Give Love Recipient (October)

We are honored to recognize Ashley as our first #LWJgivelove recipient. Not long after losing her younger sister in a car accident, Ashley became pregnant with her second daughter. At 36 weeks, Ashley and her husband were out to celebrate their third anniversary. When they got home from their dinner date, Ashley realized she couldn't feel her usually active baby. As she had an uncomplicated pregnancy up to that point, they decided to monitor it throughout the night and see the doctor in the morning. That next morning, they were told it was likely nothing to worry about, but after arriving at the hospital, the nurse was having trouble finding a heartbeat and called in the doctor. Their fears were confirmed when they were told there was no heartbeat and Ashley was taken in for a C-section. Ashley is the proud mother of 2.5-year old Oaklee, and sweet angel Tenley Denise.

October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Comment below if you or someone you love has lost a baby. Let's stand together in Love and Hope.
