I always had the dream of being a mother… and today, I LOVE being a mother! When this dream comes true, we may not be fully prepared, but it is a wonderful experience from the beginning, despite the problems we face even while we are pregnant… I think that life should take a little lighter with us when we are pregnant, because it is a moment too special, which at the same time makes us lionesses when it comes to defending child and fragility in person when something refers to ourselves! Feeling a baby in the belly and knowing that it depends on us to survive, awakens in us an inexplicable, totally unconditional love. It is truly a blessing from God … There is no comparable love.
Not to mention that pregnancy makes us more beautiful !!! No matter what we are going through, having the child in the belly or on our side already gives us the strength to face everything and teach him to face, with dignity, each battle to be fought in this life, which is not easy. 17 years ago God gave me a divine gift, which came to teach me to love and teach me a lesson in love and companionship, my first child… After a while, my companion, already 4 and a half years old, told me one day that I was pregnant and I doubted … A few days later, I found out that he knew me better than I did, when an exam confirmed what he had said. Very early in pregnancy, when I asked him if he wanted a little brother or little sister, he said it could be both inside my belly, a blonde girl and a brown boy.
I still teased him saying it couldn’t be, because I couldn’t breastfeed two babies. Breastfeeding is paramount for me. Living in the countryside, only with 5 months of pregnancy I did the first ultrasound and the doctor told us that I was pregnant with twins! I collapsed… due to the enormous emotion of a double pregnancy and also remembering what my son had already said!
My pregnancy was smooth and with nine months, two babies were born, huge and healthy, a little blonde girl and a little brown boy, as he had described! My companion wanted to attend the birth, if he could, he would have gone. He went to see the babies that were already in my room, as they didn’t need an incubator. He watched the little brothers, caressed, then he came to me and hugged me as if he never wanted to let me go again … It seemed that in 1 day, he had grown up and was not with his 5, but with 10 years. I can’t remember this scene without getting emotional … I need not even try to describe the emotion I felt with the birth of the babies … A beautiful little blonde and brunette who were breastfed until almost 1 year old.
I didn’t breastfeed any longer because of a health problem of mine. My beautiful little girls have grown up strong and healthy and are growing companions too. They just came to add and teach us more and more to share everything in family and add our love, qualities and defects to grow and evolve all together. My eldest companion always stayed by my side, giving me enormous strength helping me to take care of my little brothers and being a very affectionate son, present in good times and bad. Today, he is studying abroad … Out of sight, but close, within the heart … The children grow up, we will enjoy and appreciate every moment beside them, because time passes and never comes back.
As fathers and mothers, we are also not perfect, but we try to get it right every day, doing the best we can for our little gifts that God kindly gave us to take care of and show us what it is to truly love. Good luck to us on this not easy, but fully enriching journey, which allows us to know, seek and awaken the best in us and in our beloved companions on the journey!

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
