Delayed Motherhood: A fight to just be a mom

Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -

A new mother is fighting to do just that, be a mommy after giving birth.

Josephine was born at 8:08 a.m.on December 9th 2015 to Laura and Darin Adams. She is a healthy baby girl, but shortly after an emergency c-section, Laura's health started to decline.

"She has never changed Josiphine's diaper. She has never breast-fed, bottle-fed Josiphine. You know all of these first," said Darin Adams, Josephine's dad.

While Laura was pregnant she developed gallstones, not uncommon in pregnancy. A few weeks before her due date, Laura felt something seriously wrong.

"We were in labor and delivery less than two minutes before the OBGYN came in and said I'm calling an emergency C-section right now," said Darin Adams.
