Have you heard of the term Oligohydramnios?
Low amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios) is a condition in which the amniotic fluid measures lower than expected for a baby's gestational age.
Today’s guest was preparing to conceive and had a myomectomy to remove her fibroids. Christina Danyo learned she was expecting after her fibroid surgery. During her 20 week anatomy scan she learned that her baby girl’s kidneys did not develop and was covered in cysts. Her daughter was diagnosed with Oligohdramnios or low/no amniotic fluid and her lungs also did not develop. Christina was faced with the decision with the diagnosis not compatible with life.
In this episode, we discuss the decision she and her husband made to carry to full term, she delivered her baby girl via C-section at 37 weeks, preparation for delivering a baby given a fatal diagnosis, and her time spent honoring her angel during her less than 2 hour life and beyond.
