My name is Michelle. I had my first experience with Akron Children's Hospital in April 2012.
On April 13, 2012, I had a gorgeous little girl named Nicolette, 6 weeks early. She was born with a couple of medical problems, so they called in the lovely people from Akron Children's Hospital Boardman location. They moved her from Warren to Boardman that day.
While I was resting and beginning my healing process from the c-section, I knew my baby girl would be in good hands.
The video below is about the journey I endured through my pregnancy and after her birth. My daughter was born with total anomalous pulmonary venous return and her esophagus was not attached.
At 21 years old I was not ready to make the decisions I had to make, but I did anyway with the help of my family and the doctors at Akron Children's Hospital.
