Denise Zimba details her pregnancy and birthing journey

In a delayed announcement post late on Tuesday, 9 July 2019, Denise Zimba revealed that she gave birth last Monday, 1 July 2019.

Through a cryptic social media post, South African media personality, Denise Zimba, revealed that she has given birth. Denise posted a picture that seems to be her baby’s birth date, a white background with numbers separated by dots inscribed in black ink. According to the post, Zimba gave birth on Monday, 1 July 2019. In the caption, Denise writes “48 hours of no sleep, 24 hours of labour, emergency C-Section and I am absolutely in love”.

Congratulatory messages flooded Denise’s post announcing the birth date of her baby. Celebrities such as Lorna Maseko, Pearl Modiadie, Moneoa and many others have since shared messages of love to the new mom, following the post.

Denise first broke the news of her pregnancy on Instagram during the month of May when she posted several pictures of herself affectionately holding her pregnant belly. In the post, she wrote a long caption on the tough journey to falling pregnant. She revealed that a doctor once diagnosed her with endometriosis that put her under intensive treatment and thus meant she had an extremely narrow chance of conceiving. Sharing in depth, she went on to further illustrate how, against all odds, she still managed to fall pregnant, and found out when she turned 30.

In a post on Instagram on Thursday, 6 June 2019, Denise complained about how her back hurt badly and how she was ready for the baby to come. Almost a month later she has given birth.

Denise has not yet shared the gender of her baby.

My doctor said I had endometriosis, and an urgent treatment was needed, which meant falling pregnant was indefinitely placed on the back burner. Only 1% possibility to conceive, even after treatment for some time. I was shocked, and felt less of a woman. I was not eager to fall pregnant, but it has always been important to me to have a family one day. I thought WOW! … I didn’t realize that falling pregnant can be quite a difficult and physically painful experience. It became clear that breaking away from work, and focusing on my family, the here and now that was incredibly fruitful and exciting, needed my entire focus. I have a beautiful relationship with an exceptional man, who I had to give up a few things – for the meantime – to nourish the partnership, and protect the process. For once I was truly happy just being, no set life, no hustle, no need to be relevant, and knowing that I am truly blessed to have a partner who could support that. On my 30th Birthday, I found out I was pregnant! My baby decided that anything is possible, even while my body was under construction. My human made its way through all odds, and was that 1% POSSIBILITY. I couldn’t believe it 😳😝… Clearly my endometriosis, intense treatment, and me not feeling ready to be a mom, was delaying the work of the universe. This has been quite a tough journey thus far. I thought I would love being pregnant – uuuuuh it’s hurts and it’s dang hard! 😂. But I am so grateful to be alive, and able to carry another human. ITS CRAZY. It has definitely changed me. I am scared to be a mom, and I guess one is never ready for the changes and challenges. But I vow to kick ass, and raise an authentic, brave and kind human. Heres to struggle and triumph 🥂 Denise Zimba 💜 ———————— Is it a boy or a girl? We decided to wait and find out at birth. Names? Once it pops out of my vagina, I shall call something out 😂 Will baby have an Instagram account ? Nope! We chose for our child to decide how he or she would want to introduce him or herself to the world. Unless an infant has valuable influence on grown folk things that I don’t know about (I will need to research). 📸Photographer: @shootmickshoot
