Dad Matt shares the birth story of his son Owen David at 26 weeks and his subsequent death a few hours after he was born. His wife Lori Ann had a cerclage put in earlier, but her water broke at 21 weeks. Lori Ann stayed on bed rest till 24 weeks and was admitted to the hospital so they could do everything medically possible to keep Owen alive.
She developed an infection and Owen was delivered by emergency C-section at 26 weeks. Owen was unable to breath on his own, and Matt and Lori Ann were able to be with him and hold him before he died.
