My Second Pregnancy Crisis
My first pregnancy was considered high-risk due to EDS. Thankfully, I didn’t have any serious complications and was able to deliver via cesarean at 38 weeks. After a few years, my husband and I felt that our family needed to grow.
We knew that another pregnancy would be high-risk, but we decided to move forward, knowing that we could handle any potential repercussions.
We never imagined we would go through such a significant challenge that was not related to EDS. Watch the video below to hear about how I persevered during and after a life-altering diagnosis.
Today, and every day, no matter what uninvited challenges arrive, I choose to live every moment through the eyes of positivity, perseverance, and personal power.
