This woman’s hope and perseverance are exemplary. After 13 miscarriages in 12 years, Liu, a 32-year-old Chinese woman, has just given birth to her first child. Despite the advice of specialists who advised her to abandon her search for motherhood, the young mother did not give in. A story of hope for couples struggling to have a child.
On March 22, 2022, after an excruciating wait for 12 years, Liu gave birth by cesarean section at Wuhan University’s Zhongnan Hospital. A result that is almost a miracle. Since her marriage in 2010, Liu and her husband have been trying to conceive. In total, the couple has to deal with thirteen miscarriages, all of which took place at the beginning of the pregnancy.
In 2017, doctors diagnosed him with an autoimmune disease called lupus erythematosus. Lupus most often occurs in women of childbearing age. Pregnancy, which leads to hormonal changes, is also one of the causes that can cause the disease that had not manifested until then.
For specialists, this condition, which causes a general disturbance of the immune system, is not unrelated to the young woman’s difficulties in carrying her pregnancy to term. Faced with these numerous spontaneous terminations of pregnancy, the doctors are unanimous, reports the British newspaper Mirror: Liu has to accept that she will not be able to have a child…
In August 2021, Liu becomes pregnant again. And against all odds, this new pregnancy ended in a happy event. Despite everything, it was not easy for the future mother, because at the end of the fifth month she was afraid of losing the baby again due to bleeding and abdominal pain. But thanks to the precautions taken by the medical team, the young woman was able to give birth to a premature but healthy baby.
A story that reminds us that hope always has a place in our lives.
