According to the Lola hitmaker, no period is more difficult than what women go through after delivering their babies.

Nadia noted that while pregnancy is a walk in the park, post-partum i.e. the period after putting to bed takes a toll on many women.

She lauded African women for being strong and not yielding to people's demands to give away their babies.

"I think most places need to focus on postpartum. Pregnancy is easy (I think it's easier compared to that period after giving birth).

"Sheesh! Women are strong and we black/ African women are not allowed to say this. Utaambiwa leta  mtoto ni/tulee kama amekushinda," she wrote.

Further, the musician explained that she never understood what post partum was really about until she had a baby.

Nadia, whose son turned four months old on Sunday, asked her fans to check on new moms and give them the support that they need.

In May this year, during a Q & A session on her Instagram page, Nadia revealed that although she has had a good time raising her son, Haseeb Kai, the experience has had its fair share of challenges.

According to the musician, raising a newborn baby required her to eat enough food to be able to provide milk for her child.

“I had never been heavier than 55Kgs but now I am 63kgs because I am breastfeeding exclusively so I have to eat a lot every now and then. It is a sacrifice because I don’t want to lack milk.

“Breastfeeding is work. It's not as easy as it seems. Actually, you gain more weight during breastfeeding than during pregnancy,” Nadia stated

In a past interview with YouTuber Mungai Eve, the talented songstress let it slip that she made up her mind to quit going to the gym after giving birth because she felt it was too painful.

Nadia explained that although she was really keen on losing the baby fat, she did not want to pile pressure on herself.

"I've once gone to the gym and my wound started becoming painful so I had to put a pause and then you'll find people saying, 'Oh, you've put on weight' but I know I'm not putting pressure on myself because I have a wound. 

"So I am doing simple exercises, like walking or if I'm in the gym, I am just doing the treadmill only. There's no need to give myself pressure then I go back in for another surgery," she explained.
