New Moms – This Is For You
The journey to becoming new moms are often shared with treasured memory. As new moms, be encouraged. You are not alone.
My Birth Experience
Who would have thought that after much prayers, 4 years into our marriage, David Joshua Jun Jie Dick would be born on the morning of 29th August 2012? Earlier, we got excited David’s projected due date fell on his Aunt Joanne’s birthday which was 28th of August that year. That afternoon, I experienced some contractions and later in the evening I was Admitted into Clovis Community Hospital. While I admitted, my water broke. My contractions intensified from that point on. It was a relief to have Dan, Michelle, Andrea and my little sister, Elisa there. It was heart warming to have them cheering me on. The pain-killer had an intense effect on my body. Not only did the pain continue on, I was hallucinating. I couldn’t wait for a staff to administer epidural to relieve my pain. It took a while longer to finally get my pain relieved. I was so glad. The process of dilation did not progress as expected, and David was in distressed. So, through c-section David was born early the next morning at around 9. He weighed 9 pounds 1 oz, and 21 inches long.
As a brand new mom, I did my research on the web daily. I was constantly looking for answers online especially through the first year of David’s life. Never miss his doctor’s appointments. It helped to have a group of new moms as a support group for each other. I was a proud new mom who by God’s provision, successfully breastfed my little boy through the six months of his life. Giving thanks to God always for His guidance, wisdom and protection.
