Warning: this episode includes loss
This is a birth story episode and it’s a bit of a different one. Today we have Eileen Robertson Hamra on the podcast. After having 3 children with her first husband, Brian, Eileen had a tubal ligation because she was certain she did not want any more children. However, Brian was tragically killed in a plane crash when their children were 4, 7, and 8 and Eileen was 41.
She was lucky enough to fall in love and marry another man, Mike, 5 years after Brian’s death. Her new husband had no biological children so she opened herself up to the possibility of another child. After undergoing IVF at the age of 45, Eileen got pregnant using her own eggs, giving birth to an 11 lb 5 oz healthy baby at the age of 46. And you’re going to hear all the details of that journey today.
