Share with us about your pregnancy journey/s! How was it like? Did you face any difficulties?
Both of my pregnancies were really tough. With my first I was considered high risk and hospitalized several times. My placenta ruptured at 27 weeks. My daughter and I were luckily in the hospital when it happened. She spent 4 months in the NICU. My second pregnancy I was high risk again with my history of preterm labor. At 23 weeks I began dilating and my cervix was funneling. My dr said he wasn’t comfortable taking care of me at this point and sent me to a bigger hospital. I had an emergency cerclage placed at 24 weeks and was able to carry him to 36 weeks.
What was it like: life with a newborn just after birth? Any challenges or struggles that you faced, if so, how did you deal with it?
Both of my babies had NICU stays. My first 4 months and one month for my second. I felt invisible and like I couldn’t be their mother and I fell into a deep depression. Once I brought them home it got better and we transitioned well but still faced many obstacles.

The love. The amount of love I have for my babies and they have for me is overwhelming. They truly look at me like I hung the moon.

Advice you would give to other new parents or parents-to-be about parenthood:
Just trust yourself! Every baby and every parent is different. Advice is great but it’s not one size fits all.
