Guest Blog: Torn and Stitched

June 26, 2020

After giving birth to her baby boy, Savannah was torn a little further than expected. Her midwife told her she had developed a fistula and used stitches to slow the leaking. Savannah visited a local urogynecologist but had to wait over two months for surgery. It only took a few weeks into post op for the leaking to return. Hopeless and exhausted, she joined a support group and found help through WFF Board Member, Dr. Richter. Savannah is now healed and uses embroidery to spread awareness and support her fistula sisters around the world.
