Motherhood

Infertility

She suffered infertility issues for over five years because of uterine fibroids. Her doctors suggested her to undergo hysterectomy, some told her that she is not going to get pregnant ever. She was 38 year old at the time getting pregnant seemed impossible.

She found a specialist in fibroids who promised her she didn't need hysterctomy and and performed fibroid myomectomy surgery to remove the fibroids. Still she wasn't getting pregnant.

In 2020, during the Covid lockdown times, she decided that she needed to make lifestyle changes, to her diet, physical activity, and stress management. She became vegan, meditated every day to bring balance to her life.

She was planning to go for IVF treatment by January 2021. Thankfully her lifestyle change and surgery worked, she got pregnant naturally. [1]

Childbirth

Because of fibroid myomectomy surgery, there were tiny incisions on the uterus which could open up if she waited for natural birth. C-section was planned at 37 weeks. There were complications at the time of birth. 

The baby lungs were underdeveloped, and since he didn't passed through birth canal, the fluids in the lungs weren't squeezed out, and he had breathing problems because of that. The baby was kept in NICU for 10 days. She gained water weight post surgery from stress. But thankfully everything turned out well  at the end. The bay and the mother both got healthy.
