Mamas on Bedrest: For Prematurity Awareness Day, A Talk with “Sweetie’s Mama”

November 18th, 2011

On Twitter she’s known as @Sweetiesmama, but Charisse Mora Medina is so much more! Mama, wife and preemie activist, Mora Medina has gained a wealth of knowledge in learning to care for “Sweetie”.  From her intuitive knowing that “Sweetie” was coming, to his early birth and subsequent NICU stay, Mora Medina has traveled and maneuvered a multitude of conundrums in an effort to secure the best care for her child-including her own battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. Now that “Sweetie” is almost 2 years old, Mora Medina has shifted her focus (at least some of it) to helping other preemie parents. So her is Mora Medina in her own words as she shared the wisdom she has gained in raising “Sweetie”.

    It was my pleasure to talk with you. You were awesome it was my first time talking with anyone about my experience and I appreciate you taking a chance on me. You have encouraged so many women myself included to advocate for ourselves and share our knowledge. You have so many informative links on your site and I want everyone to know its so much more then ‘bedrest’ information. I have started sharing your Twitter account & FBpage with friends and family.
    Again, thank you so much for the opportunity and I look forward to talking with you again.

    Charisse, your story was just right for some mama out there. You have such a wealth of knowledge, I could see that you needed just a little “push” to really get out there!! Glad to be the “push”. Don’t shy away, speak boldly and proudly. You are the expert many mamas need. You can share from a place so many of us can’t. This place needs to be filled with your voice. Go mama, go!
