Katie Has A Baby

Roberto Martinez

Katie Kilpatrick's story is about how fierce you have to be to be a Mom. This tale takes us through not one, but two high-stakes births, where Katie may lose a child or herself in the process.  Along the way she talks of fear, confusion, and a lot of time in the neonatal intensive care unit.

This story was recorded at Brick at Blue Star on October 2 as part of Worth Repeating's "Suckerpunch" show.
