Rebecca, 39, suffered a massive stroke in her mid-30s that left her almost entirely incapacitated, although she recovered under the care of her doctors. The stroke was caused by a previously undiagnosed autoimmune disorder called antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS), which causes blood to clot more easily and can result in early miscarriages. Now that Rebecca is pregnant with her first child, her team of doctors must closely monitor her condition to ensure a safe delivery.
