Corazon Kwamboka and Frankie Just Gymit welcomed Corazon’s first and Frankie’s 3rd born in August.
From the pictures on social media, one would think that Corazon was having an easy time parenting but she was struggling to stay afloat as she would have depressive episodes. She pushed her man away and would even drive alone at night
“I had my baby in August, no one tells you how hard it’s going to be, it was the best moment in my life but it was also the toughest moments for me. I found myself crying for no reason, banging doors, and throwing myself on the floor, every small thing would trigger me to go nuts, like if the food did not have enough salt. I had such a hard time, 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,” she confessed.
She admitted that she was ashamed to admit that she 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. 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.”
Judging from the comments, Corazon is not alone in her post-partum distress as many women are struggling too.

marvelhazzline1: Hugs girl I am a victim of ppd, having a new born, spending sleepless nights, waking up early to prepare breakfast doing house chores all by myself, spending the whole day all alone, it’s you, your baby, house chores, and fatigue, it was the hardest moment ever in my life but I conquered, I never gave up I kept pushing, 13 months old and we are ok.
Citambo: Hii Corazon…I love you alot….anyways am a single mother of two getting no help at all….am trying to make it all by myself…..as much as am trying to make my girls happy it’s difficult also on my part but I have to be strong for them
awino_bree: I won’t lie sometimes I just get frustrated and agitated when the baby cries n cries after trying all forms of soothing and nothing seems to work..also my baby had very bad colic so it was really tough..still adjusting but being a first-time parent ain’t easy at all..you also panic at any moment and of course paranoid automatically
frazerkaf: I got a 3 yr old and 15 months old boys am still in my zombie world..the tantrums, toy fights, attention cries woiy I don’t know when I will wake up from this baby world..🤦♀haki..am always tired even with the help a nanny..but I always console myself it is just for a while..they will grow and become independent..so hold on mum..we are together in this..it will pass
sau_kibuule: My 3rd baby was through an emergency CS. The epidural was done badly so after the baby was born I was leaking spinal fluid and had severe spinal headaches. Then I developed pneumonia and had to be readmitted when the baby was only a week old. Worst week of my life. I couldn’t breastfeed and she had to go home with my mum in law. It was tough but we made it. Praying for you. It shall be well ❤️
