Comedian Jacqueline Nyaminde popularly known as Wilbroda, has for the first time opened up on having a Miscarriage in 2013. The mother of one said she was excited to have gotten pregnant for the second time, and she hoped the baby was a girl and had even named her Atis.

Three months into her pregnancy journey, Wilbroda spotted, and the doctors confirmed her fears of a miscourage to be true. Wilbroda further added that her daughter would have been eight years old.

The comedian further stated that she went through depression without knowing. In a social media post on Mothers Day, Wilbroda wrote,

"On July 16, 2010, I became a mother to a beautiful baby boy. It was birth by C section, and my friends were there with me from the moment i got into theatre up until when the surgery was done. Thankyou @victorgatonye Thank you @king_lambourghini

4 days later, I was home, excited about this new chapter of my life."

"But then almost immediately, I started having feelings that I did not understand. I was extremely sad...There was this hollowness that would show up, especially in the evenings. I'd experience such anxiety and just start crying. I didn't understand it, I'd never heard of it. It just didn't feel right. I mean I was supposed to be happy. I had just been blessed with the most precious gift. I hated that feeling. I hated evenings. I told nobody about it. It just slowly slipped away...Only later did I get to know that what I went through was called Postpartum Depression."

"Then in 2013, I got pregnant again. Oh I was elated! I hoped and prayed that it was a girl. I was almost sure it was, so I named her Atis. But then at 3 months, I noticed abnormal spotting and my heart just sunk. The doctor confirmed it and I went in for an evacuation 2 days later. That was a sad period for me. Sometimes I sit and imagine she'd be 8 years now,"

"On this special Mother's Day, I dedicate my post to all you special women. Mothers who have been through one struggle or another. Mothers who don't understand it all. You'll get the hang of it. Hang in there. You are doing Great. You are Phenomenal. You are a Mother and God's No.1 helper."

Happy Mother's Day!
