Remember in the last Harry Potter film when Harry turns to Hermione and says, "When have any of our plans actually worked out? We plan, we get there and all hell breaks loose."

Yeah, sometimes that's childbirth. The not so wonderful world of pre-eclampsia is scary and intimidating. An unplanned c-section has to be one of the most terrifying experiences a mother can have.

But when you're lucky and surrounded by a great team of emotional support and good care providers, you end up having a healthy mom and baby on the other side. Here's little six pound and alert Madilyss to show you just that. Anjel, may you wear your childbirth battle scars proudly one day <3 You are so much stronger than you yet realize.
