About one month ago, renowned socialite Corazon Kwamboka became a mother for the very first time.
Together with her spouse, popular gym trainer Frankie Justgymit, they were blessed with a bouncing baby boy who they named Taiyari, meaning our love in Spanish.
However, Corazon was not at all prepared for the challenges accompanied with raising a newborn child for the first time.
Speaking on her Instagram, Corazon opened up about how post-partum depression affected her life and to an extent, her relationship with the father of her child.
Socialite Corazon Kwamboka disclosed that although getting a child was one of her best moments, she found herself extremely emotional to the point that she would get agitated by every little thing happening around her.
“I found myself crying for no reason, banging doors, and throwing myself on the floor. Every little thing would trigger me to go nuts, like the food did not have enough salt.”
She went on to add that her baby daddy Frankie was by her side, trying his best to make things easier for her, but she ended up pushing him away.
According to the socialite, she felt too ashamed to ask for help from anyone and ended up trying to deal with everything herself, which made things even worse.
“Frankie tried. I mean he really tried to make things easier, but I was just pushing him away.”
Corazon Kwamboka however revealed that she got her wake up call one day while she was driving in the night with her child.
She realised how much danger she was putting her child in and finally decided to ask for help.
Corazon advised women going through post-partum depression to always surround themselves with people who love them and to seek help when things get too tough.
“I had been embarrassed to ask for help and admit I was having a hard time. It took a huge toll on me to deal with it alone.”

World Mental Health Day. Before this day is over I would like to share a short story. 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. 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. Share with me your hardest moments adjusting as moms. Let’s give one another some kind and encouraging words. Love and light to all moms
