The amazing Amanda Sharpe and her youngest son Rowen (2.5 years). Amanda is also mama to Hayden (18.5 years). She has had Type 1 Diabetes since she was 9 years old and most recently, has had a significant decline in health due to her diabetes and fibromyalgia. She had healthy pregnancies with both of her boys considering her condition and they were both delivered via cesarean at 37 weeks. She's enjoyed her breastfeeding relationships with both of her boys and is still nursing Rowen today. Amanda chose to participate in the project to celebrate herself. So wonderful!
Type 1 Diabetes
The beautiful Kristin Wilson with her boys Wyatt (6) and Waylon (3 months). Kristin has Type 1 Diabetes and greatly got her health under control through the use of an insulin pump about a year before Wyatt was born. Kristin had a lot of doctor visits with her first pregnancy just to check in on everything and make sure her health was okay. Kristin found out a week before Wyatt was born that he needed to be delivered via cesarean and she found it scary. With Waylon she was able to schedule her cesarean and use a birth plan. She had a wonderful second experience.
