About one month ago, renowned socialite Corazon Kwamboka became a mother for the very first time.Together with her spouse, popular gym trainer Frankie Justgymit, they were blessed with a bouncing baby boy who they named Taiyari, meaning our love in Spanish.
However, Corazon was not at all prepared for the challenges accompanied with raising a newborn child for the first time. Speaking on her Instagram, Corazon opened up about how postpartum depression affected her life and to an extent, her relationship with the father of her child.
“I found myself crying for no reason, banging doors, and throwing myself on the floor. Every little thing would trigger me to go nuts, like the food did not have enough salt.”
Corazon added that she has the support of Frankie otherwise, things would have been worse;
"Frankie tried, I mean he really tried to make it easier but I was just pushing him away. One day I started driving in the middle of the night with my baby strapped on his seat. That’s when I realized I was endangering myself and my baby and I needed help. I had been embarrassed to ask for help, embarrassed to admit that I was having a hard time, it took a huge toll on me trying to deal with it alone."
Corazon advised women going through post-partum depression to always surround themselves with people who love them and to seek help when things get too tough.
“I guess what I’m trying to say is it’s okay to be stressed or to have blues. Surround yourself with people who love and support you and don’t push them away, and when you feel you can’t take it anymore, it’s okay to seek help. We are just humans too. Share with me your hardest moments adjusting as moms. Let’s give one another some kind and encouraging words. Love and light to all moms"
