In today’s episode, Darcy welcomes Kasey Mathews who gave birth to a baby girl at only 25 weeks in 2010 to the show. Kasey is also a book writing coach, transformational life coach, and author. In her book “Preemie: Lessons in Love, Life and Motherhood” Kasey talks candidly about how her seemingly perfect life was disrupted when she went into labor four months early, delivering her one-pound, eleven-ounce daughter, Andie. In this riveting, honest, and often humorous memoir, Preemie chronicles the journey of one tiny baby’s tenacious struggle to hold on to life and the mother who ultimately grew with her.
In this episode you’ll hear Darcy and Kasey discuss the journey of having a premature baby, how Kasey navigated the stress of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit during Andie’s time there, and how we can all settle into the love to overcome fear.
Key Takeaway: The stress that comes along with having a preemie is intense and long-lasting. This stress can often translate into delayed bonding with our preemie infants. Fear sometimes distracts us from the infinite love and power we have inside ourselves. Once we understand our fear and recognize it comes from a place of love and security, we can surrender and release.
