If you've met the Mahler family, you have made life-long friends. Cara and Matt's son, Silas, born at 28 weeks and 6 days gestation, weighing just 1 pound, 11 ounces provided these first time parents with memories they'll never forget. Listen in as she describes the (minimal) early preeclampsia symptoms and the slow road to recovery, after Silas was born, including keeping her heart healthy after preeclampsia.
Cara shares how some amazing nurses took care of Silas and her in postpartum; and then describes why she didn't get involved in support groups initially, yet eventually sought out peer support as she transitioned home with a NICU baby.
