“I have been looking for a child” 39 year old Pregnant ‘Mama Baha’ opens up about struggle with infertility

There is nothing more painful than a woman trying all means to get pregnant – but everytime her pregnancy results comes out negative. It’s heartbreaking and most of the time leaves the woman on her knees begging and praying if not on IVF treatment – just to get a child…. even if it means just one.

Actress Mama Baha aka Wanjiku Mburu

Well, this is something one Wanjiku Mburu knows very well. After years of acting with kids  and even playing the role of Mama Baha on Machachari – Ms Mburu often secretly wished that one day she would have children of her own to call her mama.

The actress revealed this during a candid interview with popular news outlet, where she opened up about her struggle with infertility and how she finally conceived after dedicating her life to prayers and fasting.

Walk of Faith

According to Wanjiku Mburu her life changed in 2018 after she took time to pray and fast – hoping God would finally let a seed grow in her womb.

Being a spiritual person – Wanjiku says God spoke back to her promising children and although the miracle happen there and then – she chose to wait by hanging on to her faith.

2 years later at the age of 38, a new heart started beating inside her – and this only meant there was life growing in her. Wanjiku says at first she couldn’t believe that finally a baby is growing inside her and was only convinced after the bump started growing. She said;

To tell you the truth, I was not convinced. It was a good surprise, I told God sorry for doubting. I have been looking and I love children, I was dealing with children all along but not my own. I started acting with my young Milly at the age of 6 months. I have also been brought up in a family set up and children is something I wanted to have, but I said, in case I don’t have, it is still okay.
