When you are experiencing a complicated pregnancy or a NICU stay, it is sometimes hard to see the good. It is a scary and emotional time, but sometimes a premature birth is actually a blessing.
It may save a baby’s life.
I know that my premature birth saved my twins’ lives.
If I had not been in the hospital, or heard that slow heart rate, my boys may not have made it. While it was way too early, the outside world was still a better place for them to be. It gave them a fighting chance at life. They had simply run out of options in my womb.
Being in the hospital and delivering my boys at 25 weeks, 5 days was a blessing in disguise.
Today’s family experience the same type of blessing.
The series of events that led to a premature birth truly needed to happen. Lives were saved because of it.
I’m so happy to introduce you to Xavier, who truly is a blessing.
1. Tell us about your baby.
My feisty preemie boy Xavier was born August 17th, 2017 at 26 weeks and 5 days. He was due November 17, 2017, (World Prematurity Day ) by the way, so I feel he was always meant to be a preemie . He was 1 pound and 8 oz,11 inches long . Xavier was born just crying and ready to be out in the world .
