The mother of quadruplets who nearly died shortly after giving birth is touching hearts all over the world with her powerful and inspiring story.
Dr Monica Peeler-Reed, a pediatrician from Nashville, was thrilled when she and husband Fred were told that they were expecting four little bundles of joy.
In the weeks leading up to her due-date Monica began to experience extreme shortness of breath which she incorrectly assumed was caused by her allergies.
Soon after giving birth to her four babies she began to feel very unwell and decided to conduct a self-assessment using her diagnosis skills.
Monica quickly realised that the set of symptoms she presented with were those of imminent heart failure.
She got a second opinion and was immediately put on medication for the treatment of hypertensive heart disease.
As a new mother she couldn't bear the thought of her babies growing up without a mother, and willed herself to get better.
Watch the video below and prepare to be truly inspired by what Monica has to say.
