Annika explains premature birth of son

Annika Sorenstam gave birth to her son, William, yesterday just 27 weeks into the pregnancy.

She shared a Facebook note posted on the LPGA Official Page about why her son was born 13 weeks premature.

Sorenstam said she suffered from placenta abruption and had contractions and dilation. The doctors tried to slow things down, but determined that it was best to deliver the baby by Caesarean section.

“The process went well and William Nicholas McGee wasborn 2.12 lbs and 15 inches long … at 6:33 p.m.,” Sorenstam wrote.

William is in the NICU at Winnie Palmer Hospital, which specializes in care for women and babies, in Orlando, Fla. Sorenstam reports that, while she is recovering nicely, the next two months will be critical for the baby.
“Mike, Ava (her daughter), Will and I want to thank everyone for your thoughts, prayers and concern,” she wrote.
