Politician Isaac Mwaura's wife, Nellius Mukami Mwaura has had quite a rough journey especially after losing two of her three kids.
Mukami and Mwaura welcomed triplets back in 2017 and sadly lost two-thirds of them months later after being admitted to the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Speaking to Spice FM's Barbara M'mbaka, Mukami shared her painful experience from the moment her triplets were born to the suffering she had to endure thereafter.
“In 2017 I delivered triplets but I lost two of the babies. I am left with a boy who is currently 5 years old. One of the kids passed after two days the other after three months,” shared Mukami walking Barbara through the unpleasant hospital stay where she watched doctors trying to unsuccessfully revive her new born baby.
Mukami went through a horrifying period where she had to watch her other child fighting for her life before he passed on. That left her battling both postpartum and trauma depression.
"At some point, I had to be admitted to the hospital for depression, I was dealing with postpartum depression and trauma depression. I felt alone because I did not know anyone, and my husband and family did not know how to help me. I was a new mum, I was also grieving.
Mukami says what gave her a bit of strength was the moment she interacted with other women who had lost their kids, and that is when she realized she was not alone.
Mukami revealed that she lost her job when she was 6 months pregnant.
It is through her painful journey of loss and grief that her noble Kena organization was birthed.
What does the organization do?
“We support families with premature babies. Kena is also a place to seek information to help mothers with premature babies on how to help them live and thrive. We also offer mental support, and provide mental awareness.”
In a previous interview, Mukami said she is grateful for every day that she lives.
"I know deep down that I am not broken and I am worthy. I know there is still so much for me to conquer. I have spent so much time grieving the person I was and forgotten to be grateful for the woman I am becoming. I am a work in progress."
