“On May 29th, 2017 at 7:08 pm, our beautiful daughter Amabelle Luna was born via an amazingly calm c-section. She was only 2 lbs 9 oz.
After a moment of silence, Amabelle came out kicking and crying. “Her lungs are fully developed!!!,” I remember telling myself. Irving and I were able to see Amabelle for a couple of seconds before she was rushed off to the NICU. She was so tiny. The nurse held her in the palm of her hands, her face was red and wrinkly, she was wearing a beanie, and her little body was wrapped in a blanket.
After the delivery, my blood pressure was through the roof, and I had to be constantly monitored and continue to have magnesium IVs in case of seizures. I was still unaware of what was happening or what could happen to me. Once again, I just knew that I had to let the doctors and nurses do their job. I spent another week in the hospital post delivery, with occasional opportunities to visit Amabelle in the NICU. It wasn’t easy, but our daughter was my drive to get better so that I could be there for her; so that I could be the strong healthy mother that I knew I needed to be for her and that she needed more than ever.” - find out how despite being diagnosed with preeclampsia this mama kept a positive outlook and had the birth of dreams in link in profile. #csectionawarenessmonth #cesareanawarenessmonth #cesereanbirth #cesereanbirthisbirth #csection #csectionmom #preeclampsiasurvivor #preeclampsia #preemiebaby #preemiebaby #preemiestrong
