Bollywood actress, Dia Mirza had a difficult pregnancy as she had a C-section delivery in the sixth month of pregnancy. For the unversed, Dia's son was a pandemic baby. It was only after her son came home after a month, that Dia announced the arrival of her baby. For the unversed, after dating for a few years, Dia had tied the knot with Vaibhav in an intimate ceremony.
Dia and Vaibhav's journey of being parents wasn't an easy one as their son was a premature baby, and he was in NICU for 90 days. The actress had announced the arrival of her son, when he was back home. On July 14, 2021, Dia revealed in a long note that she had an emergency C-section delivery, after which, her baby was admitted to NICU.
"To paraphrase Elizabeth Stone, "To have a child is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." These words perfectly exemplify Vaibhav and my feelings right now. Our heartbeat, our son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi was born on May 14th. Having arrived early, our little miracle has since then been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the Neonatal ICU."
Recently, in an interview with Faridoon Shahryar, Dia talked about her difficult pregnancy journey. She revealed that in the fifth month of her pregnancy, she had appendix surgery, which led to a bacterial infection. Dia further added that her placenta was hemorrhaging and the doctor said they had to pull her baby out. Dia was quoted as saying:
"It was hard. It was very hard. I got sick. I had to have appendix surgery while I was pregnant in my fifth month of pregnancy which led to some bacterial infections. My placenta was hemorrhaging and the doctor said that I have to pull your baby out."
Dia revealed that her son had to go through surgery within 36 hours of birth. She also shared that within 3 months of birth, he had to go through another surgery and was in NICU. The doting mother also revealed that she wasn't allowed to hold her baby till he was three and a half months old.
On the first birthday of Avyaan, Dia had recalled his health condition. The doting had bared her out on the moment when she was informed about her son's surgery to save his life. Sharing a monochrome picture with her baby, Dia had written:
"Our Jaan, our miracle, you were born on this day 1 year ago with the song ‘Imagine’ playing. You were 3 months premature at 820 gms. 36 hours after birth we discovered you had necrotising enterocolitis and had to go through life saving surgery. You were cared for and nourished in the NICU with a stoma for 90days and finally sent home to us with a stoma."
Well, Dia is definitely an inspiration for all the moms!
