Hello everyone I was blessed to this year to have my second child but was told I was never able to have my first one. This pregnancy was a very hard one and took a huge toll on my body: mentally, emotional, and physically. As we came closer to the due date, I felt something was not right at all. I pushed for a c section for 36 weeks and did not wait. I am glad I did. On 23rd September 2020 my daughter was born. Within moments my body started shutting down and I lost over half my body’s blood supplies. I ended up being 1% of women who ended up with pre-clamp Sia plus being 1% HELPPS Disorder. This is a very rare disease. My blood pressure was so high, I lost my my eye sight, my face was so swollen, I slept all the time, and as it stands, I am no working because of this. I have medical bills are increasing because my and daughter and I have had to stay in the hospital for over a week. I am working hard to get better. It is a hard process and day to day one.
