Weeks after celebrating the first birthday of her son, Mukami Mwaura (Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura’s wife) is still a woman in pain as she talks about losing her two babies.
Mukami had delivered triplets namely – Njiru Maigua Mwaura, Mwaura Maigua and Njeri Maigua – who were all born at 28 weeks, sadly Njeri and Mwaura passed on after 3 months at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
She is married to Isaac Mwaura and the couple recently celebrated their third wedding anniversary with an escape vacation to Dubai.
In a recent post, Mukami had addressed people who were constantly questioning the slow growth of her son despite the fact that he was born premature.
“Every child is different. I know my child is doing great considering his birth weight and his history … so I don’t need you to highlight it after seeing him for one hour. People really don’t understand how some questions and comments hurt… We should endeavour to understand and appreciate that every child is different. Halafu be sensitive … empathize before you ask some hurtful questions.”
Like all mothers who have lost their children, Mukami agrees that it is never easy to lose a child because despite the fact that one can get other kids, the gap can never really be filled.

“The emptiness you are left with after you lose a child … “We may look as if we carry on with our lives as before. We may even have times of joy and happiness. Everything may seem normal. But this, EMPTINESS is how we all feel, all the time” ~ John Maddox, for Bereaved Parents Month “
A wise man once said
“The death of a child is like losing your breath and never catching it again.It is a forever panic attack feeling your heart dying as your soul is screaming for them .No matter what you try to do you keep loosing your mind.”
Society does not help when giving moral support to a grieving mother,as most make the mother end up feeling more miserable over constant pressure on the mother to move on.
