The wonderful Erin Patel with Edith Lucia (2). Erin had a miscarriage with her first pregnancy and took some time to conceive her daughter. She was able to have a mostly uneventful pregnancy until her water broke at 34 weeks while shopping at Target. She drove herself to the hospital and watched Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (including some singing of her favorite songs) before labor really amped up. Labor progressed hard and fast and Edith was born without complication. Edith spent the following 5 weeks in the NICU but is in good health today. She's always been small but is finally on the growth charts and is catching up beautifully. Erin had hoped to breastfeed but wasn't able get a good latch down so she chose to pump exclusively for her daughter's first 6 months. Erin spoke about learning to let go of some of the comments she carried with her that others had made about her body growing up and hopes that her daughter is able to escape such experience.
