Vera Sidika, a popular Kenyan socialite who is 8 months pregnant, has explained why she chose to give birth in Kenya rather than the United States.
The socialite stated in her Instagram stories that she still has a valid US visa but chose to stay in Kenya out of fear of being lonely in the US.
Sidika stated that she couldn’t bear the thought of being away from her family and friends for 4-6 months throughout her pregnancy. She believes she made the correct decision since she has enjoyed her pregnant experience.
She wrote on her story;
“I almost travelled to give birth in USA. Since my 5 years Visa is valid. But this Covid pandemic isn’t fun. Then again, we couldn’t handle the idea of being Away from family and friends during my pregnancy for 4-6 months.
While pregnant. You need all the love, affection from friends, family. On a regular.
Being in a foreign country where everyone is super busy, working 2 or more jobs to even have time for you. Can be every depressing. Especially in this pandemic. You all just end up alone while everyone’s at work. I made the right decision and I have enjoyed my entored pregnancy journey. Nothing beats Home”
The socialite also shared a glimpse into her pregnancy experience, saying she still doesn’t feel pregnant despite being 8 months along.
Sidika, who stated that she has not experienced morning sickness or exhaustion like some pregnant women, stated that the only changes she has experienced are that her tummy has grown larger and there is a small human kicking continuously.
