A Night in the Life of a Heart Mom
It’s safe to say I was experiencing some PTSD impending the arrival of my first wireless newborn. My older child was born with a Congenital Heart Defect. Ava (now 2) was in the hospital for her first four months of life, and had in-home-nursing care for 19 months following that. She has overcome almost all of her medical complexities, but she still sleeps on a hospital grade pulse-ox. I found [and still find] great comfort in Ava’s pulse-ox, I rest easy knowing that she is breathing comfortably while asleep.
This August, we welcomed baby #2. I tried to enjoy my healthy boy, but I found myself up most of the night making sure our little guy was breathing. After 2 weeks of this exhausting ritual, I decided that I needed the same peace of mind I have with Ava, with our little Fitz.
Since having the Owlet Monitor, I have felt such relief and finally have found rest. A safety net like this is invaluable. Even more-so to parents like me, blemished by having watched monitor numbers plummet. I am so grateful for the peace that this product offers. And the best part of all.. my wireless newborn, is still precisely that! The only cord on the Owlet, goes from the wall — to the monitor which beams a restful shade of green.
