- Baby Saves
“I noticed less fetal movement in my baby throughout the day. When it was time to count her kicks, I was only able to get four in an hour and had been getting 10 within 15 minutes normally. I called the nurse hotline right away. They suggested I come in to get checked out.
We went straight to the hospital and they hooked me up. Her heart rate had started out strong but within minutes dropped to a low alarming rate for a prolonged period of time. They decided to do an emergency C-section and Lily was born at 35 weeks and 6 days, and spent a few days in the NICU.
The doctors weren’t sure what caused the decrease in her heart rate, but knew that she was showing us she was in distress. I am thankful I was paying attention to my kicks and went to get checked out right away. It helped save our baby girl’s life!” -Alexa R., Lily Lou’s mom
