“If you have this baby before you make it to the other hospital, this baby won’t make it.”
Those words are earth shattering to any parents-to-be. Yet, this nightmare became a reality for gospel singer Todd Dulaney and his then-pregnant fiancé, Kenyetta, as they were being transported to another hospital because theirs wasn’t equipped to handle her “bulging bag,” or amniotic sac.
Oh, and it didn’t help that Kenyetta was only 23 weeks pregnant. Her first-born would be a premie – if he survived the journey through the birth canal.
“[When] we got to the other hospital, they gave us all the bad news that you can think of,” says Kenyetta Dulaney while sitting next to her husband behind a piano in their suburban home.
“If you have the baby, he won’t walk. He’ll be retarded. All the bad stuff.”
Just before the April 15 release of his sophomore album, A Worshipper’s Heart, which topped the Billboard “Top Gospel Album” chart, Dulaney and his wife sat down with BlackDoctor.org to talk about overcoming the hardship of having two pre-term babies so early in their relationship.
Their first child, Todd Jr., is now a healthy 5-year-old boy. But he was born extremely premature, weighing 1.9 pounds at birth.
