Earlier this month, Award-winning gospel singer-songwriter, Kambua Mathu opened up on her inspirational journey to the birth of her son, Nathaniel.
Having suffered from the constant trolling primarily focusing on the fact that she was still childless several years into her marriage with Jackson Mathu, Kambua revealed that she secluded herself from most of her friends, mostly because they all had babies, and consequently, all their topics revolved around their little bundles of joy – which was too much for her at the time.
She went on to explain that her inner circle played a critical role in helping her stay positive and maintain her sanity during a period where several trips to her doctors always yielded the same frustrating results, which was that nothing could be identified as the cause of their long wait.
“You realize as the years go by that you have less in common to talk about because their children become the focal point of conversation. It triggered and magnified my pain,” she confessed
The celebrated singer attributed the relieving birth of her son – whom she fondly refers to as “Toto”, to her husband’s unwavering support during her lowest moments.
The Kamba beauty has recently been back in the news after she publicly opened up on experiencing Postpartum Alopecia – temporary hair loss phase experienced by some women after childbirth.
The Rauka TV host took to Instagram where she shared details of her hair loss and revealed that she had to get her hair temporarily locked.
“And then my hair! A girl got her hair temporarily locked because let me tell you, postpartum alopecia is real and if @chimoga254 hadn’t convinced me to lock it, I was ready to get it cut,” read part of the post.

My eyes look some type of way because I haven't been feeling too great lately (migraines). But, I remain unmoved by the antics of the devil😪 . . . So let me tell you about my eyebrows that I got MICROBLADED 🤭. @microbladingkenya did such a fantastic job. The healing process takes ALOT of patience though. I looked a little crazy for a minute there, with scabbing brows👀. So this is how they now look. I can't wait for my touch up after this social distancing is over 😪. Thank you Christine! . . . And then my HAIR! A girl got her hair temporarily locked because let me tell you, Postpartum alopecia is REAL, and if @chimoga254 hadn't convinced me to lock it, I was ready to get it ✂️ I'll continue this conversation on another post. Thank you @locks_trend these are bomb 🔥. . . . #2020 #socialdistancing #isolation #corona #weareblessed #godiswithus #itwillpass #locs #microblading #iamkenyan🇰🇪
A while back, Kambua spoke of the struggles she has been experiencing as a first-time mother.
“Eyebags. Burp on nearly all my clothes. Soiled diapers. Still, I wouldn’t trade this new adventure for anything. Motherhood is H.A.R.D! But oh so rewarding. Who knew that something as natural as breastfeeding could be so daunting? Or that sometimes your little one will cry and you’ll end up in tears yourself?” she captioned an Instagram post.
In a sweet message to all first-time mothers, she assured them that they all have all it takes and urged them not to be afraid to ask for help.
