Katie: Third "Grand Finale Baby," Termination For Medical Reasons, Second Trimester Loss, 34 Week C-Section, NICU Stay
Manage episode 347654223 series 3358405
Part two of Katie's Birth Stories. On this episode, Katie tells us about her third “grand finale” pregnancy and baby. She had just gone through a termination for medical reasons, a second trimester loss, a pandemic, on top of her best friend’s diagnosis with terminal cancer. She again battled with high blood pressure readings and had to stay a week in the hospital and then have bi-weekly OB visits, all while managing two other children at home. At 34 weeks, the decision to schedule her third c-section was difficult to hear so Katie prepared for a long NICU stay. She also wanted to get her tubes tied during the section. Her recovery went well and baby Stephen only had a week-long NICU stay as opposed to the month long planned stay. Navigating the postpartum period was tough after so many losses but Katie felt a healing presence from her newborn baby.
