One of the first clips in the video shows Truman being carried in a stretcher for her surgery followed by clips of her neighbors visiting.
Being pregnant, a woman might end up having constant fatigue and vomiting. It could be physically taxing but what's even more painful is someone losing their baby prematurely. That could be hard-hitting and probably one of the most difficult times for a couple. And support in such a situation could mean a lot. Tessa Truman (@tessatruman) on TikTok shared how her "village" showed up when she lost her baby after emergency surgery for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy.
Ectopic pregnancy is when a fertilized egg implants itself outside of the womb, usually in one of the fallopian tubes, according to the NHS website. The video seems to be a recording of the ring camera in front of their house. At first, Truman can be seen taken on a stretcher for her surgery. The overlay text reads, "Watch my village show up after an emergency surgery for a ruptured ectopic pregnancy" and one by one people can be seen appearing in front of their house.
First, about two to three people can be seen bringing in food, and next, a woman comes in with a beautiful bouquet, after which, another woman comes in with flowers. In the next clip, a woman can be seen bringing something in a jute tray, and then an elderly man with flowers in a vase. Then a few more come one-by-one coming with food packages, balloons, along with their dogs. This support must have meant a lot to the family.
Moreover, this sort of love might have helped the person to heal while having to go through such difficult times. The video is captioned, "Couldn't be more grateful for my village" and has about 12.4 million views. @lashesbykarol commented, "Going through an ectopic pregnancy was the scariest thing ever! Happy you have your village." @tinkeringscholar shared, "My village was only 4 people but they got me through after my ectopic in November." @elizabeththompso715 expressed, "It is beautiful to watch the women care for you but when the men showed up, that’s powerful. I’m glad you have this village." @kels.carter said, "I'm so sorry you had to go through this. But the people who brought their dog!! Love that lol."
In another similar story, neighbors showered love on a new mom after she arrived home with the baby. The video was shared by a woman who goes by the name @honeyathome on TikTok. The overlay text reads, "Watch my village show up after bringing home my newborn." People begin to appear in front of her house to show their support.
The first man comes with bags of food, and after that, a woman leaves a crate of water bottles for the mother. Next, a family comes in with gifts, and then a woman with adorable balloons for the baby. One of the beautiful parts of the video is that a man removing snow from the entryway.
The video is captioned, "Can't thank them enough for coming together and helping us adjust to our new life as parents…and for all the food." It truly shows the sort of relationship the couple share with their neighbors and proves how a village is needed to raise a child.
