I wasn’t sure where to put this, babies seemed appropriate but feel free to rehome if needed!
I have a dear friend who I’ve known for many many years who is pregnant with their first child.
They were told a couple months ago that their baby has gastrochisis. In plain English, the babies abdominal wall did not develop properly and the intestine are exposed. Baby will need to be c sec about one month early to ensure no birthig complications and to get surgery done in time. Survival rates are up to about 90% with a normal life expectancy with proper intervention prior to birth.
And as if they didn’t have enough on her plate, she has gone into preterm labour. They have stopped it for now but theyre keeping her in hospital because labour would be very bad.
So, my plea to you all is for prayers, well wishes, anything you’ve got to send to the universe and ask for her to be okay. If I can have one thing for Christmas this year, let it be the baby staying in the oven!!
I know youre all practically strangers to me and totally strangers to her. I have seen what rallying of support can do so if you have a prayer or a wish for her, we would really appreciate it!!
