A journey of hope and healing after a decade of infertility and two maternal near-misses.

We each have a role to play in making motherhood safe.  I will keep sharing our story as long as we have opportunity so other women know the risks and symptoms of perinatal complications and can be survivors too.

As we approach the holiday season, we begin to reflect on the past year, and gratitude is something in particular that many of us ponder, despite the various challenges we face. Recovery from or loss because of a blood clot can be extremely difficult – and sometimes it can be just as difficult to find something to be thankful for – yet, by reflecting on gratitude, we are sometimes reminded that there are positive and powerful things to be thankful for in our lives. In an effort to illuminate these positive messages for others to see, NBCA reached out to the members of its Inspire Online Discussion Community, as well as its social media channels, to find out what our community is most thankful for. Find out what you had to say.
What are you thankful for? 
  • I’m thankful to be a two time maternal near miss survivor (PE/ PPH) and able to watch my son grow up! I’m also thankful for opportunities to share my story so I can encourage others in the midst of their own battles. My hope is that as more of us come forward, we can affect policy and protocols so other women do not go through the same near death experiences related to childbirth. – Casey
