Nominated Senator Isaac Mwaura and his wife Mukami welcomed 3 premature babies last year but unfortunately 2 passed on.
They were left with their son who recently celebrated his 1 year birthday. In a new post shared on her Facebook page, Ms Mukami talked about a few of the issues she faced after losing her babies. She wrote saying;
In the last one year, I have learnt so much that we don’t usually prepare for especially when it comes to marriage. Life has its ups and downs which we can never fully anticipate or even prepare for so this is not about being prepared for every single situation that can occur in life. But….am thinking there are conversations that need to be had About things that are happening every day. So disclaimer…. I am not a marriage expert, I am just learning but I feel some things need to be said out loud.
The death of her babies hits her marriage
In the video she went on to narrate how the death of her babies were now affecting her marriage. This is after she took all the pain in and did not know how to handle such a situation.
Just like any parent, Mukami was never prepared to handle the loss of her babies but she managed to pull through.
Some of the things I never prepared for was the death of a child. We do a lot from baby showers to shopping but no one prepares for the death of a child. So when this happens it brings a very big strain on the marriage. Some marriages break because if you lose a child, you have to deal with emotion differently.
But together with her husband things worked out just fine and they are now raising their son peacefully.
