Doctors Said Her Baby Wouldn’t Survive At 22 Weeks, But This Mom Kept The Faith
When expectant mom Louise Adams’ water broke at 22 weeks, she and her husband Jakk weren’t sure about what they were up against.
Doctors said their baby would have very little chance at survival – five percent to be exact.
Because this happened before the 24 week mark, they were told there wasn’t much that could be done to save their son and that a miscarriage would be inevitable.
But Louise and Jakk refused to give up. During the time she was hospitalized and being monitored, she could still feel her son kicking and moving about.
The couple chose instead to keep their faith that their unborn son Joseph would survive.
They began to research different ways people had helped their baby survive the insurmountable odds that Joseph was facing.
They read that drinking more than seven pints of water a day would help babies survive preterm labor.
The idea behind the extra water is that it helps replenish amniotic fluid to help the baby thrive in the womb all while flushing out toxins.
After 13 weeks, everything she had done to save her baby paid off and her son was born healthy at five pounds, 10 ounces.
Thankfully this mom fought for her son and he, in turn, became a fighter too!
