Magical Milk Pic-o-the-Week



"She is 22 years old--this is her second baby. Her pregnancy was complicated by severe pre-eclampsia. Beth and Jonna (midwives) have been seeing her every day for almost the past 3 weeks. She's been slowly getting worse, to the point where we needed to induce her today, even though the baby was still premature. By dates the baby was 35 1/2 weeks gestation, though after birth we're estimating the baby is more like 36-37 weeks. It was a complicated birth requiring lots of interventions but thankfully both mom and baby are doing well. Dad is very involved and compassionate with both mom and baby. Breastfeeding is going well so far!" - Jen Halverson, February 2010
