Love for Lauren & Mikayla

On March 3, Lauren welcomed her precious daughter Mikayla Yve into the world seven weeks early. While Mikayla gets stronger during her stay in NICU, Lauren fights her own health battle as she tries to recover from severe preeclampsia and her emergency C Section. In addition, Lauren mourns the recent passing of her beloved Omi, Yvonne, who Mikaya's middle name honors. Lauren is a self-described "proud single mother by choice", but could use her village of support during this time. Her company let her go during her third trimester, and the health challenges both she and Mikayla are fighting makes her postpartum recovery that much more difficult. So many of you are kind enough to ask how you can help, and as appreciated as baby “gifts” are, Lauren could really use financial support as her health care costs continue to increase. Let's help Lauren and Mikayla blossom into the strong duo they are!
