Its labour day today. The day is set aside for the many people who work for The Man to make him richer. It is also a day with a large number of people being born. Somehow many women go into labour and produce children in droves on this day.
So how do you announce that you are with child and will be in labour soon? It used to be a very private affair once in a while. You would tell your family and friends that you were with child and the world would get into a guessing game as you started getting bigger. Especially if you got married recently. Some never got that big so it was not that easy to know why you were lost for a few weeks. Or you became really big and folks would keep asking you when you were due. This they would do as they listened to your belly for kicking or maybe words of wisdom.
There is a new way to do it nowadays. You could be pictured on the cover of Pregnant Magazine if you are prominent enough. Or you could do a tasteful photo shoot and post the photos to your Facebook page and wow your friends. At least this is the trend if the new photos posted by popular radio host Mwalimu Rachel and Model/entreprenuer Dorothy Oliech are anything to go by.
