The lovely Laura Murray with Mia (4) and Poppy (2). Laura's first pregnancy was quite easy in the beginning. So much so, she didn't believe she was pregnant even after seeing the scans. Things went really well until her first trimester screen when she learned her daughter was at high risk for having Down Syndrome. She struggled with what to do, and they ended up having an amniocentesis. The testing was done on Christmas Eve, so they had a couple of stressful weeks before they discovered she was okay. The next few weeks went well until Laura was diagnosed with high blood pressure and preeclampsia. She ended up delivering via emergency cesarean at 36 weeks. During her second pregnancy, she also had high blood pressure and preeclampsia and ended up hospitalized from 34 weeks and delivered via cesarean again. When her daughter was about 2 weeks old, she stopped breathing in her sleep. Laura was alerted to it by an Angel Care monitor which she originally thought was malfunctioning but as she watched, her daughter she stopped breathing again. She was rushed to the hospital via ambulance and had to endure lots of painful testing and spend 2 weeks in NICU. It was determined she had apnea due to parainfluenza 3. She credits the device for saving her daughter's life. Laura says the most difficult part of motherhood for her has been balancing the guilt of balancing work, motherhood, being a wife, part of the universe but she feels she's slowly getting the hang of it.
