The beautiful Brianne Smith and her son Holden Michael James (2). Brianne and her husband decided to try to get pregnant the first night of their honeymoon and they were successful! That part was easy but her pregnancy was difficult. She was sick a lot and found her job as a teacher quite taxing. She went into labor but didn't realize that was what was happening at first as it was all back pain. After 15 hours of labor and contractions, Holden never descended, nor did Brianne dilated and she ended up having to have an emergency cesarean. Brianne's birth was not quite what she had imagined and while Holden has had a lot of heath issues the pair are doing wonderfully now. He was born severely tongue tied and Brianne wasn't able to produce enough milk while pumping but was able to supplement with breastmilk from her sister in law until she found a formula that agreed with him. Holden has also struggled with severe reflux and issues with his adenoids and hearing but is currently very healthy. Brianne teaches middle school and commented on how much easier it is for the girls she sees to criticize one another rather to say something positive. She chose to participate as a step in changing that for herself.
