Diana Marua and Bahati have been open about a lot of things in their life. One thing I hadn’t realised that they had kept close to the vest was the manner in which Diana had her children, that being either natural birth or C-section.
Diana who has been revealing a lot this past week decided to let her fans in on her both her pregnancies.
In a video she shared on Instagram, the mother responded to a question from a fan and said that she preferred giving birth the natural way, but unfortunately it hadn’t been possible for her.
The reason for her predicament was that she was suffering from Symphysis pubis, and her pelvic bones were too close to each other and it was painful. She added that at the time, even moving from her bed to the bathroom was with difficulty.
All these issues forced her doctor to advise her to get a C-section for both her kids.
I did not prefer to go for C-section. What happened with my firstborn baby Heaven, I got a complication where my pelvic bones zilikuwa zinashikana (they were too close together) and it got to a point where walking a small distance was very hard for me. I couldn’t even move from the bed to the bathroom. That condition is called Symphysis pubis. So with that, the doctor had to advise me not to go the natural way. Natural birth was not an option for me and on my second baby, the same happened and that’s why I opted for C-section.
What is Symphysis pubis dysfunction?
It is a group of symptoms that cause discomfort in the pelvic region. It usually occurs during pregnancy, when your pelvic joints become stiff or move unevenly. It can occur both at the front and back of your pelvis. SPD is also sometimes referred to as pelvic girdle pain.
