Mikki experienced a pregnancy loss, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, c-section, and depression. Add to that, as Mikki was still recovering from a DNC procedure to remove retained placenta, her newborn daughter had surgery a month after she was born.

Her story is raw.

Her strength is admirable.

All birth stories matter. All mothers matter.

This is Mikki’s story!
