Lucy was 28 weeks pregnant and she started feeling reduced movements. After looking at her MAMA Wellbeing Wallet she decided to attend the birth centre to get checked out. She was monitored and it was discovered that the baby was compromised. The decision was made to deliver baby Devin at 28 weeks. Lucy was due to have a diabetes test the day after Devin was delivered and part of her had been thinking “oh just wait to see the midwife on that day and they will listen to the heart beat then”. However, because the wallet stressed that she should call IMMEDIATELY, Lucy felt confident enough to call straight away and get checked out.
After 8 weeks in the Neonatal Unit, baby Devin was able to go home.
We are absolutely thrilled to hear that our Wellbeing Wallets made a difference. Thank you so much Lucy for sharing your story and your beautiful little boy with us.
Lucy is eager to spread the message to pregnant ladies that there is no concern that should be put off in pregnancy. You should always trust your instincts. If in doubt, always get checked out.
