Childbirth Part 2

Index

My heart sank because I couldn’t see what was happening to my daughter. Since the room they took her to was far away and so I couldn’t see anything that was happening, I just heard her weak cry very far away… Anyway, the neonatal pediatrician came to ask me some questions and soon after my daughter came with the nurse. She was so small, so dark with very black hair and wide eyes looking at everything around her! As I cried with emotion and joy, but a few minutes later they had to take my baby. She was not well, she was born tired and panting and I noticed a look of concern in the doctor who wanted to take her to the nursery as soon as possible.

Joana with 9 days of life still in the maternity ward

I went to the postoperative period and stayed there a long time until they released my room, but I think they gave me some tranquilizers due to the news that would come later, because honestly I don’t remember almost anything from that moment. I went to the room and there during visiting hours my mother came in with eyes full of tears and hugging me said softly in my ear: Our Joana is a beautiful daughter! But she is not well, she has oxygen and in the incubator.

My world fell! I didn’t know what to think and I desperately asked my husband to tell the truth, if she was okay. Then he told me that she had contracted an infection inside my uterus, which we later learned was due to the bag that had broken just before time, that broken bag . I will write more about it, but at the time it was difficult to face! My daughter had a bacterial infection in her lungs. I couldn’t see you that day. The next day, I got up with the help of the nurse, showered and went to meet my daughter in the pre-natal ICU.

It Was Very Difficult To See My Baby In The ICU

When I got there, I felt really bad , a faint feeling came over me. I saw my daughter so tiny, completely helpless, full of electrodes and in her little hand an access to the serum. A scene I will never forget … Anyway, the doctors who were taking care of her came and told me that the weight she was born was very good (2,930 kg) and that she was strong. But his health was still delicate. I couldn’t breastfeed right at the beginning, I felt bad for that and for seeing my daughter in that state.

The next day I was even more apprehensive, they took her to the ICU and there she shaved her hair on the left side, she who was so hairy, had a very evident flaw. But even so, I knew it was for your good. The days I spent always by your side. On the day of my discharge I just thought that leaving the maternity ward without my daughter would be too painful! I don’t know until now how I managed to get through this … It was a very big void!
