Socialite Corazon Kwamboka has disclosed some of the insecurities she always faced before she got pregnant. According to the mother of one, she has always been insecure about acne, her thighs and teeth, but that is no longer the case.
“I was 2 months pregnant here, I have always been insecure about something. Today I would be insecure about my acne-scarred face, tomorrow about my thighs, next day about my teeth, it has always been something,” she wrote in part.
However, Kwamboka revealed that after getting pregnant, she fell in love with her body and as a result, her confidence levels were up in the sky.
“But strangely enough when I got pregnant, I wasn’t insecure even one day, I loved my body the most. I developed self-love and appreciation and whatever I did I was exuding confidence. PS; that went out the window once I had the baby,” she narrated.
Her revelation comes barely four months after she welcomed her first child, with fitness coach boyfriend Frank ‘Justgymit’ Kiarie. Talking about her childbirth experience, Kwamboka disclosed that she battled post-partum stress two months after welcoming her son. The trained lawyer revealed that after the birth of her baby she found herself extremely emotional and would get agitated by every little thing happening around her.
“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,” she said.
She disclosed that Frank tried to help her during that difficult phase but she pushed him away.
“I had such a hard time, Frankie tried, I mean he tried to make it easier, but I was just pushing him away,” she said.
She further revealed that she was too ashamed to ask for help from anyone and ended up trying to deal with everything herself, which only worsened the situation.
“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,” she said.
