For Prematurity Awareness Month, we’re sharing Sharon’s story…
This is the story of our son Daniel Joseph Goodwin IV born on May 29th, 2017.
We had been trying to get pregnant for five years but after going to doctors, I was diagnosed with PCOS, a condition which made it hard to get pregnant. We tried many years thereafter with no success.
On the morning of May 29th, I had abdominal pains and so my husband rushed me to the hospital. The ride there was very scary because we had no idea what was going on with me. I thought my ovaries had ruptured because this could occur with the condition I had. My husband was there with me in the ER and once the nurses took me to see the ultrasound tech; he went to charge his phone to call his family about what was going on with me.
