Mariah Rain Choudhary

These funds will help cover medical and burial expenses incurred with the loss of our newborn child, Mariah Rain Choudhary, who died after suffering neurologic brain failure due to a uterine rupture during delivery. 
  
On Saturday morning at 3:30AM – with Katrina at just under 38 weeks pregnant – her water broke and we went to the hospital, William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak. The labor was slow but normal and Katrina appeared ready to go into active labor early Sunday afternoon.

Shortly before the doctor did the final evaluation of Katrina’s dilation, the heart monitor failed to show the baby’s heartbeat. Within minutes, the Katrina was taken into the operating room for an emergency C-section and uterine rupture with Mariah’s heartbeat being 50-60.

Upon entering the OR, I sat at the head of the operating table with Katrina and caught a glimpse of the doctor’s working on Mariah. They had just delivered her, but she was not breathing and appeared blue. The doctors were able to provide oxygen to Mariah and assist with breathing, however it did not look good. As the doctors diagnosed Katrina, they observed a 270 degree linear tear in her uterine wall and damage to her cervix, which is especially rare since Katrina had no previous C-sections. The risk to Katrina was significant, however no blood vessels or ancillary organs were damaged. It took over four long hours in the before surgery was complete.

When Katrina left for recovery, I went up to the NICU to see Mariah and discuss her condition with the neonatologist. While the doctors were able to regulate breathing, Mariah demonstrated no voluntary motion. Shortly after she was taken up to the NICU, Mariah began suffering from seizures (involuntary rhythmic motions in her little arms). She passed away on August 16, 2017

Please pray for us as we suffer through this tragic loss.
