Micro Preemie Monday
Thank you for joining me for another Micro Preemie Monday. If you missed last week’s Micro Preemie Monday, you can read the story right HERE.
Today, we will meet Zowie, as told by her mom, Brianna.
1. Tell us about your baby.
2. How long was your NICU Stay? What was the hardest part?
3. Do you know what caused your premature birth?
4. How are you and your baby doing today?
5. What advice do you have for other preemie parents?
Talk to other preemie parents. They can really help because they have been there.
Thank you so much for sharing Zowie and your story with us on Micro Preemie Monday, Brianna.
Being on bedrest for an extended period of time can be extremely difficult, especially in the hospital. I was on bedrest at home for most of my pregnancy with the twins, but was only in the hospital for the last two weeks. Both were hard, but being in the hospital was even harder for me with my 2-year-old at home. I can imagine it was very hard for Brianna too, since she also had another child.
Even though Zowie was born early, it should still bring some hope to those in a similar situation. That rescue stitch, also called a cerclage, really made a difference and gave Brianna 6 more weeks.
It’s also really great for me, personally, to see a micro preemie at this age, since the twins will be 4 on their next birthday.
