The loss of an infant is something most parents can’t get over, and it particularly takes a toll on the mother. Neonatal death is the loss of a baby less than 28 days old, and it might occur for different reasons.

Prematurity is one of the major causes of neonatal death. Although medicine has advanced, it still proves difficult for doctors to save babies born before 23 or 24 weeks of pregnancy.

Other causes of neonatal loss include chromosomal problems and congenital disabilities.

Joy of motherhood

Amanda was 25 years old when she got pregnant for the first time. She had carried the child and planned and dreamed of how things would be when she finally delivered. Unfortunately, all that came to a halt when she went into labor prematurely.

The next day, the doctors informed Amanda that her baby girl didn’t make it. She was devastated and began losing weight. Amanda lost 22lbs and couldn’t regain it afterward. Luckily, that soon changed for the better.

Amanda met a man that loved her for who she was. He tended to her pain and nursed her back to her emotional wholeness. He was gentle and attentive through it all. Once again, Amanda knew what love was. She had found the man of her dreams and wanted to give motherhood another chance.

Although she was afraid, with her supportive partner, she got pregnant and was expecting. He also wanted this baby, so he took care of her. He gave Amanda her favorite food and assured her that everything was going to be okay. And everything was fine indeed!

Amanda gave her man a baby girl, and he showered them with plenty of love. Three years later, they added another number to the family, but this time it was a boy.

Amanda began experiencing the joy of motherhood and believes that the support and love of family really work wonders.
