Losing a child is painful. It’s an experience no mother wants to go through.
Nana Owiti, King Kaka’s wife, who suffered a miscarriage in 2014, took to social media to talk about the agony she suffered. One of her posts read:

Miscarriage can be such a devastating journey to walk through as a mother. There are many symptoms and causes of Miscarriage and infant loss which we shall discuss.. I will share mostly what I’ve been through or what I’ve seen first hand..Have I been through a Miscarriage?Oh yes! I have..Mnapenda story sana so here goes 😊 It’s Feb 2014. Beautiful morning. I take a test and oh! It’s positive. King said he wanted mtoi amuite ‘Daddy Gugugugu’ Now if you have been an ardent fan of King Kaka in his Rabbit days you will know that is an excerpt from his song-Twende. He meant every word. He wanted a baby-I grew into that idea. So yeah! We didn’t talk about baby names by the way. King has started calling me Mama Gweth long before we planned on having a baby. Said it’s a unisex name. I tell him no need of starting clinic mapema so we good.. First forward to the 1st of April 2014..I go the the washroom and get a blood stain. Kwani google ni ya kazi gani. Very fast I google and somewhere hapo napata ooh! Sijui implantation bleeding. Aaai! The math didn’t make up for implantation building but I choose to just hold onto the that as I freshen up and we head to the hosi. I tell the doc my LMP(Last Menstrual Period) and of course! The stain. He asks us to do a Scan.. the Sonographer calls another Sonographer and I hear. ‘Hakuna!’ Did I mention before that nimekunywishwa Maji mbaya sana coz the pregnancy is kidogo waezi Ona If the bladder is not full…Anyway I ask ‘Hakuna nini?’ the first Sonographer says ‘Hakuna heartbeat’… Yaani Hakuna siku ilifeel April fools Kama hii siku(notice the day) I gave King a quick glance and quickly gave those two Sonographer another one expecting a ‘We just fooled you!’ My God! There was no taking back their words. I died a little. King was confused and I some more. I walked out first and sat by the hallway of the hospital. Then King followed then we went back to the Sonographer and he asks..’Hakuna kitu mnaeza do yani?’ (Trust the Eastlando in this guy) Then he responds..’The best we can do is aoshwe as soon as possible..because by her LMP she should be 12weeks but by the foetal blah blah(those medical jargons)iko 7weeks meaning……. PART 1
The tear-jerking story of the mother of two left many sad. Women flooded the comments section to share their own horrifying stories on miscarriage, while others offered words of encouragement to her.
Below are the emotional stories from Kenyan mothers who’ve suffered miscariages.
shammysorganics @nanaowiti my love. Pole sana. Its encouraging somehow to know I’m not alone. Most women go through silent wars and battles amongst themselves trying to get over miscarriages. Pole for your loss. I’m grateful to God you healed and look at those little monkeys he blessed your lives with. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
tetemaiywa:@clariemeg omg I went through the same thing.I don’t know why we go thru such pain but looking up to God

And just the 9th,, just the 9th month she passed while she was still in my womb., I stayed for a whole week with a dead baby in my womb😢.
comical_ohanga A strong woman.Queen. 👑👑
lindakoske @kuinjubi I miss my baby boy 😢, my heart still aches three weeks later 😢😢. In God’s hands we leave it all.
shiromugure Went through the same ordeal in 2015 when we lost our little angel at just 8 weeks we were devastated I used to cry asking God what I had done wrong..But as the bible says his time is the best time we were blessed with a baby boy in 2016 and another one last year Jan and since he is still faithful a third one is due in September this year.To all the women out there going through the same time heals everything and our little angles are never forget. They remain our firstborns we never got a chance to meet.❤️❤️❤️
anita.ann Went through the same 😢but now I got the cutest son. God is always faithful.
braidmarydee I really needed this nana 😢😢😢 hoping for the best coz I’ve went thru the same twice and ma hopes are kinder dead.. Thanks
msndanu I love this. I have a friend who went through this a few weeks ago. It’s heart breaking. But, it’s not the end of the road… It’s just another story in your book. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
bakaribakari You have no idea how much hope this post has instilled in me. I feel like this was specifically for me to read. We lost our baby in November last year and I can assure you that was the most trying moment in our relationship. Me trying to be strong for her because I knew she needed that but deep down me, I was hurting. Asking God a million and one questions but all in all, He always has His reasons.. Anyway, bado najaribu kucheza kama Mimi and I hope very soon our prayers are going to be answered. Thank you Nana and may God bless you and your family.

imaingi it happened to me in 2017. I went for a scan and the doctor said “I think the baby died a long time ago, and was like what!!!!. I have a baby boy now he is 5 months now.
lil_kinoti It takes a strong lady to talk about the loss of a child and it takes allot of courage to come to terms with the situation am sorry it happened to you and although you will never forget I hope you moved on
