As the old saying goes, the smallest coffins are the heaviest. The death of a loved one is a painful experience, but it hurts more to know that the person was robbed of a bright life ahead of him. Just like what happened to this 4-month-old fetus, who died the same day he was born.
People on social media couldn’t help but be saddened over the tragic death of a 4-month-old fetus who never got to see the light of day. Engulfed with grief from the loss of her child, the mother took to social media to share the heartbreaking story of her baby.
Earlier this week, a woman shocked social media when she recalled her story that will surely take you on a roller coaster of emotions. Just like so many first-time parents, discovering her pregnancy gave her a euphoric feeling. However, that joy was short-lived after a tragic incident months later.
During her fourth month of pregnancy, she was startled to notice that her water ruptured. In a normal pregnancy, this is a definite sign of childbirth during the third trimester. However, for her, it signaled the oncoming ordeal that will haunt her for months.
At Cebu Doctors University Hospital, the doctors performed an ultrasound in order to determine the condition of the baby inside her. Based on her elaborate Facebook post, she bravely endured this stressful situation for the sake of her unborn child:
“It hurts so much seeing you in the ultrasound holding mama tight despite being jammed inside my tummy. It breaks my heart knowing that you were fighting but still not able to live.”
On January 14, due to her complicated situation, the young mother was forced to go into early labor. Just moments after being born, her 4-month-old fetus whom she named Franco Davis passed away. A quiet funeral was held to pay respects for her child.
Just days after posting her story, the mother’s heartbreaking post spread like wildfire online. Overflowing love and support rained upon the comments section from people who were touched by her story. Indeed, the death of an innocent child brings overwhelming grief to anyone with a soul.
