Repeated or recurrent miscarriage is an issue that concerns us particularly because unfortunately is quite common, and causes intense anxiety to couples. A post specifically on this subject will follow later, but today I want to share with you the story of a woman who went through this problem, and fortunately managed to overcome it…
“I’m 30 years old and I just gave birth to my second child, but in order to arrive here we went through a long and hard road.
When we decided with my husband to take a step further with the birth of a child, we encountered some difficulties we did not expect. Our first attempt began with a loss, as the pregnancy suddenly stopped between 6 and 7 weeks of pregnancy. My gynecologist told me that many women start with a missed abortion and that I should not get discouraged. So, we retried but unfortunately our second attempt had the same inglorious end, between 6 and 7 weeks the gestation stopped.
..with faith and confidence in the medical team, we brought into the world our first child…
After this experience, my gynecologist proposed that, before we would try again, it would be a good idea to see more in detail if there was anything that could explain these losses, if something was wrong with us. For that reason, we did a series of tests for thrombophilia, antipaternal antibodies, autoimmune diseases, hormonal determinations, and a karyotype of the couple, which may hinder the smooth progress of pregnancy; and with these results on hand we went to consult a hematologist.
The hematologist, in collaboration with my gynecologist, told me that I as soon as I would become pregnant, I would need to follow a special therapy that would help me, and would increase the chances of having a healthy baby.
So when I got pregnant again, with the special treatment, with faith and confidence in the medical team, we brought into the world our first child. With continuous monitoring and support by my gynecologist, but also by the haematologist, I gave birth, with natural delivery, to a healthy baby boy.
No matter what problem you are facing, don’t give up, get informed, learn what you can do, ask help from people who can help you, don’t you stay in the dark and things might work out well for you too.
In the same way I just managed to deliver a beautiful baby girl.
When I decided to discuss the problem with some couples we knew, I found out that exactly the same problem faced two out of four close friends. That scared me, but in the end everything went well for all of us.
No matter what problem you are facing, don’t give up, get informed, learn what you can do, ask help from people who can help you, don’t you stay in the dark and things might work out well for you too. “
