I know. They told me that the mortalitly rate for vaginal deliveries or undiagnosed VP are 95%!!! The baby loses their entire blood volume in just 5 minutes. Its so so scary and sad! What a precious miracle you have! <3

There's a web site for the vasa previa organization. I have my story posted there. I'm sure yours would be appreciated as well. Just google it to find it. If you can't find it, I can add a link later. (On phone now.)
