Congratulations to Southern Charm gal pal, Jennifer Snowden, who welcomed her son, James Ascher to the world on September 12.
A few months ago, Jennifer shared the news of her baby’s diagnosis of encephalocele, a rare type of neural tube defect (NTD) where the bones do not close completely. After giving birth, the new mom is just happy to be home after a “tumultuous” few days in the hospital.
Jennifer wrote on Instagram, “Ascher was born on Mon 9/12 @ 7:50am. He is doing great & we are now home after a tumultuous 1st few days. He is a strong little man. I’m trying to give him some time to himself but I’ll post a pic soon. Even my friends haven’t seen him yet. It’s been a just family kind of thing to give him some space to get stronger which he has. Thank you all for your kind words & concern,” she wrote. “I’ve not been on my phone at all since Monday but I’ll be back next week. Thank you again.”
Right before giving birth, Jennifer gave a shout out for prayers that little James Ascher “continued to be miraculously healed.”
“Our little baby Ascher is being born tomorrow @ 7am – if you’re up around that time or not too busy today, please say a prayer for him that his encephalocele on his brain has continued to be miraculously healed in the womb, which was evidenced by his 2nd fetal MRI on 7/28,” Jennifer wrote in a heartfelt post last Sunday. “We’ve been on a crazy emotional trajectory with this little guy but are so blessed by the news from 7/28 & hopeful that his prognosis remains the same or, God willing, even better once he’s born & the doctors can evaluate him more. THANK YOU ALL. I believe with all of my heart that. Your prayers have helped turned this little boy’s fate around. And for that, I am forever in your debt.”
Jennifer has promised fans she will post pictures of her son, Ascher, soon. This is the first child for Jennifer and her boyfriend Lee.
