Isaac Mwaura’s wife pays tribute to two of her triplets who died with touching message
In a series of posts on her Instagram, Ms Mukami remembered her angels Baby Njeri and Baby Mwaura Jr who were born prematurely at 28 weeks and had to be admitted at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
“Remembering My beautiful Angels, Baby Njeri and Baby Mwaura Jr. Today we remember all babies born sleeping, Those we've carried but never met, Those we've held but couldn't take home,The ones that came home but did not stay.Make this your profile status if you or someone you know has suffered the loss of a baby. Break the silence. In memory of all angels too perfect for earth. angels ” wrote Ms Mukami.
In a sad lengthy post by Mr Mwaura back in August 2017, the legislator opened up on the death of their newborns.
“Mukami and I even lost two of our triplets (a boy and a girl) and we were left with only one son and a hospital bill of 11.2 million to clear not forgetting that we were in the middle of party primary campaigns. It was really tough but we kept the faith,” said Isaac Mwaura.
In September 2017, Ms Mukami, through her blog, gave a detailed account of how her triplets were delivered prematurely and stayed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for 11 weeks before two of them died.
“At 28 weeks pregnant the last thing I expected was to deliver my babies, so when I got strange cramp pains at around 9pm on Wednesday 18th January, labour was the last thing on my mind. I called my doctor who told me to head to the labour ward, this was not strange as I had been admitted to the labour ward several times before in the course of the pregnancy,” she wrote.
“So once we got to the labour ward they started giving me meds to hold or reverse the labour. By 3am that night I was in full blown labour, at around 7am the doctor checked in and said we would be going into the delivery room for an emergency CS
“For the longest time I have blocked the memories of this first night because it was horrible. Seeing your child/children for the first time should be a joyous occasion but for me it was one night that I hope to forget. Every time I look back at this night I feel so helpless and disappointed and I can’t help but break down in tears. I never want to go through this again.It was a feeling of shock, disbelief coupled by feelings of failure, failure as a mother. I had failed my children, my body had failed me, so many questions ran through my mind when I remember this night. We began with triplet number one (Mwaura Jr) who was at the furthest corner of the first” she wrote.
