Today’s guest motherhood journey did not start out as planned. She conceived two months after getting married with twins. Her and her husband were both enlisted in the Marine Corps and he was stationed in California while she stayed in North Carolina. Theresa Alexis woke up bleeding at 20 weeks pregnant and was rushed on base to the Naval hospital where they took their time to get her back and was told her twins had no heartbeat and hopefully, she wasn't as far along as they'd thought. In this episode, Theresa takes us back to the emotions she felt in that moment, how her husband flew back to her, and the military treatment received post loss with fear, anxiety, and depression. This episode is for you to listen to if you are a veteran and are currently enlisted in the military or have experienced a twin loss.
