It is very sad and frustrating for the pediatrician together with the medical staff to see when a mother after giving birth or a cesarean section goes home without her baby, due to some complication of childbirth or because she was still weeks away from reaching maturity, the The newborn has to stay hospitalized to continue with medical management.
I can’t imagine the pain and sadness of that mommy and her family when they get home with empty arms, that’s why this time I write this note thinking of you mom. I want to tell you that you are very brave and that your son or daughter is being a warrior to be able to be home soon.
The medical and nursing staff who are in charge of your little one do everything possible so that the desired miracle occurs soon. What if you trust in God ask with your pediatrician so that the goal is achieved soon.
To you mommy of a hospitalized patient, remember that you should eat properly, sleep as much as you can and rest because soon your little one will be home and will need you with all the strength in the world. You must stimulate your lactation, so that it is not lost and you can breastfeed as soon as the doctor tells you that it is possible.
Store your milk labeled with the date and time of expression in the freezer, or take it to the hospital so they can save it for the right time. Soon it will be like a nightmare and the house will be filled with laughter, joy and blessings.
For you mommy / daddy who are going through a difficult time, you must trust with all your might that the baby will soon be with you and above all remember that God never leaves you alone at all times.
When the storm passes, you should go to your pediatrician to guide you in the subsequent control of said disease, to rule out any sequel, no matter how minimal.
Remember that you will have to take him to rehabilitation because he was in a small incubator for a long time, you will have to take him to some subspecialists depending on the disease that caused the little one to stay in the hospital.
Remember mom that you are not alone and soon you will enjoy your little one.
