Carrita Flie’s Bio
I have experienced two miscarriages. 1 first trimester and 1 second trimester. The third time that I conceived I was labeled high risk and saw a specialist weekly. At 21 weeks I was told that my cervix had severely shortened and I needed to receive a cervical cerclage. Even with the cerclage, I experienced preterm labor at 26 weeks. I spent 117 days In the NICU with my son. This is not the journey into motherhood that I would have chosen, but I am so grateful for it! I’m from Chicago, IL. I am graduate of Washington University School of Law. I am 27 years old and have experienced two miscarriages. I am also the mom of Micropreemie who was born at 26 weeks.
