“Sometimes looks can be deceiving…”

“Sometimes looks can be deceiving. I look healthy and strong on the outside, but inside something is broken. I am the mother of four healthy children, but it was a struggle to get them here safely. I have spent weeks in the hospital, months and months on bedrest, refill after refill of terrifying pre-term labor meds, and have had several scary surgical procedures to help my babies stay put. By the 3rd baby, I was told that a cerclage would help me carry to term. Much to my delight, it did. My last two babies were delivered full-term without extended hospital stays or endless months of bedrest. The road wasn’t completely smooth, but much more manageable. I was able to hold them right away and breastfeed them immediately. It was wonderful and something so many moms might take for granted.”
