After having a perfect pregnancy and going into labor full term, I expected to give birth to a healthy baby girl. We never imagined our daughter having an in utero stroke, was even a possibility.
An emergency C-Section, 11 days in the NICU, and what felt like a million tests later, we had more questions than answers. What little information we were given about her health moving forward, was vague & upsetting. We were overwhelmed with the prospect of caring for a new baby, none the less adding in her extra needs.
The hospital social workers had given us so much info, but I honestly don't even remember half of what they said. It was just too much on top of everything else & we couldn't process it all.
