El amor por los primeros hijos

Posted by: Paula Zelaya

Isa es mi primer amor, mi sueño de ser mamá hecho realidad; mi primera compañera de desvelos, de amamantadas con miedos y una pregunta constante cual es ¿Qué hago ahora con esta bebé? Con ella he aprendido a ser mejor persona y mejor mamá.  Es mi guía y maestra para entender que funciona, que no funciona y tal vez que puedo hacer diferente con sus hermanas Sabri y Mikis. Con ella he aprendido a superar miedos y obstáculos que me permiten estar más tranquila y segura cuando los vivo con mis otras dos chiquitas.

First Time Medical Mom

My first experience as a parent was consenting to surgery, the first of quite a few that would take place in Oscar’s first year of life.  The decision was clear — of course, I would consent. The alternative to surgery was quite grim. The medical interventions that Oscar would endure in the first few days of life were life-saving and absolutely necessary, but that doesn’t take away from how scary and difficult they were to endure.
