Hello, I’m Amanda & I’m 29 years old. I conceived my twins march 17, 2018.

At first I didn’t know I had twins until I was 6 weeks. At 9 weeks baby 1 was no longer there. Later on I found out I was having a girl. On November 21, 2018 I found out a good friend of mine had passed away due to a motorcycle accident. I was so devastated.

That same night was the last time I felt my daughter move. On November 25, my daughter was born sleeping so peacefully with the cord wrapped around her neck twice. I was 37 weeks.

This was my first pregnancy, first child, first love. I am so hurt, angry, emotional all the time, & depressed. Thanksgiving , Christmas and New Years will never be the same. I feel like my doctor was not doing his job fully throughout my pregnancy & he tried to say it was my fault that my daughter died.

I felt like I was alone, I never really heard of a baby being born “sleeping”, until I joined a few support groups on Facebook, and there are over thousands of women who are in the same boat as me. I joined this organization and other organizations so that I can share my story, so I can speak on behalf of my daughter. Her name IS Amelia Marie Figueroa, and she is my angel.”
