Unheard cries: A deaf mum’s story – BBC Africa

Having a baby can have a huge and sometimes unexpected effect on a parent’s mental health. But have you ever thought how it is for deaf mothers?

Catherine talks about her experiences as a new mother, her diagnosis of postpartum depression, and how she was able to work through such challenging period in her life, thanks to the support from an organisation in Nairobi, Kenya which helps deaf mothers through postpartum depression.

Produced by Anne Okumu and Anthony Irungu

Voiceover by Esther Ogola

Edited by Anne Okumu

Executive producer: Connor Boals

    6. What about the deaf ears of BBC to the truth of Africans! That is worse. Stop your fake representation of the African people and our continent! Find the deaf in Europe! We Ethiopians and the prime minister are calling all brown and black people around the world to join this fight in Ethiopia. western white supremacists and Egypt have joined the terrorist agenda to overthrow our elected government and to colonize Ethiopia the symbol of black and brown freedom. All western powers are destabilizing Africa in the face of new African awakening to self rule and new economic activities on the continent to use its own resources! We call to all Africans to join the Ethiopian people and the Ethiopian government in eradicating the terrorist TPLF and its neocolonial masters. Join us fast and join us now. Respond to the prime minister call and to the Ethiopian people! The fight is black and brown vs white supremacy with its agenda to grab African land and resources! Western looters have only belly to eat black and brown people alive. Their belly only hears the language of hard force! They have not ears! No reason to waste time on demonstrations that can’t be objectively presented by their global embedded disinforming media. The have killed and imprisoned our leaders around the globe for years. The have looted our continent. Their embassies and diplomats are nothing but spies dividing our people and aiding terrorist to destabilize our government and our people and they need to be forced out of Africa. African solution for African problems! We blackAfrican Nile nations will power, drink and irrigate from Nile whether Egypt like or not. The renaissance dam the greatest dam of Africa will be complete and will power the Horn of Africa! We will remain free, we will fight all our life for the economic and political freedom of all black and brown people around the world. Join the fight!

    7. A deaf mother’’ the title itself is heartbreaking 💔 she deserve to get helped 🤐🤐imagine her baby crying at 2:am and deaf mama can’t hear her

    8. What a wonderful story, kudos to the founder of this organization/support group. It is sad though that the fathers are not involved. why the mothers have to suffer alone??
