Mom Gives Birth To ᴀɴɢʀY-Faced Baby How Does She Look Like After One Year, She Is So Funny
A baby who ᴅᴇFᴇᴀᴛᴇᴅ the ᴏᴅᴅs to sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴇ after she was born with no ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ Fʟᴜɪᴅ ᴅᴇʟɪɢʜᴛᴇᴅ ʜᴇʀ ᴍᴏᴍ ᴡɪᴛʜ ʜᴇʀ ᴀɴɢʀʏ Fᴀᴄᴇ sʜᴏʀᴛʟʏ after her birth. Now, the 21-month-old is a healthy, happy child but still continues to have a ɢʀᴜᴍᴘʏ face. When Hollie Wallis was pregnant with Winter Josephine, she was in absolute disbelief as she’d been told by doctors that she would ʀᴇǫᴜɪʀᴇ Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴍᴇᴅɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴ in order to fall pregnant.
“I’d had 2 sᴜʀɢᴇʀɪᴇs ᴛʜᴇ ᴘʀᴇᴠɪᴏᴜs year to ʀᴇᴍᴏᴠᴇ ᴀ ᴠᴇʀʏ ʟᴀʀɢᴇ ᴍᴀss Fʀᴏᴍ ᴍʏ ᴜᴛᴇʀᴜs. I almost ended up with a hysterectomy, but I was incredibly lucky the surgery was a success and I was given the opportunity to have another baby.” Hollie sai
Hollie had a mostly uneventful pregnancy. Even when her due date passed, Hollie didn’t worry, as she had late births with her two previous children.
However, when she visited her OB to take a 41-week ᴜʟᴛʀᴀsᴏᴜɴᴅ, she found out something was ᴡʀᴏɴɢ. “I ᴄᴏᴜʟᴅ ᴛᴇʟʟ ʙʏ ᴛʜᴇ ʟᴏᴏᴋ ᴏɴ ʜɪs Fᴀᴄᴇ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ɪᴛ ᴡᴀsɴ’ᴛ ɢᴏᴏᴅ ɴᴇᴡs. I can’t find any ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ Fʟᴜɪᴅ,’ he said. My heart sunk. I didn’t have any signs that something was wrong so I was completely sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ.” Hollie said
Soon thereafter, Hollie was ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsᴇᴅ ᴡɪᴛʜ Oʟɪɢᴏʜʏᴅʀᴀᴍɴɪᴏs.
Oligohydramnios is a condition of having too little ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ Fʟᴜɪᴅ. It can cause complications in about 12 percent of pregnancies that go past 41 weeks. “The ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ Fʟᴜɪᴅ is essential for the development of ᴍᴜsᴄʟᴇs, ʟɪᴍʙs, ʟᴜɴɢs, ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇ ᴅɪɢᴇsᴛɪᴠᴇ sʏsᴛᴇᴍ,” according to the American Pregnancy Association.
“Before this pregnancy I had never even heard of it and had absolutely no idea how serious it was,” Hollie said, adding that after a second ᴜʟᴛʀᴀsᴏᴜɴᴅ, doctors confirmed that there were small pockets of ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ Fʟᴜɪᴅ in the womb.
“[That] was such a relief,” she said. “The baby was really healthy on the monitor and had a ɢʀᴇᴀᴛ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙᴇᴀᴛ ᴀɴᴅ I ᴡᴀs ᴇxᴘᴇʀɪᴇɴᴄɪɴɢ ʟᴏᴛs ᴏF ᴍᴏᴠᴇᴍᴇɴᴛ, sᴏ I ᴡᴀs ʙᴏᴏᴋᴇᴅ ɪɴ Fᴏʀ ᴀɴ ɪɴᴅᴜᴄᴛɪᴏɴ.”
