The amazing Amanda Atkins with her youngest son, Silas (2). Amanda's eldest son Asher (5) was born after a pretty typical early pregnancy. Around 31 weeks Amanda developed polyhydramnios and knew that something was wrong. She ended up being induced and after a 48 hour labor had to have a cesarean. Asher had difficulty breathing when he was born as well as low muscle tone. He spent a month in the NICU and was finally diagnosed with Prader–Willi syndrome at 7 weeks. Asher was tube fed for his first 2 years and while Amanda wasn't able to nurse she was able to pump and provide milk to him for 14 months. When Asher was about 3, Amanda got pregnant again. She had a very typical pregnancy this time and was able to have a VBAC. Silas is still happily nursing today.
