When I was born I was very sick. I had a condition that I was admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit — or the NICU — when I was a baby, and my parents really weren’t sure if I was going to survive. Ever since then — obviously I survived — and my father has always told me, just quietly, that, “You should think about medicine. You can give back. This is how you were saved.”
We are allowed to participate in the care of these babies and these families at a very vulnerable time — a very high stress time — a time that should be very happy. And often if we’re called to the delivery, it may not be as happy as the family had envisioned when they first found out they were pregnant. But over the days, weeks, months, we really get to know the families well. We work together and do our best to help the family get the baby home.
