The father uploaded the last photo he took of his wife with their newborn daughter, thanking her for the wonderful gift she was able to leave him.
Igor Aparecido Pereira and Ana Paula Saqui de Paula, a young couple from São Paulo, Brazil, eagerly awaited the arrival of their little girl. But what should have been an occasion for celebration was tinged with ᴛʀᴀɢᴇᴅʏ when the young woman lost her life while she was giving birth.
After a whole day of very ᴘᴀɪɴꜰᴜʟ ᴄᴏɴᴛʀᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴs, Ana Paula arrived at the Sao Luiz Hospital in Boituva on April 26 with a nine-centimeter ᴅɪʟᴀᴛɪᴏɴ. However, when she arrived, it was difficult for her to have a natural birth, so the woman asked the doctors to perform a ᴄᴀᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, which they denied her.
Instead of operating her immediately, the specialists chose the forceps technique as their method. Despite how difficult it is to extract the baby with this device, the mother was able to give birth to a healthy girl. Worse, the 18-year-old girl ᴅɪᴇᴅ from ᴠᴀɢɪɴᴀʟ ʙʟᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ just minutes after holding her daughter.
On his Facebook page, the father made a post with the last photo of his wife, expressing the anguish he felt for the departure of his beloved and his gratitude for the gift she had left him.
“When will the nostalgia pass? How I wish you were here, by my side, helping me raise this star,” he said.
“I love you very much, love, and I will always love you,” he added. I promise you – and you know I’m telling the truth because you’re seeing everything from above – that I’m going to take good care of our daughter. Thank you very much for the gift you gave us. She is very cute and she has your face.”
A sad story tells us that the only thing that can get us through these tragedies is the love that a father can feel for his daughter.
We hope this dad recovers soon from his beloved loss. Let’s leave him our support and best wishes.
