His Wife Died After Their Child Was Born, Later That Day He Had Something To Tell The World.
Childbirth is extremely difficult, whether you plan on having a C-section, or natural birth, but if there’s one thing that scares us is dying from childbirth. Each year, 900 women had reportedly died from childbirth, while 65,000 have experienced complications that ended up their lives. Matt and Liz’s story is no stranger to tragedy, but Matt couldn’t help but shake the feeling that there was a lot more to Liz’s untimely death.
It Was Love At First Sight
Matt Logelin met the love of his life, Liz Goodman, when they were both in high school. Once school was over, they went their separate ways to attend college, but managed to stay in touch, despite the distance. But Matt couldn’t cope with the idea of being so far away from Liz, so he gave up the possibility of getting his Ph.D. to move closer to Liz, who was studying in California. They dated for 9 years, and tied the knot on August 13, 2005.
Working Hard, Making Money
Matt was quickly hired to work as a project manager for Yahoo, but the position entailed a lot of international travel, as he was the head of the outsourcing program in India. Meanwhile, Liz had a prolific career as an executive at Disney. The couple was doing really well together, and both of their careers seem to be taking off, which is what prompted Matt to start blogging about his life, Liz, and the adventures they had together.
Making Memories Last
Matt was looking to document the little things in life that made him happy, such as all the incredible adventures he’s been on, and the many countries he’d visited. Liz was quite the traveler herself, and would often times join in on his trips. When the lovebirds traveled to Nepal, Matt got on one knee and popped the question at Durbar Square. So far, their relationship was pretty much picture-perfect, especially after realizing their family was about to expand.
Two Become One, And Then Three
Liz discovered she was pregnant in 2007, and news quickly brightened the lives of their loved ones who were overjoyed that after 10 years, these two were finally growing their family. Matt quickly told everyone the news and blogged about their shared happiness: the family was finally expanding! Matt had always wanted to be a dad, and was finally making his dreams come true. But despite being truly happy, Liz had to endure a few complications during her pregnancy.
Bumpy Road Ahead
Pregnant women face a myriad of symptoms that are considered to be normal, such as morning sickness, bloating, and other ailments. But Liz’s symptoms were a bit more extreme, so the doctor suggested she’d take 3 weeks of bed rest back at home. Sadly, that wasn’t enough, so the doctors ordered her to rest at the local hospital for 2 more weeks. As usual, Matt was standing by her side, rock solid.
