"It still hurts. Every last one of your babies matter," she says. Brittany miscarried at 5 weeks during her first pregnancy, at 7 weeks during her second, and during her third pregnancy, an ultrasound discovered she was having twins, but tragically they did not have heartbeats.
"I felt like I didn't work... I wanted to die," she says looking back, revealing she still feels a sense of shame and embarrassment.
Brittany had resolved that she would not become a mom after enduring that much pain and 4 years went by, but she got pregnant again. She was thrilled, but also fearful knowing what could happen. She says she had trouble enjoying her pregnancy and was afraid of every trip to the bathroom or cramp or pain she experienced and the mom-to-be feared the worst.
She joins Dr. Ian Smith and is overjoyed to share she welcomed a son at 30 weeks. She says the early delivery was scary but adds, "He is doing amazing" and she says her newborn is developing. "I am over the moon," she adds.
