A Night in the Life of a Heart Mom

October 28, 2016

I’m @kailabiagini – most notoriously “Ava’s mom”. I have so loved getting to team up with Owlet on their “Night in the Life” series.

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.

The Smart Sock is the first baby monitor to track your baby’s oxygen level and heart rate—good indicators of Baby's overall well-being—while they sleep. If your baby’s readings leave preset zones, you'll receive a notification that lets you know your baby really needs you. Now you can feel more confidence, more freedom, and more peace of mind knowing that Owlet is here to help.

Our all-new Smart Sock is the third of its kind and it's smarter than ever.

Our little boy (due in 14wks) had been diagnosed with Supraventricular Tachycardia (fast heartbeat – around 225bpm)and the Owlet was one of the purchases we made for him. Fortunately the excellent staff at UCSF Fetal Treatment have prescribed transplacental treatment and he’s doing a lot better now. When he’s out of my belly and possibly without treatment, we’re comforted to know the Owlet can let us know what his heartbeat is doing.
