Heidi’s friend entered her into our giveaway, and we were so moved by her story and everything this family has been through in the last year that we immediately felt a connection with her family and her story. Heidi and her family were pregnant last year and at their 20 week appointment found out that she had Congenital diaphragmatic hernia, which is a congenital malformation (birth defect) of the diaphragm. They were sent to Denver and Heidi was doing her prenatal care there. When she went into labor, the baby came so quickly that her husband wasn’t able to be there for the birth. Their daughter, Kambry, ended up passing away at about one month old. My heart aches for them so much, and I cannot possibly fathom the loss of a child. We wanted to do as much as we could as the Fargo Birth team to make this pregnancy, labor, and delivery of this baby as easy as possible on them. There was so much emotion throughout her pregnancy, obviously worrying again at the health of this baby. But there were nothing that came up in her appointments to make the doctors worry, and baby girl was born healthy! Thank you Heidi and Lon for allowing us to be a part of such an important time in your lives. We were truly grateful to be a part of it. Her video will be coming soon, but here are her images that tell the birth story of baby Afton! Welcome to the world little one!
