How I Found Release in Writing a NICU Fairytale

Reading now: 265

It was one week before my daughter was born when we learned things were not going as planned. Large measurements led to an ultrasound that led to more tests, which led to problematic findings in the baby’s heart, bones, spine, and most concerning — the brain.

All of our birthing plans changed and before we could get a handle on all that was coming, we were delivering our baby girl via c-section.

We named her Charlee. We were in the NICU with Charlee for 48 days. It was not a good place for us. At first it felt like we were there to receive support through the bradycardias and oxygen desaturations until Charlee got stronger and outgrew them.
