The Chanler Family

As most young couples do, we wanted nothing more than to be parents and start a family. Our journey to having the family did not come easily. After several failed fertility treatments, we finally made the decision to try IVF and after our first transfer, we were PREGNANT. We were so very excited and felt so blessed. We found out quickly that we were pregnant with twins and then found out we were having a boy, Bryce Wendel and a girl, Bristol Anne. Being this was our first pregnancy we didn't know what to expect. Everything was going great until 24 weeks. It was a weekend and after a day of shopping, I didn't feel so well, but thought I was just tired from shopping and being pregnant. Fast forward to Sunday morning and I knew something was not right. The on-call doctor asked me to please come immediately to labor and delivery. After I arrived, much to my surprise I was in full-blown labor. Within hours, I delivered the twins and they were swept away to the NICU. Once they were assessed, we were told by the doctors that their chances of survival were slim but they would do everything they could to give them a chance. This is exactly what the doctors did. Everything was done that could be done, but unfortunately the twins both passed due to their medical complications associated with a premature birth. While our hearts were broken, we knew that to honor their lives and their impacts on our lives we had to share their story. This is when we were introduced to March of Dimes through their March for Babies event. With family and friends, we created Team B-Squared and find great joy in sharing the mission of March for Dimes. To share their story is to honor their lives and to give hope to other families who experience loss or the birth of premature children.
