Size 8 has been in our thoughts and prayers for the past few weeks. The reason for that is the complications she experienced during her pregnancy. She even had to have an emergency CS, something the singer shockingly narrated to us.
‘My darkest moment I was unwell myself in the NICU unit at @rfh_healthcare my baby born earlier than expected weeks before the due date and so rushed into the machines!!!! A moment even darker when there was a slight emergency that my baby needed some oxygen intake urgently but through it all GOD DID IT!!!!!!! We are alive by His grace alone!!! A MIRACLE CHILD I NOW CARRY IN MY ARMS!!!!’
But after her struggles to give birth, many wondered when she would leave the hospital? That day was today with the musician and her husband leaving the hospital that was located in Ruai. She revealed this good news on her Instagram page to her enthusiastic fans and followers.
Her caption read,
‘Woi sijatoka hospitali mkono mtupu!!!!!! GLORY BE TO JEHOVAH!!!!!!!! The last part of the journey is the victorious exodus back to our home!!!! I thank God that I never left the hospital empty-handed am now at home enjoying motherhood now a mother of two because God is JEHOVAH LORD OF HOST!!! A special thanks to everyone who has been praying for us!!!!! To @lesusexecutive cars thank you for this gift you heard what my family had been thru And you offered a luxurious ride home for us God bless you.’
All I can say is that this is great news! While the maternal mortality rate in Kenya isn’t as high as it was before organised medicine, it is still quite high.
According to recent stats, the Kenyan Maternal mortality rate is 510 deaths/100,000 live births (2015 est.) … The MM Ratio includes deaths during pregnancy, childbirth, or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, for a specified year.
