Kenyan singer and entrepreneur Esther Akoth, popularly known as Akothee, has emotionally remembered the unborn child she miscarried last year.
In an Instagram video, the 43-year-old musician, who is currently in Europe, shared a video of herself holding a baby and trying to calm them down. She said that the little child reminded her of the unborn baby that she and her husband, Denis “Omosh” Schweizer, were expecting in July this year.
“This one has reminded me and just reminded my hubby our baby would have been 1 month one week today, July. 22nd was our D day,” she wrote.
Akothee, who is a mother of five, said that she was still grieving the loss of her unborn child. However, she said that she was grateful for the opportunity to hold a baby again.
“I’m still healing but I’m grateful for this moment,” she said. “Congratulations to all mummies.”
Akothee’s video has been met with an outpouring of support from her fans. Many people have commented on the video, expressing their sympathy for Akothee’s loss and their admiration for her strength.
Miscarriage is a common experience, but it can be very difficult to cope with. Akothee’s openness about her experience is a reminder that it is okay to grieve and that there is no shame in seeking support.
If you have experienced a miscarriage, there are resources available to help you cope. You can talk to a therapist, join a support group, or read books and articles about miscarriage. There is no right or wrong way to grieve, so take the time you need to heal.
