We must thank God for giving us mothers as a world without them is unimaginable. Kim Alberts, a mother of a baby girl, wants to raise awareness about Postpartum Thyroid Condition, a rare condition that kills 75% of the people suffering from it. She said, “I feel an obligation to be open about a rare postpartum thyroid condition I have developed since giving birth in hopes that raising awareness can help and protect another fellow mom from having to endure and figure out alone what I have had to since December. Four months after this picture was taken, my whole world was turned upside down.”
Luckily for Kim, a doctor was able to diagnose her Postpartum in its early stages. She said, “He also told me it kills 75% of people that get it and admitted me immediately for further evaluation. The fact that he was able to correctly diagnose me in such a short amount of time was nothing short of an absolute miracle that probably ended up saving my life. And here I am by myself hooked up to machines trying to breastfeed a 4-month-old in my lap in a different state with no family, no friends, and a husband who was at work in downtown Denver. I am honestly in tears just reliving this day in my mind.” Despite all odds, she was able to survive the ordeal, along with her precious daughter!
