The Young and the Restless News – It Was A Rough Week
“Lots of people have been checking in to see how I’m holding up,” Hendrickson started.
“I’ll be honest earlier this week was rough. The best advice I got during my pregnancy was ‘The best birth plan is no plan’ but by no means was I expecting this,” she continued.
“My midwife informed me at our 39-week appointment that we are no longer allowed to have anyone at the hospital except myself and [my husband] Rob. No doula, friends or family. My post-care plans have also changed drastically,” she added.

However, she also wanted to make her feelings known.
“I’m scared. I’ve never done this before. I wanted her to meet my close friends and family. I wanted to take her to lunch with my girlfriends while she was wrapped up against me. I don’t know when she will be able to meet anyone else. It may be a couple of months?” she said.
“I know we will get through this…I can’t wait to meet [my daughter] and see what she looks like. Sing to her and rock her to sleep. We are ready for her arrival. We’ve been waiting a long time for this…To anyone else that is dealing with this, I’m here for you…I plan to reach out as much as possible over social for advice, help or just some good ol’ humor !!” she continued.
