“I was wearing it 24/7 and this one morning I fainted and I was rushed to hospital I couldn’t breathe. They found out and I told my husband not to tell my mum. People walk around with this belt and you can’t breathe, all for what!”
Amina who is a mother of one opened up about her experience as a first-time mum. She said it is not as pretty and picture-perfect as people put it on the gram.
“For me, I thought it was because that was my first child, I was like I didn’t know anything. It was so painful, people lie they just show you this beautiful amazing life, all these planned photoshoots when the baby is not crying and throwing themselves on the floor, people just show you a very different side of it.”
