Being pregnant after a preemie is one of the most mentally challenging things I’ve done. People often ask me what was the second factor on having another baby after Jaxson. My number 1 answer is: “Choosing the RIGHT DOCTOR!” And on February 11th, we were beyond grateful for the choice we made. I delivered a healthy baby girl via scheduled C-Section at 38 weeks which was our goal. I cried tears of joy on the operating room table as my OB held my baby girl up for me to see. it was such sweet relief! And to see how equally happy my Doctor was for us was the icing on the cake.
Since recently opening up about my miscarriage, I have received so many messages from women who too have gone through the same thing. Some have gone through pregnancy related issues and had never spoken about it. The fact that miscarriage is SO common and often a conversation many people avoid, the truth of the matter is that it happens and there should be NO SHAME attached to it. The topic shouldn't be taboo...our scars and our pain can help someone else! While initially I was nervous to share, I felt the tug in my spirit and I wanted to be obedient to what God has called me to do.
