PPROM Survivor: Sebastian

@ Valour Foundation

"I ruptured at 18wks and 5 days with a complete loss of fluid. The high risk doctor suggested me terminate my pregnancy as I was to far from my baby to be viable. I refused and was sent home with one week of antibiotics and according to the doctor I was expected to go into labor within 72hrs based on his experience as he went on how 75% of women that had this happened will go in labor. For the following month I changed doctors and was seeing another MFM doctor weekly and my amniotic was fluctuating between 2-4cm until i reached 22.5wks and was admitted to the hospital. I received another round of antibiotics and a round of steroids. I stayed between 4-5cm until I reached 31 that I went up to 9cm. I delivered by emergency c section at 33.2wks as I was starting to get dilated and having contractions every 1 min. My son Sebastian was born on May 1st was intubated for only 24 hrs and on cpap 48hrs and since then he has been breathing on his own and stable. Update: we went home on June 1st and he is doing great! 😂🙏🙌"- Yle Antanas
