CafeMom is excited to welcome Kate Hopper, author of Ready for Air: A Journey Through Premature Motherhood, to the Pregnancy group. Kate will be taking your questions until November 1st.

Kate breaks the silence and shares what it's like to be thrust into motherhood before she had anticipated. She shares a harrowing, poignant and occasionally hysterical journey through premature motherhood, from the starting point of 'leaking a little protein' to the early delivery of her tiny daughter because of severe preeclampsia and the beginning of a new chapter of frightful, lifelong love. 

Want to know more about premature birth, NICU stays, preeclampsia, or how to write out your story? Ask your questions here!  Kate will answer your questions starting October 28 through November 1. Three moms who ask a question will win a copy of Kate's book: Ready for Air: A Journey Through Premature Motherhood.

What was the first indication that you had pre eclampsia? How long was it from diagnosis to your daughter's birth?

You have been through so much! How scary!

Did you know anyone who had had a premature baby before your own? How informed were you about it before experiencing it?

Is your daughter your only child? If yes, do you plan more?

How do you get over the trama of having a nicu baby?
Does it get easier? Or do you still feel like you are grieving the fact you didn't get the birth and beginning you had wanted and expected?
