Top Celebrities have jumped in to stand with Actress Chantelle after her plea to Kenyans to help her clear her hospital bill.
In a Instagram post, the singer who doubles as an actress said her birth process was not a walk in the park. Completely saddened, the new mum said she had to endure three surgeries after welcoming her bundle of joy.
Since her delivery, the Actress has had three surgeries and she is scheduled for her fourth.
“I won’t lie, having a birth injury specifically a 3rd degree tear and fistula isn’t easy. I usually feel so guilty that I can’t cuddle with my love for more than 5 mins, change her diaper or breastfeed all because of the amount of pain I feel in my perinial area while sitting/standing.” she said the post
The Actress says that her delivery process led on to emotional mental and physical challenges and although she had not thought of crowdfunding, she thought of considering it.
This evening, Janet Mbugua took to social media to urge Kenyans to show love and support even as she awaits to go for another surgery.
Akothee responded on the post pledging her contribution. Have a look at the post by Janet Mbugua.

I watched @chantelle_petit’s labour and delivery story on YouTube and I’m just so upset and sad. She didn’t have to go through the pain and agony she did. She’s now prepping for her 4th surgery while trying to figure out what to do with her newborn. It’s heartbreaking. The least we could do is share our love and support with her and with the thousands of others who are going through this pain. Support Chantelle by reading the details in this poster. But we need an end game here. We need a solution, we need better health care, we need to do better as a country. #MaternalHealth #Fistula #WeMustDoMore
