The wonderful Carrie Daugharty-Hunter with 9 month old Ewan. Carrie had hoped for a healthy pregnancy but was very sick with nausea for the first part of it and had to take medication to help. She found that she could only keep down root beer and poutine, and ended up gaining much more weight than she intended. She started leaking her 33rd week and went into the hospital to find that her membranes had ruptured. She stayed in hospital and 3 days later her water broke fully and she started laboring. She had planned for a natural labor but had intense back labor that exacerbated an existing injury so she opted for an epidural instead. Her labor progressed and she was able to hold briefly Ewan before he was whisked away to the NICU. He was in the NICU for 12 days before discharge and did well, but Carrie had a difficult time getting him to latch. She didn't find the nurses too supportive but was able to access the help of a lactation consultant when they got home and they have a wonderful nursing relationship today.
