Yesterday social media got buzzing with Sethunya Maele’s story on single motherhood. We thought this might inspire you too. This is what she has to share with friends and followers;
“I’m single…and I have been since June 2016 when I got pregnant, and the man who got me pregnant left soon as he learnt i was expecting. I went to gynae appointments alone & paid for them without any assistance, I was alone during 8 hrs of labour & an emergency c section delivery! No one was there to give me foot massages or care for all my cravings…it was a complete solo mission!
I had always badly wanted a baby and that is why I was ready to have it even in the absence of it’s father, and I carried my pregnancy with grace! I ate very healthy and worked out until my baby was born. 2 months post delivery i learnt that the same man got another girl pregnant during my pregnancy and she was to give birth 4 months after me and our kids were born the same year…….im currently single handedly raising my beautiful baby boy!”
