Dajah Williams had been through a lot of pain and always wanted to be a mother. Her dreams came true last month.
A woman who experienced the heartbreak of four miscarriages has given birth to a baby girl. Dajah Williams had always wanted to have a baby but suffered heavily as she suffered four miscarriages. It had taken a severe toll on her but she wanted to become a mother and was blessed with a baby late last month. She gave birth to Kaeli Grace on July 26, 2022, at 10.33 pm. Williams had been through a lot getting to motherhood and one of her biggest hurdles came at the very end as she endured lengthy labor, and without a painkiller.
She took to Facebook to share the happy news, "I went through 13 hours of active labor and about 5 minutes of pushing WITHOUT an epidural and my baby girl finally made her arrival at 6 pounds 9 oz! Say hello to my Rainbow baby, Kaeli Grace," she wrote, before adding. "I’m so in love with her! 4 miscarriages later and God gave me you." Dajah Williams documented her resilient journey to becoming a mother and Facebook and is now flooded with congratulatory reactions. "Congratulations to you, she’s BEAUTIFUL!!! I honestly know the feeling!!!! There’s ALWAYS A RAINBOW after the storm!" wrote Liz Spencer. "I’m so proud of you, you're a strong woman and a super mom," added Clarke.
They say it takes a village to raise a child and Williams couldn't have been more blessed when it comes to loved ones. Her family and friends organized a baby shower as her due date closer and some of the pictures are as adorable as it gets. She posted pictures from the baby shower and aptly captioned it: "Our village." In another post, she wrote, "I always find the ones who don’t do anything with their families, which leaves me with mine because one thing about my family, we gonna get together!" she wrote. Williams reserved special love for her mother on the latter's birthday. "It’s my best friend’s birthday, happy 42nd Ma, you look toooo good gwrol, you’ve been the best mother, I can’t wait to see you as Kaeli’s grandma! Love you so much," she commented alongside a couple of pictures of her mother.
Miscarriage is still considered taboo by many and thus not many people talk about it. This gives the impression that it's not as common as it actually is. "A spontaneous abortion, also known as miscarriage, is defined as the loss of pregnancy less than 20 weeks gestation," as per the National Library of Medicine. As per the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), miscarriage is the most common form of pregnancy loss. It is estimated that as many as 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage and up to 10% of clinically recognized pregnancies.
