Johnathan Edward would have been the first child of Jamie Otis (reality TV personality, jewelry designer, and registered nurse) and Doug Hehner if he didn’t die at 17 weeks.
Delivered at 17 Weeks
Johnathan Edward died just 4 months after his mother’s first pregnancy due to a miscarriage. His parents announced about their first pregnancy in July 2016. Unfortunately, they lost their child just a few months later.
After three months of his death, his mother shared a picture of the early-born baby boy talking about infant death awareness.
October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. I can’t sleep well tonight so I blogged about my sweet boy, Johnathan Edward. I realize there is a great stigma associated with sharing photos of your baby who was born too early and has already gone to heaven so I want to say sorry if this offends you. However, if there’s one thing my husband has taught me it’s this: “Don’t live life trying NOT to offend anyone and trying to please everyone.” I hope by me sharing my sweet boy, Johnny (as Doug and I call him), you’ll realize that he’s a harmless, helpless baby who deserves to be remembered, not hidden away because his image may offend someone. And if you’ve lost your baby early, please know that you’re not alone. Unfortunately, 1 in 4 women are affected by this. Yet, no one talks about it. I hope this can change. I’ll be the first in my circle. You be the first in yours. My prayers go out to everyone who has lost their sweet baby too early.❤️
On one of the episodes of their Hot Marriage Cool Parents podcast, Jamie shared about the loss of her first child in 2016.
