The sacrifices we make as mothers to bring our children into this world. This boy's mama carried him at the expense of her hip which she had replaced in hopes of more comfortably carrying a future child. The recovery didn't go as planned which left her in pain and and uncomfortable during pregnancy.
She also had a knee replacement years ago they believe having them as close together as she did caused her other hip to compensate as she healed and it caused a small tear on the opposite side. Sheesh, talk about going through all the things here!
As this pregnancy progressed, the pain did also. Pushing her hip to its limits and leaving her using a walker to get around right after giving birth.
Our bodies go through so much to bring a baby into this world and gosh, I'm grateful they are worth it! Isn't he darling?
