In October 2016 Leah and Ben got married on a breezy, sunny afternoon. “I vow to love you in every way that I can,” Leah said, holding her husband-to-be’s hands. However, that romantic day would prove to be the complete opposite of how the next few months of their lives would unfold.
“A month after the wedding, she started getting some headaches and nausea. And I thought, ‘Oh, yes, she’s pregnant.’ I was stoked,” Ben said, clearly happy at the idea of having a child with his new wife. Just to be sure, Leah saw two doctors about the ongoing pain, and they told her that it was caused by stress due to her recent nuptials.
