Threatening to expose one of the hospitals, the doctor wrote: “One day we will talk about how some hospitals deceive & lie to women that they are pregnant and say CRYPTIC PREGNACY
“And later keep injecting the women with hormones so they feel they are pregnant and on the D day give the woman arranged baby. I’d expose a hospital. stay tuned.
“The woman will do scan even after first trimester, there won’t be baby in her womb & they will keep telling her she is pregnant and the woman will keep believing because she has pregnancy symptoms, not knowing she is being pumped with pregnancy hormone injections. Dropping soon
“And they collect a lot of money from these women, they pay heavily for these so called Cryptic pregnancies. They even give drugs for the woman to vomit so she feels yes she is pregnant.
“Word has it that some of them even work hand in hand in with baby factories and stolen babies.”

@tellmarh: “I know two women that got their babies through this way shaa. From day one I knew it was a scam but I doubt if they new. One was given twins and these twins didn’t even resemble any of the couple.”
