All birth stories matter. Mikki’s preeclampsia birth story is an honest look at how you can’t set expectations for your birth and motherhood. Stories like Mikki’s that aren’t rainbows and sunshine teach us the great importance of listening to our bodies.
To know, as Mikki did, when something is wrong.
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!
