During a recent episode of her Diary Session show on YouTube, the sangoma opened up about the hardships she went through while pregnant and her motherhood journey.

“When the pregnancy started, it was not an easy time. It was not a joyous time. But I think me coming home was the perfect thing because it made me focus on my pregnancy, it made me focus on my baby and that is when I started to look at things differently,” she said.

Mphowabadimo – who is a mother to two boys – said that there were many instances during her first trimester where she felt like she was going to have give birth prematurely because of the stress she suffered.

The businesswoman said that motherhood is priceless and she wants to raise her boys the right way despite them having different father.

“I don’t want to raise my children as a broken parent. I want to raise them as a happy, healthy, free and strong woman that I am. I am not a single mother. I am a boy mom to two amazing boys.”
