Keira Rumble had six unsuccessful pregnancies, but she did not give up and managed to give birth to a healthy baby boy and become “the happiest mom in the world,” as she describes herself.
Specifically, within three years, she tried six times to have a child, with the last attempt being the most ᴘᴀɪɴꜰᴜʟ of all, as she suffered for days in excruciating ᴘᴀɪɴ.
The ᴘᴀɪɴs were so severe that she was confined to bed for days, and when she finally visited her doctor, they found out that it was ᴇɴᴅᴏᴍᴇᴛʀɪᴏsɪs, and she underwent sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ.
After a year, however, despite being disappointed, she had I.V.F, which was successful, and on July 5, she gave birth to her baby, Hunter Philip Harris, who was born prematurely at 36 weeks.
As she emphasized, “now I feel very connected to him, even though when he was born I only held him for 30 seconds. He then went straight to the intensive care unit and was given 100% oxygen to survive. When I first took him in my arms, he was bruised and struggling to breathe.”
And she adds, “Even though I loved him, I didn’t feel a special connection with him from the beginning, as I expected. Not being able to hold him and nurse him made it even harder.”
However, the happiest mom in the world says she chose to share her journey to motherhood in order to give courage and a message of hope to all women who are trying to have a child.
With October 15 being Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, Rumble wants to give hope to women still trying for their families and let them know they are not alone.
“For two and a half years, I experienced loss after six failed pregnancies . Today, however, I am finally holding my baby in my arms,” she concluded.
