Season three, episode 15 of This Is Us hit fans hard, which is saying a lot for a show that makes us cry every Tuesday. The emotional stakes were raised as viewers waited to see if Kate (Chrissy Metz) and her baby would pull through after she went into labor at only 28 weeks pregnant. It struck a chord with fans, but for some it hit much closer to home.
Inspired by Kate not only surviving her dangerous labor, but vowing to fight for little Jack’s life, many real-life mothers who gave birth to premature babies shared their stories on Twitter. Daniela Cardenas was one of them.
