Former Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua had to spend an extra two weeks in hospital after giving birth to her second born Mali Mwaura Ndichu. 

Mbugua, in a live session with her fans on Instagram, shared that she had to undergo surgery after delivering her new born. 

"It was insane, I underwent a surgical procedure next to my newborn. I had multiple meltdowns and I thank my family members (both mine and my hubby's) for being supportive. They were there for me. Most incredible families," narrated Mbugua. 

According to Mbugua, the baby was born at 1.42PM weighing in at 3.8kg and in perfect health but she needed medical attention.

"I was hospitalised for two weeks and have been on a recovery journey for one and a half weeks. It has been really tough, but I'm back getting healthier," she said. 

"I needed a minute to get into routine with my new-born baby, and it's fairing on well. I thank God for my life because people go through worse during childbirth. Glad to be back, healthier and happy," she explained.

The revelation comes after the former TV personality who had kept off social media for almost a month made a comeback and promised fans to open up on why she left.  

"Been a minute. Healthier, happier, after a pretty scary stint. Would love to catch up with you all on IG Live at 10 am tomorrow. I’ve missed y’all! Details on my absence plus it’s a special." she said in the post.
