Kambua would feel sad whenever someone got pregnant: ‘Pregnancy announcements can be serious triggers. I have lived it’

Every time gospel singer Kambua would see a post of someone announcing her pregnancy, she would cringe.

She’d feel depressed and wondered why not her.

We all know how tough the journey to motherhood has been for her and her husband Jackson Mathu. And now that she’s carrying her first baby after being married for six years …. she can only imagine how others experiencing the same feel.

“My journey is a miracle whose details I still haven’t shared. One day I will. But as God continues to write my story and perfect what He began, let me share my heart with you,” she posted on social media.

“For waiting wombs, pregnancy announcements can be serious triggers. I have lived it – how you just want to be so happy for others but somehow your own grief and struggle overwhelms you.”


Kambua broke down and become visibly frustrated in the years before she became pregnant. Social media also wasn’t giving her a break as fans kept on pestering her with questions on when she’s planning to bless Mathu with a baby.

“I’ve been around long enough and been through enough to know that pregnancy journeys are not perfect- far from it. They are messy, hope-filled, scary, joyful, and just very… complicated,” she continued.

“But my years of waiting allowed God to deal with my heart. He taught me that He was enough for me, and that I was complete in Him. I didn’t know how or when God would turn the tide for me, I did however know, that even when it hurt beyond words, my trust would always be in Him.”


Kambua had a message for all the ladies experiencing these tormenting thoughts; Keep believing.

“For any woman whose pain was triggered by my announcement, I have prayed that God will turn your darkness into a spark of hope,” She said.

“I pray that your faith is renewed in knowing that His power knows no bounds. I pray that you find yourself whole in Him. Motherhood does not complete us; God does. Motherhood is a great calling, but it’s not the only calling.

“If you’re on this journey, drop me a 💓, I will be praying with and for you.
God asked Abraham, “Is anything too hard for the LORD”? So I ask you today beloved, “Is anything too hard for Him”?”
