Ntombee Mzolo has embarked on a digital pregnancy awareness campaign to help expectant mothers.
The singer made the announcement on Monday – the start of Pregnancy Awareness Week.
She says she will be supporting the health department’s initiative to educate women on how they can maintain a health pregnancy.
Ntombee, who is a mother of three, added that’s she will be dedicating the remaining Mondays of February to sharing “informative posts” for all her “gorgeous preggies”.
“I will impart my little knowledge and share some of my personal experiences with the hope that my gorgeous preggies will take away a thing or two from it and possibly experience a smoother, simpler, and healthier pregnancy journey,” she wrote.
Her tips will focus on physical, emotional, spiritual and financial health during pregnancy.
Ntombee says “you can never be too prepared for a baby” – something she learned from her three pregnancies.
Her fans praised her for taking the initiative, with many women saying they had a lot of questions about pregnancy.
Ntombee says she is more than happy to help and shared a personal story about a difficult time in her life – the moment she lost her son.
Her son, Dunamis Sizwe Junior Asande Mzolo, died soon after he was born in 2015.
He suffered from hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a rare heart condition which prevented the left side of his heart from developing properly.
“As much as some things can’t be avoided, I think it is very important to take all the necessary precautions to avoid finding ourselves in situations that may lead to miscarriage, premature labour, giving birth to a still born or having to deal with an infant death… It’s unfortunate that there was nothing I could have done differently to change the situation that led to my son’s death but you could be in a better position,” she shared.
One of her followers shared her own tragic story of losing her baby.
“I don’t think I can be pregnant again. My first and last left me traumatised. I envy pregnant women… but my pregnancy was thee most AMAZING nine months and gave birth to the cutest baby girl and boom she dies eight days after birth,” the user commented.
Ntombee told the woman not to give up hope.
“I made a conscious decision of not allowing the past to stand in the way of my future and my latest experience has honestly healed my soul in a way I never imagined possible. My daughter will never take the place of son but she has definitely filled my heart and I am in a better place. GOD BLESS YOU MAMA,” she replied.
Ntombee says pre-pregnancy care and planning is an important first step on your journey to pregnancy and eventually becoming a mother.
“Unless you are caught off guard mama, it is very important to plan for your pregnancy at least six months before conceiving.”
The TV presenter added that “there’s nothing more fulfilling” than knowing you are well prepared for your pregnancy.
“The first thing you’ll need to do is to see your doctor for a full medical check-up to ensure that you don’t have any underlying medical conditions that could cause complications during pregnancy. The advantage of doing this is that you can take all the [necessary] treatments and corrective measures to make sure that by the time that miraculous seed is planted in you, you have eliminated any possible problem and have laid the best foundation for a safe and healthy pregnancy.”
We are looking forward to Ntombee’s next ‘Mommy Time Monday’!

Most people know that February is the month of Love but only a few know that in this month we also observe the Pregnancy Awareness Week. In support of the department of health's vision to educute expectant women on how to maintain a healthy pregnancy and as a mother of three, I have decided to embark on a digital pregnancy awareness campaign throughout the month of February. Starting from today, 11 February 2019, I will impart my little knowledge and share some of my personal experiences with the hope that my gorgeous preggies will take away a thing or two from it and possibly experience a smoother, simpler, and healthier pregnancy journey. From my 3 pregnancies learned that you can never be too prepared for a pregnancy or a baby but it is crucial that you somehow prepare yourself as much as you can physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially and otherwise to make this miraculous journey as smooth as possible. With the lengthy research i have done, i have selected the remaining Mondays of the this month for informative posts for all the my gorgeous 'Preggies'. Wednesdays and Fridays are for pregilicious give aways!!! Please feel free to share your own experiences and tips as we build each other. Remember, The aim is not to scare our 'preggies' but to make their journey memorable, safe and enjoyable. Go out there and tell your preggies to tell their preggies to join us for an Epic experience. Stay blessed❤ #pregnancyawarenessweek #pregnancyawarenessmonth #holdingontomypreciousgift #mommytimemonday #mommytime

Thank you my Gorgeous preggies and yummy mommies for opening up your hearts to this platform. The little we can do together can definitely make a huge difference in the next person's life. The 1st thing I would like us to discuss is 'Pre Pregnancy care and planning'. Unless you are caught off guard mama, like most of us have been at times🙈 it is very important to plan for your pregnancy at least 6 months before conceiving. Carrying a life is not pap and vleis and you need to be in your best shape physically and emotionally to ensure that you and the little miracle that will be growing in you are as healthy as you both can possibly be. We all know that we can't afford to be sick when pregnant as we are adviced that most medical treatments may cause harm to our unborn babies or even induce early labour. As much as some things can't be avoided, I think it is very important to take all the necessary precautions to avoid finding ourselves in situations that may lead to miscarriage, premature labour, giving birth to a still born or having to deal with an infant death. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry. It's unfortunate that there was nothing I could have done differently to change the situation that led to my son's death but you could be in a better position… There's nothing more fulfilling than knowing that you did everything in your power to make the situation better and get the best results. With that said, the 1st thing you'll need to do is to see your Doctor for a full medical check up to ensure that you don't have any underlying medical conditions that could cause complications during pregnancy. The advantage of doing this is that you can take all the necessarily treatments and corrective measures to make sure that by the time that miraculous seed is planted in you, you have eliminated any possible problem and have laid the best foundation for a safe and healthy pregnancy. It's Mommy Time Monday, so let's converse and build one another and please feel free to share your experiences and add anything that you feel I may have left out.❤️ Enjoy the process of trying to get pregnant😜 Goodluck and God bless you. #mommytimemonday #motherof3
