Ntombee has walked through healing since 2015, after the death of her son, who suffered from a rare heart condition called Hypo-plastic left heart syndrome.
The star has healed from the pain as she’s had other children to fill the vacum. However, since February is the month of love and pregnancy awareness week is included, she’s taken time to digitally create awareness and educate pregnant women on how to be prepared.
“In support of the department of health’s vision to educate expectant women on how to maintain a healthy pregnancy and as a mother of three, I have decided to embark on a digital pregnancy awareness campaign throughout the month of February. Starting from today, 11 February 2019, I will impart my little knowledge and share some of my personal experiences with the hope that my gorgeous preggies will take away a thing or two from it and possibly experience a smoother, simpler, and healthier pregnancy journey.”
“The 1st thing I would like us to discuss is ‘Pre Pregnancy care and planning’. Unless you are caught off guard mama, like most of us have been at times. it is very important to plan for your pregnancy at least 6 months before conceiving. Carrying a life is not pap and vleis and you need to be in your best shape physically and emotionally to ensure that you and the little miracle that will be growing in you are as healthy as you both can possibly be. We all know that we can’t afford to be sick when pregnant as we are adviced that most medical treatments may cause harm to our unborn babies or even induce early labour. As much as some things can’t be avoided, I think it is very important to take all the necessary precautions to avoid finding ourselves in situations that may lead to miscarriage, premature labour, giving birth to a still born or having to deal with an infant death. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry.”
“It’s unfortunate that there was nothing I could have done differently to change the situation that led to my son’s death but you could be in a better position… There’s nothing more fulfilling than knowing that you did everything in your power to make the situation better and get the best results. With that said, the 1st thing you’ll need to do is to see your Doctor for a full medical check up to ensure that you don’t have any underlying medical conditions that could cause complications during pregnancy. The advantage of doing this is that you can take all the necessarily treatments and corrective measures to make sure that by the time that miraculous seed is planted in you, you have eliminated any possible problem and have laid the best foundation for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”