As much as a relief this news was, the delivery didn’t go as smoothly as Hollie had hoped. While she was getting ready to be ɪɴᴅᴜᴄᴇᴅ, ᴛʜᴇ ʙᴀʙʏ’s ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴡᴀs ᴅʀᴏᴏᴘɪɴɢ ᴀɴᴅ ᴛʜᴇɴ ᴀᴄᴄᴇʟᴇʀᴀᴛɪɴɢ. Iᴛ ᴡᴀs ᴛʜᴇɴ ᴅᴇᴄɪᴅᴇᴅ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴀ C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ would be the only safe way to get the baby out and had to be done immediately. A nurse then hit an ᴇᴍᴇʀɢᴇɴᴄʏ ʙᴜᴛᴛᴏɴ, ᴀɴᴅ ʙᴇFᴏʀᴇ Hᴏʟʟɪᴇ ᴄᴏᴜʟᴅ ɢᴀᴛʜᴇʀ ᴡʜᴀᴛ ᴡᴀs ʜᴀᴘᴘᴇɴɪɴɢ, sʜᴇ ᴡᴀs sᴜʀʀᴏᴜɴᴅᴇᴅ by 10 people.
In the midst of being hooked up to an IV, doctors and nurses tried to stabilize the baby’s heart rate, and she received news that would make any parent’s ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ sᴇᴇᴍɪɴɢʟʏ sᴛᴏᴘ.
“An OB came in to talk to me about the ᴘᴏssɪʙɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴏF ᴍʏ ʙᴀʙʏ ʙᴇɪɴɢ ʙʀᴀɪɴ ᴅᴇᴀᴅ ᴅᴜᴇ ᴛᴏ ʜᴇʀ ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ʀᴀᴛᴇ,” Hollie recalled.
However, after the baby’s ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ ʀᴀᴛᴇ sᴛᴀʙɪʟɪᴢᴇᴅ, ᴛʜᴇ Fʀᴀɴᴛɪᴄ ᴍᴏᴛʜᴇʀ ᴡᴀs ʀᴜsʜᴇᴅ ɪɴᴛᴏ ᴛʜᴇ ᴏᴘᴇʀᴀᴛɪɴɢ ʀᴏᴏᴍ Fᴏʀ ᴀ C-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ.
Fortunately, Hollie says “after what felt like forever,” the doctors ᴘᴜʟʟᴇᴅ the little infant out safely, and the grateful mother heard her daughter cry for the first time.
Luckily, the baby was healthy and they were able to initiate skin-to-skin contact right away. “The OB said that he didn’t find one single drop of ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ Fʟᴜɪᴅ during my C-section and he’d never seen that before,” Hollie recalled.
As soon as Winter was whisked from recovery back to the hospital room, Hollie stared at Winter.
“As perfect as she was,” said Hollie, “I couldn’t help but laugh because she looked so ᴀɴɢʀY.
“If I had to guess what she was thinking at that very point in time, it would have been, ‘I was comfortable in there. Put me back!’ Everyone that saw her said the exact same thing. ‘She looks so mad!’”
However, it was only after Winter was 2 weeks old, and when Hollie was looking for a newborn photographer, that Hollie realized how dangerous Oligohydramnios was.
“I told her about Winter being born with no ᴀᴍɴɪᴏᴛɪᴄ Fʟᴜɪᴅ and she told me that a lot of the angel babies she photographs are due to the exact same condition,” Hollie said. “It made me realize how lucky I am to have Winter here and how strong and determined she is.”
Hollie now delightedly shares Winter’s ᴀɴɢʀY faces on her Instagram page, called “Moods Of Winter.”
As for Winter, who is currently 21 months old, Hollie told The Epoch Times via social media that “she’s … healthy, happy, but still has a ɢʀᴜᴍᴘʏ face.”
“Every time I look at her little ᴀɴɢʀY face, I think about how close I was to not having her and I am just so thankful she’s healthy and strong,” Hollie told Love What Matters. “She continues to make the angriest faces and they are absolutely hilarious. I have never met a baby with more personality.”
