The day your baby is born is supposed to be the best day of your life but for mom hayley park the day she had her son was bittersweet sadly the end of haley’s pregnancy came at the same time that her husband’s cancer was at its most aggressive and before she knew it she was given a choice that no one wants to make have her baby early via c-section or risk her husband never getting to meet his son Haley and her husband jb welcome their second son earthside on december 2nd as she explained in her facebook post from december 4 that has since gone viral the news of her son’s birth was most joyous but also the most somber this boy entered the world in
the most brave and magical way with a very big miracle to fulfill in a short matter of time she explained it all started on november 28th when jb was admitted to the hospital in hartford connecticut with Complications from cancer by december 1st the six-month prognosis they’d received in the past was shrunk into a matter of days with our second son’s due date three weeks away my husband and i knew asking for an induction was the right thing to do the mom recalled in her post without hesitation the team of icu doctors communicated with the head of high-risk labor and delivery doctors they offered me an induction as soon as i was ready Parker called kissing her husband goodbye as she got ready to be induced i told him to be strong and hold on
for me and the baby he said he would she remembered they started the process that night with hopes of a quick labor and a vaginal birth those plans changed in an instant when a team of icu doctors entered my room thursday morning at 8am with the news that jb was declining fast and had a Matter of a few hours she remembered it was either a c-section right at that moment or jb would not have the opportunity to meet our son the mom didn’t hesitate she told her medical team lets go and within minutes she was in the operating room just a short 20 minutes later our son was born she wrote he was given to me for a quick kiss and then a team of doctors and
nurses ran him up two floors and he was placed on his daddy’s chest The next part of park’s story was nothing short of a miracle when our baby was placed on jb’s chest jb’s vitals all instantly improved she’s cheered he was also acknowledging our son was there by making small head movements and sweet moans after park was stitched up doctors and nurses made room for my bed to be wheeled in right next to my husband’s i spent my recovery time gazing at my husband she recalled i was gazing at him In sadness but in all of his strength jb took his last breath with their son on his chest and my hand and his hand of course their journey wasn’t over yet park delivered their son three weeks early meaning a slew of complications that can require nicu time and breathing
