Born For This: Embracing the Journey from High-Risk to Hopeful

Born For This: Embracing the Journey from High-Risk to Hopeful


From the moment you see those two pink lines on the pregnancy test, your whole world changes. Pregnancy is a time of joyful expectation. Soon-to-be parents anxiously count down the days until their little one's arrival. They watch as Mama’s belly grows, giggle as baby kicks and rolls in her stomach, and buy everything needed to make the newest addition to the family feel welcome.

It’s a beautiful time full of happiness. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to be. Shelbi Zimmerman had a much different experience.

Of course, there was excitement and joy. But their expectations were quickly shadowed by some bad news. Their twelve-week prenatal appointment ushered in a new reality. Shelbi and her husband were forced to confront the challenges of a high-risk pregnancy. Their precious baby was diagnosed with an Omphalocele, a rare birth defect where the fetus’ organs grow on the outside of the body.

At the end of twenty-four weeks, they found their prenatal care thrust into a world of chaos as a global pandemic changed everything. Born For This is a raw and gripping narrative that captures Shelbi’s resilience and growth through a high-risk pregnancy to embrace her most cherished title – Mom.

Shelbi's commitment to helping high-risk mothers find hope has become a driving force in her life and a theme throughout this book. Through her journey, she has discovered a profound connection to the strength and resilience within women during times of adversity. This is more than a story; it's a testament to the indomitable power of determination, love, and the unwavering support of community. Born For This encourages readers to find grace in their own journeys and serves as an inspiring tribute to the triumph of the human spirit.
