PPROM Survivor: Alyce Ray

@ Valour Foundation

"This was my third pregnancy, first PPROM. I was home in bed, 6AM when my water broke. I drove myself to the nearest hospital, was admitted there, tested positive for amniotic fluid and then sent via ambulance 2 hours away to UVMMC in Vermont. I was given steroids, shot with magnesium. Finally labor stopped and I was admitted for hospital bed rest. A few WEEKS go by, and I started bleeding. Partial Placenta Abruption. 😞 My sweet girl was still holding on and remained alive for another few weeks. Almost 6 weeks, on bed rest before I went into full active labor. She was breech, so we knew she would be born via c-section. I got on the OR table at 10cm dilated! 4 minutes later, my sweet tiny baby was born! She was born with PPHN, anemia of prematurity and the obvious, low birth weight. (1260 grams)Advice: Stay strong. Stay positive. Drink lots of cranberry juice! (I swear, that’s what kept me from getting an infection!) ❤️ " - Kylie Monfette
