DJ Pierra Makena narrates pregnancy journey
I always imagined giving birth and having the father of my unborn child holding my hand
The former Tahidi High actress, who also doubles up as a TV host divulged that she had no idea of where to start, where she would take her unborn child or what her child would eat since she did not have enough resources and did not have a job at that moment.
In a long post on her social media page, the talented DJ who was blessed with a bouncing baby girl in 2016, narrated how her family, and close friends came to her rescue.
She went on to reveal how she always imagined giving birth and having the father of her unborn child holding her hand and helping even if it was with a diaper but she ended up being alone.
"On this date 2016..... a day before i gave birth to my little princess...I was going through the hardest time of my life. Yet I went through it with a smile. I did not know where to start..what my child will eat..where I will take her..i did not have enough resources..i did not have a job and my savings had run out... my family and very close friends were great support otherwise I would have died of depression. I always imagined giving birth and having the father of my unborn child holding my hand and helping even if it is with a diaper...but I was alone...with many questions and fear..."
Makena went onto recall how she cried so many times while playing Mercy Masika's hit song Mwema before adding that she never wants to be in that kind of a situation again.
"I honestly was a little below rock bottom.. I remember I sat in my car and I played and replayed MWEMA by @mercymasikamuguro i cried so many times to God and prayed so many different prayers coz i didn't know what would be good for me anymore... I remember looking up and telling God please..please Be the father to my unborn child....... I don't ever want to be like this again.... and in my car in the house I just replayed the song like 100 times..."
"The following day I went to the hub.... just to walk around and yes all the time either my sister my mom my bros or my friend would be around coz they knew I needed the support though I didn’t ask....I walked so much....and guess what!!!! My water broke. #ownmystory #BEYOU #thediaryofamomDj #imhuman #thanks to anyone who stood up for me and shared my tears. Let’s enjoy the smiles...." she posted.
