“I am able to grow a new life. Now that I am in a stable period, the little life in my stomach is growing up quickly, and both my husband and wife are happy. At first, I wanted to report after giving birth safely, but due to work reasons, it will affect my future schedule, so it was decided that I will report at this opportunity.”
