The beautiful and empowering Jamie Pauhl with her daughter Sophia Grace (stillborn December 5, 2013). Jamie is currently 19 weeks 1 day pregnant with her second daughter. Her first pregnancy was very healthy. She was seeing midwives and planning for a waterbirth at home. There was some concern that Sophia was a bit small so Jamie had many ultrasounds to check her size, but she was always doing well. Jamie reached her due date and was told to let nature take it course as she continued her pregnancy post dates. The following week she went in for her routine midwife check and they could not find a heart beat. She went to the hospital for an emergency ultrasound and it was determined that Sophia had passed away. Jamie chose to be induced but it took a lot of time and a lot of drugs to get things moving. Jamie says that her heart wasn't ready to let her go and her body wasn't either but birthing her into this world, through her body was the most amazing feeling she has ever experienced. After over 24 hours of labor Jamie got to hold her daughter earth side. She then went on to deal with the things that no mother should have to face. About 7 weeks after her loss she conceived her second daughter and while it took her sometime to embrace this pregnancy things are going very well.
