In the 1950’s Doctor John Clements realized something important about the way lungs function. He realized that a substance known as surfactant made the alveoli easier to inflate and keep inflated. His research eventually led a Harvard Medical Student Dr. Mary Ellen Avery to realize that the lungs of premature babies can't make the surfactant needed to keep their lungs inflated. Prior to the discovery of surfactant many children born at less than 37 weeks' gestation died from RDS (Respitory Distress Syndrome). It took nearly 40 years from the initial discovery in the early '50s to the first approval of the FDA in the 1990s. This discovery has helped change the mortality from RDS from above 90 percent in the 1950’s to less than 5 percent today(Information credit of NPR.org). #prematurityawareness #prematurityawarenessmonth #nicugrad #preemiemom #preemiebaby #preemiepower #babygirl #nicumom #family #miraclebaby #nicubaby #babyboy #love #nicuawareness #nicustrong #cute #preemieprincess #newborn #preemiemom #nicudad #prematurebaby #preemie #preemies #micropreemie
I’ve been taking part in the Go the Distance for Bliss challenge for NICU Awareness. This was a challenge to cover as many miles as you could in the gym, walking, running, cycling or whatever you chose! Parents of NICU babies travel many miles every day to go to see their babies in the units. This challenge was to help to raise awareness of the distance parents and families travel to visit their babies during the difficult time in the NICU #gothedistanceforbliss #nicuawareness #nicu #nicubabies #nicufamilies #nicumiracle #preemies #preemiebaby #preemiestrong #nicufamilies #preemiefamilies #raiseawareness #blisscharity #awareness #challenge #pageantplatform #yamiqueen #aspiretoinspire #youngamericanmissinternationalsupremebeauty 👑
“Can you believe it’s November already?! And what a big November it will be for us! 2 年前發佈 I was just hitting the second trimester of my third pregnancy, and was on and off bedrest after having some issues earlier on. Little did I know the journey that was awaiting us with a premmie baby - it was both life changing and eye opening. Once my little princess was born, I realised how little I knew about prematurity and other conditions that can land a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) - and how widespread it actually is. But to be honest, if you have a pretty straightforward pregnancy and don’t know anyone who openly discusses having a premature or sick baby, you probably wouldn’t hear much about it. Even after being admitted to hospital multiple times throughout my pregnancy, I was so naive in thinking it would all be fine - until the evening she was actually born at a teeny tiny 704 grams at 27 weeks and 4 days. Not only had I never heard of a baby being born so early and so little, I also never knew that they could survive and thrive, with the help of some very, very dedicated nurses, doctors and support workers. It kind of blew my mind that in my 31 years of life, and 2 healthy babies, that I’d never even heard of a NICU - which was to become my home with my daughter for 3 months as she grew big and strong enough to come home. In Neonatal November, you’ll hopefully see lots of new information from different accounts raising awareness - it’s not just about premature babies, as full term babies can be admitted to the NICU for various reasons as well. You never know when the information might come in handy 💜💜💜” • Repost from @octoprem • • • • • • #preemie #preemies #prembaby #colourfulbeginnings #beautiful #prematurebaby #raisingawareness #prematureawareness #prematurityawareness #babyboy #baby #babies #amazing #encouragement #encouraging #support #strength #thankyou #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #babygirl #nicugraduate #progress #proudmom #successstory #preemiepower #preemiestrong #worldprematurityday #worldprematuritymonth
Rp from @marchofdimesprz Mrs. Stacey Stewart, President/March of Dimes “I graduated as the valedictorian of Avondale High School in 1991. Like most Georgia valedictorians, I was invited to meet the Governor of Georgia at the #GAGov mansion. It was a big deal for my family. That morning, I got up and put on my Sunday best. My parents and I boarded the MARTA bus with the domestic workers and mechanics who, like us, could not afford a car. We took MARTA all the way from Dekalb to Buckhead, got off at West Paces Ferry Road, and walked up the long driveway to the big black gates around the property. When we got to the guard station, the guard looked at my parents, then he looked at me, and he said, “This is a private event, you don’t belong here.” He looked over our shoulder at the MARTA bus driving away and he told himself a story about who would be on that bus – and in his story, they did not belong in the Governor’s mansion. My parents pushed back, and I got in. But looking back on that day, I don’t remember meeting the Governor of Georgia. I don’t even remember celebrating my accomplishments with valedictorians from 159 counties and 180 school districts. The only thing I remember is a man blocking the gates of the most powerful place in Georgia, telling me that I did not belong. With your help, on November 6th, we will open those gates wide and we will change the face of leadership in Georgia. But I need your vote on Tuesday and your volunteer shifts this weekend to get us there: bit.ly/GOTVGA (Link in bio)” #midterms #election #congress #candidates #advocacy #maternalhealth #pregnant #mom #baby #health #vote #electionday #preemies #marchofdimes #maternalhealth #infantmortality

