Mukami has opened up about losing her baby girl.
In her latest blog, she writes, “On 21st January was a Saturday the doctor came to inform me that triplet 2 (Njiru) and triplet 3 (Njeri) needed blood transfusion. This was a bit scary though he told me it usually happens for preemies. I went into the NICU to greet my babies and to give a blood sample for the cross matching. I was still in a lot of pain so I did not stay for long. I went into the breastfeeding room to try n express some milk for the babies. The room was full of ladies who were also going through the same; their children were in the NICU. It was encouraging to hear that their babies were improving. Later the breastfeeding room would become my safe haven .A room where we would find so much comfort, where we would cry together and laugh together. A room where I found friends who have become sisters to me.”
Everything was going on well till at around 5 pm when a nurse called on Mukami to accompany her to the NICU where her daughter was.

Mukami panic. She knew something was happening to her daughter Njeri.
“So the nurse helped me to the NICU where I found the neonatologist and a pediatrician attending to my baby. She was so tiny and the machines around her were too many. I can’t explain exactly what was going on but it was a horrific sight. The doctors were trying to stabilise her. At this point they explained that she had bled from the lungs, the doctor gave some other details but up to this day I do not remember what he said. All I know is at 6 pm her heart stopped beating. My baby girl had gotten her angel wings. I watched her inhale her last breathe. I never got the opportunity to hold her when she was alive…or to tell her, how much I loved her. I never got the opportunity to tell my baby girl that she was the most beautiful girl in the world. I never got to see my baby gal smile,” Mukami narrated.
