Asher was born at 25 weeks and 6 days at just 2 pound 6.9 ounces. When we met, he was over 2 months old, and looking oh so healthy! He was working on learning how to take bottles and was able to go home to be with his parents and big brother, Jackson, in February right after his due date.
Kerri and Nate's story wasn't easy though. Jackson was conceived by IVF (in vitro fertilization) after a few years of infertility treatments and several rounds of IVF. Asher was conceived using a frozen embryo - Isn't that amazing!? Our medical advances are absolutely astonishing sometimes!
All went well during Asher's time inside the womb, until Kerri was diagnosed with preeclampsia. It eventually progressed and became so severe that Asher had to be delivered via emergency c-section. He was born on November 4th and experienced a few hiccups along the way that complicated his stay in the NICU. Today is he is looking stronger and stronger!
