Please give more women and babies a chance to celebrate Mother’s Day together.
Little Teddi was born at 24 weeks, weighing just 422 grams. A micro premmie, he was too weak to breathe on his own and was immediately put on mechanical ventilation at the Women’s.
Celeste is sharing her heartbreaking story this Mother’s Day in the hope that her experience will inspire others to show their support for the Women’s.
“Our kids are our future, if we can get the right care, equipment, education and research that’s so desperately needed we’ll be able to bring these babies home to their mothers’ and parents’ arms."
Research plays a big role in the Women’s NICU. During her time with us, Celeste came to understand the importance of clinical research and the potentially life-changing impact neonatal research can have on a pre-term baby’s life.
Your gift will help us improve outcomes for patients like Celeste and Teddi, by supporting life-saving research, support programs, equipment and resources so more mothers and babies have a chance to celebrate Mother’s Day together.
