She is therefore pleading for forgiveness from her family and the law enforcement agency amidst uncontrollable tears.

The sudden confession by the woman has purportedly put her husband, Michael Simons who has mounted a spirited defence for her since the issue broke out in a state of shock.

According to information gathered, the confession was after a second opinion sought by the police at the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital about laboratory tests and analyses were done so far suggest that she was neither pregnant nor given birth.

Besides medical tests conducted on Josephine to prove she was not pregnant, her actions and attitude including lack of bleeding after delivery also go a long way to suggest that she has not given birth.

However, medical officers at the Effia-Nkwanta hospital who provide medical assistance to the woman suspect she might be suffering from Pseudocyesis.

Pseudocyesis is defined by the DSM-5 as a false belief of being pregnant that is associated with objective signs and reported symptoms of pregnancy, which may include abdominal enlargement, reduced menstrual flow, amenorrhea, subjective sensation of fetal movement, nausea, breast engorgement and secretions, and labour.
