Still A Part of Us: A podcast about pregnancy loss, stillbirth, and infant loss

Oct 19, 2021

Dad Mark describes his wife Corchele's pregnancy with their daughter Breklyn. When her water broke, they headed to the hospital, and while there, Breklyn was under distress and Corchele had to undergo an emergency C-section (where Corchele was completely sedated due to the epidural/nerve block not working originally) in order to deliver Breklyn. The doctor stated that Breklyn wasn't going to make it, but she was put on life support. 

When Corchele was finally able to see Breklyn, Mark and Corchele made the heartbreaking decision to remove Breklyn from life support. After she dies, they get time with her in the hospital. Mark talks about the funeral and what the cause of Breklyn's death: an infection called chorioamnionitis.
