Welcoming your first child is a very emotional process. There’s excitement, anticipation, and a degree of worry.
Every new parent wants to see their child’s entrance into the world go smoothly. Sadly, such is not always the case. That’s the predicament Danielle Fishel and husband Jensen Karp find themselves in. The Boy Meets World actress and the writer each detailed the story of their son’s entrance into the world in their own Instagram posts. Both explained that Adler Lawrence Karp was born four weeks early on June 24.
Both Danielle and Jensen documented the events right before and after Adler’s birth in a serious, yet optimistic manner.
After Danielle’s water broke, doctors tried to slow preterm labor by putting her on magnesium sulfate. An ultrasound revealed fluid in the baby’s lung cavities that had not been present at their checkup days prior, requiring immediate action. Since his early birth, Adler has remained in the NICU as doctors and nurses work to nurse him back to health, taking the new parents on an emotional roller coaster.
