Karen had a typical pregnancy up until the last few scary days when she was unable to feel her daughter move. After following her mother instinct, Karen went to the hospital and quickly learned she would need an emergent c-section. As emergencies go, everything was unexpected.

In this episode, Karen walks us through what her daughter’s birth and subsequent NICU stay was like. She talks about the unknown’s of her daughter’s health as well as how difficult it was to be away from her in those first 48 hours.

Karen shares with us how her husband and a dear friend who stayed at the hospital with her until 2 a.m. helped her cope, and encourages other mothers going through similar situations to know that they are not alone.
