, and it includes being accused of selling her womb for fame.
“I heard a lot; I had dogs at the time, so anytime I go on set with the dog, I hear comments like she has sold her womb for fame. I heard them all but what could I have done about it? Because I am moving on and shining in the movie industry, they thought I have traded my womb for fame,” she said.
McBrown added that at a point her expectations to have a baby started to shatter as age was catching up with her.
“It is a natural feeling with every woman, if you get to a certain age and you are not getting pregnant, you get to ask yourself so many questions,” she said.
She said she was encouraged by her husband, Maxwell Mawu Mensah, during those trying times but his morale-boosting acts were not enough as she said she needed a child of her own.
“My husband already has two children, and it becomes ‘obvious’ that I am the problem. Sometimes my husband is like ‘don’t worry, I love you’ but after all the cuddle you still feel like it is your problem,” she added.
She revealed her other option was to go for adoption should all efforts to help her conceive became futile.
McBrown advised all women going through the challenges of having children of their own to not give up, and not forget the power of prayers and medical care.

The TV host, however, warned that women who yearn for the fruit of the womb should not make wrong decisions like going to strange places to solve their problem.
“I want to tell women who are having it difficult to bear children not to give up. God didn’t create anybody to be barren. Don’t be going to odd places for help if you’re looking for a child,” she disclosed.
