Actress Mona Monyane has been through a lot in the past year.
She lost her newborn baby at only seven days old.
The child was her and husband, Khulu Skenjana's, second child.
Mona opened to Newzroom Afrika about the devastating loss as part of her #PowerOfWellness campaign.
Mona said she realised, during her grieving process, how important it was to prioritise her health.
There was a point when the actress feared she would not be able to get back to her sane and healthy self.
She told Newzroom Afrika, "After the seven days, she passed away, and it all just felt like it was too much."
"It felt like I was losing my mind because my career and everything had been put on hold, and now this child (for whom it was done) was not here."
Mona is well on her way to full recovery and is hoping to help others through her #PowerOfWellness movement.
