One of the greatest joys at The Spoiled Mama is providing support and relief for new and expecting parents as they begin their journey into parenthood.
Welcoming children to the world is a life-changing experience — full of ups and downs — and we feel so blessed to share in the adventure with all of you.
Last month, we received an incredible story from one of our parents I’d like to share. For anyone experiencing hardships through pregnancy and beyond, we hope this encourages you to find the silver lining and proceed with perseverance, hope and love.
Meet Bill and Kim K. of New Jersey. Bill writes:
“This is our third child and my wife has been loyally using The Spoiled Mama products for all of her pregnancies. This one was an unexpected surprise, and, unfortunately, has not been without complications.
A new free cell DNA test showed our baby was at high risk for having the chromosomal disorder for Turner Syndrome, and my wife had an amniocentesis for confirmation. As it turns out, the amnio showed it was a milder form of Mosaic Turner’s where only some of the cells were effected.
Needless to say, this has been torturous and we have been through a lot.
The head of the original OB/GYN practice we were going to recommended termination. This was before we even had an amnio for confirmation of the situation (…) It was as if me and my wife, and especially our baby, were no longer worth his time.
We walked out of there feeling as lost and low as possible. Needless to say, we never returned to that practice and found a very nice, new doctor.
While things are looking better now and we finally feel that we are able to enjoy this miracle of childbirth and celebrate with others, including our two other little girls, this will be a very tough pregnancy, full of anxiety. But faith will see us through.
Having being comforted by The Spoiled Mama’s products and service throughout the years as we prepared for the most important, special moments of our lives, I felt it was important to share our current experience with you.
We appreciate your support of women, children and parents, and their overall health.
On sharing their story with The Spoiled Mama community:
“We would like to provide comfort, relief and hope to as many as possible. Despite the new tests and technology that seem to develop continuously, I firmly believe childbirth will always remain a unique, unpredictable, magical mystery of life.
Strong women and support, faith and love, and passion for life, are all that’s needed to endure, enjoy and persevere through one of life’s true miracles.
They happen all the time and epitomize hope, no matter what we experience — both good and bad — in our lives. It is why we are here.”
