Popular comedian and media personality Auntie Jemimah whose real name is Wangari Wanguri has come out to strongly condemn people claiming that baby showers kill babies.
In a video on her Facebook page, the 32-year old says the narrative is misguided and termed it as ‘ignorant, shallow and unschooled’
“I went for that baby bump shoot because I carried the pregnancy so beautifully. Saying I lost my baby because of the bump is shallow because you are ignoring health and medical factors,” she stated.
The influencer who recently lost her newborn daughter says most netizens blamed the loss on her for flaunting the bump with a maternity shoot.
Jemimah asked people to stop victimizing mothers who have suffered a loss saying they should be allowed to mourn.
In rejoinder, Auntie Jemimah announced the loss of her newborn daughter at birth on October 1.
Taking to social media, Jemimah said she gave birth to her baby girl Nduta at 34 weeks but sadly she had passed on.
“On 29:9:21, my girl arrived at 34weeks, sleeping. I held her in my arms and said goodbye. I am broken, oh so broken that there was nothing I could do to bring her back to life. I therefore will be taking a sabbatical to mourn my Nduta the best way I know how and for as long as it takes. Thank you for the love and support. Auntie will be back,” she wrote.
Auntie Jemimah had announced her pregnancy on her 32nd birthday with a caption:
”32.New chapter.New Title.”
