The beautiful Beth Rosser and her son Angus (7 months). Beth had a very healthy pregnancy for the most part. She was hospitalized for a week for what they thought was appendicitis, but the pain subsided, and she was released without issue. Her birth had started off well and had planned to deliver in a birth center. She prelabored at home for about 12 hours then went in, soon after, she went from 2cm to 8 cms very quickly, but things didn't progress beyond that. She was eventually transferred to a birthing ward so she could be more closely monitored and it was then that they noticed that Angus was in distress. Meconium was also present when they broke her waters, adding more concern. At that point, they decided to deliver via emergency cesarean. Things went well, and Angus was put right to Beth's chest in recovery and had his first breastfeed. However, in the elevator on the way back up to the ward, Angus stopped breathing in the elevator. They grabbed him to take him, but he started breathing on his own. Beth and Angus were then able to remain together to establish breastfeeding for the remainder of the day. Eventually, Angus needed to be taken to NICU to get some antibiotics for the meconium exposure and in the elevator, this time; he began to have a seizure. They kept him in the NICU, and he had three more seizures over the next couple days. He was put on medication and had an MRI to determine what was going on. It was then discovered that Angus had suffered a neonatal stroke. After a few days of monitoring, they were able to go home. Beth was very scared the first few weeks home about his future and simply from dealing with the stresses of settling into life as a new, first-time parent. Thankfully, follow-up monitoring has shown no lasting effect from the stroke. Beth was able to breathe and start to really enjoy being a mom once she received that news. She's worked through a delay of her milk coming in, oversupply and overactive let down but has greatly enjoyed breastfeeding and is still going strong. Beth says she once blamed her body for causing Angus's stroke but is now proud of her body for being able to take care of herself and her son.
