Ponekad se tijekom poroda otkriju neobične i rijetke stvari, tako je jedna mama objavila fotografiju pupčane vrpce s čvorom što još više naglašava koliko je rođenje djeteta čudesan događaj
Porođaj je nevjerojatno iskustvo. Sve što ima veze s dolaskom bebe na svijet je čudesno i neobično u isto vrijeme. Međutim, ponekad se dogode neuobičajene stvari, a uz današnju tehnologiju moguće ih je dokumentirati.
Nakon teškog poroda 28-godišnja Rebecca Meldrum rodila je djevojčicu Poppy. Rođena četiri tjedna ranije, a težila je 2.26 kilograma. Liječnici su se brinuli za bebu, a ponosna mama je objavila fotografiju s nečim jako rijetkim i neobičnim. Ispostavilo se da Poppyjina pupčana vrpca imala pravi čvor - nešto što se dogodi jedanput na dvije tisuće poroda.
Iako je ova prije priča jako rijetka, nažalost može biti opasna. Pupčana vrpca opskrbljuje bebu nutrijentima i kisikom. Čvor na pupkovini može zaustaviti taj osjetljivi sustav te tako može izazvati oštećenja mozga kod bebe ili smrt.
Na sreću, ništa od toga nije se dogodilo kod malene Poppy. Njezina mama je vrlo emotivno prošla kroz to razdoblje: "Mogu iskreno reći da nikad nisam osjećala toliko emocija kao proteklih nekoliko dana i vjerujem da će se to nastaviti sve dok ne dođemo kući zajedno", napisala je Rebecca uz fotografiju na Instagramu koju je objavila jedan dan nakon carskog reza.
My favourite time of the day. Evening snuggles with Poppy, the most perfect few hours. I changed my first nappy & I fed her her milk through her tube, the feisty one pulled out her own cannula so is no longer having fluid through a drip just milk 🍼 she also now has an adorable little @octopusforapreemie.uk which the NICU girls say she loves! This mummy is tireddddd & ready for a blissful nights sleep! Goodnight all 💕
If you're squeamish or eating your breakfast then look away now! This knot was in Poppy's cord, a True Knot which apparently is pretty uncommon 1 in 2,000 babies I think the midwife said. Just another thing to add to her story, it's going to be one heck of a pregnancy, labour & birth book! So so many of you have been through the neonatal thing & I am blown away by just how many people have poorly/early babies. Before I had Poppy I'd known friends who had babies go into NICU & always thought it sounded hard but you know, they're in the best place so it's fine... I can honestly say I have never ever been through emotions like I have been through these last few days & I'm sure will continue to go through until we are all home together. I've cried in a way I've never heard myself cry before, loud, ugly & almost primal need for my baby to be with me, I've stared into space for hours upon end wishing I was pregnant still, I've gone through every hospital appointment, scan & meeting from the last 6 months trying to work out how this could have ended up differently & I have sobbed to countless midwives about not knowing how I'm feeling, the guilt, the fear, the unexplainable emotions. I don't think anything could ever prepare you for not being with your baby after labour & delivery, but today I feel like I've turned a corner. I'm sure it's the tonic of skin to skin with Poppy but I'm feeling more confident, more ready to face NICU & want to get involved in anyway I can with caring for my baby. Thank you again to all of you that have messaged me. There are so so many stories to go through but the things that really help the most are those tips on what to do when I can't be holding her, different ways to interact and have contact with her, the types of touch Preemies like & the types of questions to ask in neonatal. Thank you all so so much!
