Story told by Marina Todorova from Silistra
I married on November 13th, 1971. Days, months, and years passed by but we still couldn’t have a child. In one February day of 1974, I heard from friends of mine that they went to visit Baba Vanga and after they followed her recipe, my girlfriend got pregnant and gave birth to a boy. This is when I decided to meet with Baba Vanga at the first possible date. I submitted my documents to the local police station, and on March 4th, 1974 I headed to Petrich. It was a cold winter with a lot of snow, but nothing could stop my enthusiasm to meet with the prophetess. I travelled alone as my husband couldn’t get a day off at work. This was even better, as I wanted to hear her advices alone, so I can have some time to think about what she said.
I stayed at Belasitza hotel, and decided to stay there until Baba Vanga accepts me. This was the closest hotel to her house, and most of her visitors were staying here. I booked myself in the extra list.
On the next day, early in the morning me and some other women that had similar to mine problems headed to Baba Vanga’s house. I was anticipating our meeting with such an excitement. Around 8 am she showed up – dressed in clothes typical for this southern region of Bulgaria. Her hair was tucked in hair net and her head was uplifted. Once I saw her, my whole body felt a strong sense of trust – as if something told me to be calm, as she will show me way how to have child.
So every morning we were coming here and were waiting to be called. Baba Vanga was first accepting those people that have booked well in advance. Then if she wasn’t very tired, she accepted people from the extra list where was I.
On March 16th, I came to her house again. It was a sunny day, and I was feeling very calm. I slept very well at night, so I was full with positive energy. Baba Vanga announced this day that she will accept few people from the extra list. She mentioned my name as well. When I entered the hallway of her house, I heard her conversation with the visitor: – Take your father home with you, don’t leave him at the hospital and don’t let them make a surgery on him. Let him pass away among the people he loved the most.
After those sad words, I started to hesitate whether I should proceed meeting with her. The man that was before me walked out, and I entered.
Baba Vanga was sitting on a wooden bench, and beside her she had an aluminum basin where she disposed of the sugar given from visitors. Her voice startled me: – Come in – she said loudly.
I entered feeling a little scared, and gave her the sugar that was wrapped in a napkin. She unwrapped the sugar cubes, touched them for few seconds, and threw them away in the basin.
– You are coming from a distant city. You went to visit a doctor in another big city near yours and they have given you a correct diagnoses – undeveloped uterus. You don’t worry, you will have a child. Once you go back home, go and visit one of the sanatoriums in Pomorie. Follow all procedures that the doctors prescribe you. Then go to Sofia and visit Tina Kirkova hospital.
I was listening very carefully, so I don’t miss anything that Baba Vanga said. In this moment I saw her hands started to caress an imaginary little baby in her lap. She was whispering: – Come here, come here sweetheart…I see your baby”. I heard her saying that three times.
I didn’t ask her to tell me anything else. That’s all I needed to hear. I walked out of her house with a big smile and fulfilled with happiness.
When I came back to Silistra, I told my husband for my meeting with Baba Vanga. Then I went to Pomorie and did all procedures at the sanatorium there. The next step was Tina Kirkova hospital in Sofia, where I was directed to Doctor Tokin. She suggested that I should go back to Silistra to make a colorful scan, and after my period to go back to him.
This was unnecessary – I was now pregnant!
Our happiness was hard to describe…but the misfortune came quite early – I gave birth to a dead child. In the beginning I was very desperate, but then I gained strength to not give up because of this fatal ending of my first pregnancy. I was 26 at the time, so this was putting an extra pressure on my shoulders.
Few months later I went to Velingrad – a place that offers a great variety of pools with mineral water. I often recalled Baba Vanga’s words that one day I will have a child. On May 30th, 1976 I gave birth to a healthy baby boy – Peter. On July 3rd, 1979 I gave birth to my second child – Dimitar.
I am a very happy mother. Baba Vanga is greatly loved and respected in my family! For me she is more than a Saint!
