Alisha and Kamry Berry
BABY’S AGE/BIRTHDAY: 1 year / 4-5-19
SPOUSE NAME: Brandon Berry
Kamry Rose made her entrance into the world at 37 weeks after a rollercoaster delivery and a little visit in the NICU due to her high heart rate. Because none of this was planned, of course, mom Alisha Berry said that her delivery was a bit terrifying, especially after being put on bed rest for a month prior to delivery due to preeclampsia. However, despite the whirlwind surrounding her birth, Berry said that the first year of motherhood with Kamry has been “absolutely amazing! I never knew that I could love someone so much.”
Motherhood is full of things you don’t expect. For Berry, she wasn’t expecting time to go by so quickly. “Seems like yesterday, that we were bringing her home from the hospital and now she is soon to be one.” She also shares that after she delivered she wasn’t prepared for postpartum depression. “Postpartum depression is a real thing. More people deal with this than we think. I though it was just me. This was the one thing no one told me to prepare for.”
As Kamry is nearing her first birthday, Berry shares advice for new moms and that is “YOU are an amazing mom. Don’t get caught up in comparing yourself to other moms. The best mom your baby knows is YOU!”
