March for Babies

The Baab-Bernard Ambassador Family Story Our beautiful daughter Anna is now 8 years old. We are so grateful she is healthy after spending the first month of her life in the NICU. Sadly though, she will never meet her brother, our first child, who we named Colden after a beautiful mountain in New York State. On December 17th, 2008, when I as almost 35 weeks pregnant with Colden, I went into early labor. I didn’t know that my water had actually broken days earlier and that my precious son had a massive infection. When we got to the hospital we got the news that no parent wants to hear: that he was already gone. There was nothing we could do. Our doctors and nurses were amazingly good; they did all they could do for us, but my husband and I were devastated. The grief does not go away but one of the things that most helped my slow healing process was the March of Dimes. With my second pregnancy, I recognized the symptoms of premature birth so I was admitted to the hospital after my water broke early again. Anna was born at 32 weeks and 4 days. She spent 31 days in the NICU and thanks to the many medical advances that the March of Dimes helped to develop, she is a very healthy little girl today.
