Hello my name is Bridget ☺️ I am a proud preemie mother and a mother to a handsome angel. I had my son at 26 weeks weighing 1lb 11oz. And my daughter at 27 weeks weighing 1lb 5.8oz. My son is now our guardian angel And my daughter is now 1 and a lil monster ☺️ With both pregnancies I got very dealthy sick that's why I had to deliver so early. I got severe HELLP syndrome. My blood pressure was dangerously high to were I could seize at any moment. And my liver and kidneys were failing. I now cannot have anymore babies because of how sick I get. The doctors told me absolutely no more also because the second time was harder to stop my organs from failing. I am on the committee for my area for the march of dimes or march for babies. Iv participated in this for a couple years now since my son was born. I am married and also have two other two sons and two dogs. ☺️

  • Hello and welcome to Share. I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I lost my first baby to Trisomy 18, 10 years ago this year. Thank you so much for being a part of March for Babies and all the work that you do! I hope that your walk day goes well.
    Love and Hugs
