Heather Ralston is a Meet-Up Leader in Baltimore, MD. She is a Baltimore, MD native where she lives with her husband and one living son. Heather and her husband were very excited to find out she was pregnant again in December 2016. Her first pregnancy was perfectly normal and her second pregnancy appeared to be that way until her 20-week anatomy scan in March 2017. During that scan, Heather discovered that her second son, Aiden, had a severe case of hydrops fetalis. After two weeks of testing, meetings with doctors and genetic counselors, Aiden died at 22 weeks gestation, with no known cause of the hydrops ever found. Less than 10 weeks after Aiden’s death, Heather became pregnant again with her soon-to-be rainbow baby, due in March 2018. Heather has gone through the grief process and the pregnancy after loss process all at the same time. A pregnancy after a loss is a hard journey to navigate without the support of family, friends and other loss mothers. Heather was very happy to find PALS’ online support and is excited to be a part of the Meet-Up program in order to help and support others through pregnancy after loss.
