“Excitement. Power. Fear. Confusion. Separation. Strength. Prayer. Exhaustion. Unconditional love.
This experience was far beyond what I ever could have imagined. There is so much I would have done differently but I know that everything happened for a reason.
Labor was intense, it lasted about 11 hours. My water broke in the middle of the night around 145am on the 3rd of April. I started dilating on my own, and was ready to push but 1015am. I pushed for 2 hours and 1 minute. My beautiful angel arrived at 1216pm April 3rd 2020.
Immediately after delivering my placenta, I began to haemorrhage. They thought it was a laceration in my vagina or from my perineum but unfortunately, it was my cervix and uterus that tore, and I was also bleeding internally.
“In the 50 years of my practice I’ve never seen something like this” – my doctor told my husband.
Adelyn is perfect. Healthy. Happy. I can’t believe my miracle is here in my arms. I cry and thank God constantly, as well as all of you who have shown us love and prayers, we’ve heard them.
