Oluwabamike Olawunmi, also known as BamBam of the popular reality show Big Brother Naija, gave an exclusive interview on #WithChude about her journey into motherhood and the support of her incredible husband.
Through this conversation, I realized mothers go through a lot, and they barely talk about these things in our community.
Here are 3 major things I learned from Bambam in this exclusive interview.
- Motherhood comes with physical changes, which include weight gain, skin changes, postpartum depression, and a lot more. Bambam candidly shares the physical transformations she underwent during pregnancy. Her appreciation for a supportive husband underscores the significance of cultivating self-love and embracing acceptance throughout the transformative stages of motherhood.
- The crucial role of a supportive partner during pregnancy and postpartum has helped many women overcome societal shame. Having a husband who understands and embraces the changes, both physical and emotional, can significantly contribute to a mother’s well-being.
- Bambam’s mention of preeclampsia emphasizes the importance of prenatal care. Diligence with antenatal classes, taking vitamins, and regular medical check-ups can contribute to a healthier pregnancy and reduce the risks associated with complications.
This is interview was real and human in every way.
