Meet Those Who Have Been Supported
I cannot express how valuable your support was during my twin pregnancy. My husband was deployed overseas, and I had no family nearby. My volunteer checked on me almost every day! We chatted via Skype, emailed, and texted each other. I had a couple of scary times, and she was there giving me the strength to carry on. The babies arrived at 36 weeks and are doing great. I am so thankful for this wonderful organization.
Please accept this as a testimony to the power of Sidelines. I was diagnosed with placenta issues midway through my pregnancy and ordered to bed rest with two toddlers. I went on to the Sidelines Facebook discussion board and was immediately talking with 10 women that all had been in the same situation! They gave me such great advice and anytime I needed to vent, they were there. What a great thing to have others around that could truly understand. I made it to 38 weeks and now have another healthy boy.
After my pregnancy loss last year at 24 weeks, I was scared to try again. Since Sidelines was there for me the last time, as soon as I got pregnant I signed up for a volunteer. With a strong support system, bed rest, Makena injections, and my wonderful volunteer, I am happy to report that Brenna Rose made it to the world at 39 weeks. Your organization has made a difference in my life, and now it's my turn to get trained and become a volunteer!
