It is a helpless feeling as a parent, when you see your child struggling to survive the minute they are born. It was tough for my wife and I as our first child was born and the NICU was immediately called in to assist him. It was the quick thinking of Doctor Jonathan Spector to immediately start my Son on antibiotics, and that decision was key in my Son's recovery. The doctors and nurses were there to answer any questions and offer support throughout his stay in the NICU. When it was time for our Daughter's delivery at UMass, we were confident that if any problems arose, that the NICU would be there. Fortunately, the NICU was already in the delivery room during my Daughter's delivery due to the possibilty of Meconium Aspiration. My Daughter was born with the umbilical cord wrapped tightly around her neck 7 times and tied in a knot. The NICU quickly took over and got our baby girl stabilized and she did not have to stay in the NICU as our Son did.
There are countless stories like mine, and I'm sure you know someone who has had outstanding care from the UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center Newborn Intensive Care Unit. Please give what you can to help.
