Isaac Mwaura’s wife addresses insensitive questions regarding her son

The Mwauras

Only a mother knows the pain of her child and when you question her child, you are rattling a snake to say the least.

Taking to her social media audience, wife to nominated senator Isaac Mwaura revealed the insensitive questions and remarks people have been making about their son.

Born a preemie, their one year old son Njiru Maigua Mwaura, was born at only 28 weeks alongside his siblings Mwaura Maigua and Njeri Maigua who unfortunately did not make it after 3 months at Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

‘’I must admit, being a Preemie mum is not easy. The worst part about it is dealing with questions about delayed milestones. My son will be turning one year 5 months on 19th June. But since he turned one every most people I meet are always asking if he is walking ... others ask me if I have checked his calcium levels to see if he has a problem ... others who are close to me tell me I don’t walk him enough that’s why he is not walking. Other self-appointed nutritionists will tell me he is too small for his age ... he does not weigh as much... who died and appointed you the distributor of weight?’’ her long post read in part.

Out to set her critics straight, Mukami did not mince her words and it is obvious some of the comments have rubbed her off the wrong way.

Speaking of her son, the mother of one is certain her child’s health is in order asking those who feel they are well versed with raising children to think first before asking questions.

‘’The thing is every child is different. I know my child is doing great considering his birth weight and his history ... so I don’t need you to highlight it after seeing him for one hour. People really don’t understand how some questions and comments hurt... We should endeavour to understand and appreciate that every child is different. Halafu be sensitive ... empathize before you ask some hurtful questions.’’ She wrote.

Mukami and Mwaura have been married for three years.