• • This week I received a package in the mail that brought me to tears ...in a good way. • A woman I don’t know sent me a box 📦 • Filled with 25 separate newborn onesies • A beautiful and generous soul • How did she find me? • I am a NICU Mama • And for the first time, this upcoming Holiday season, together with your help, I will be donating and distributing 25 Holiday hamper gifts to 25 new Mamas who find themselves with newborns in the NICU at North York General Hospital 🏥 • Some weeks back I posted across a variety of different Mama groups and boards and to-date the response has been overwhelming • The box of newborn onesies was from a fellow Mama in Ottawa • I’m still looking for items to place inside the cooler bags that will also serve as great transport for pumped breast milk between home and the NICU, each day for these Mamas • Bags are $25 each and we need 5 more to be donated for this project to come to life • If you’d like to get involved, please PM me, or post a message • The power of our communities is best demonstrated by the compassion and actions of each of our individual members • If you are not able to contribute, please feel free to pass this note along to your own network • Thank you!

Remember Remember the 3rd of November... Today we took the boys to IKEA 🤪 it was a risk but they did so good, after a rocky start of much crying from Henry in the end he embraced the wonder of IKEA and was taking everything in, he really seemed to like it. We have a theory that he gets so upset every time he goes in the car seat as he thinks he's off to the hospital for another procedure or scary appointment which to be fair to him is usually the case so we are now going to try to match the horrible appointments with fun outings so today's was a trip to IKEA and then to River Dart Country Park for fireworks. It wasn't the best weather so it meant the boys were covered in a rain cover in the pram which did hinder their enjoyment but I think the light up toys from Grandma Nicola were a highlight especially for Percy. The boys were avidly watching the fireworks but I think the noise might have been a tad too much for Henry and he got a bit upset towards the end but overall it was certainly a success 😊 and now they are finally asleep so it's mulled wine time for us #tttssurvivors #nicugraduates #notyourbasickid #bonfirenight #fireworks #firstfireworknight #twins #twinsofinstagram #identicaltwins #identicaltwinboys #firsttriptoikea #ikea #riverdartcountrypark #mcdatwins #preemies #preemietwins #twinboys #brothers #cribstar_official #cribstarofficial

This is my daughter she was born feb 28 2016 at 26+2. She came for no reason at all! We spent 14 weeks In hospital between NICU and SCN. She’s now nearly 3 and you wouldn’t even know she was a prem. Born in Alice springs NT and got sent to Flinders Med Centre 12 hours after she was born. So we spent 4 hours on a plane to get to Adelaide. The last photo is a photo of her in nov 2017 with a photo of her 4 days after she was born, this was taken for prem awareness month last year by a local photographer here in Alice springs. #nicugrad #preemiemom #preemiebaby #preemiepower #babygirl #nicumom #family #miraclebaby #nicubaby #babyboy #love #nicuawareness #nicustrong #cute #preemieprincess #newborn #preemiemom #nicudad #prematurebaby #preemie #preemies #micropreemie #prematurityawareness #prematurityawarenessmonth

1 day early! Tomorrow we celebrate the girls actual due date 🙌🏻 November 4th! They were scheduled to come October 24th at 38 Weeks 3 Days. But other plans were made. They joined us September 28th at 34 Weeks 5 Days. The girls are thriving & gaining! They are starting to show more of their personalities. Gemma is calm & relaxed & moves like a baby sloth. She will let you know when she is upset. That doesn’t happen often. Blakely is small & feisty often times screaming like its her job when she wants to eat lol 😂 but she loves to snuggle & be held. As of last Monday the girls weighed 7lbs 10oz & 6lbs 3oz 🌈🌈 #Twins #DoubleRainbow #RainbowBabies #NICU #Preemies #DueDate #Celebrate #Girls #GemmaAmelia #BlakelyFiona #GeringGirls #LÍLLÉbaby @lillebaby #Rainbows Thank you Kourtney for these awesome onesies for the girls. I have been patiently waiting for them to be able to wear them.
Every year 1 in 10 babies are born prematurely for a multitude of reasons. These babies face an uphill battle from birth in order to attain the things that most babies are born knowing how to do. Tell us your story in the comments- How did advancements in the medical field help your baby survive and thrive? Let’s help raise awareness for those who might not understand the importance in the new technologies that help these babies have positive outcomes! #nicugrad #preemiemom #preemiebaby #preemiepower #babygirl #nicumom #family #miraclebaby #nicubaby #babyboy #love #nicuawareness #nicustrong #cute #preemieprincess #newborn #preemiemom #nicudad #prematurebaby #preemie #triplets #preemies #micropreemie #prematurityawareness #prematurityawarenessmonth

💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 DAY 3 OF PREMATURITY AWARENESS MONTH 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 Prematurity strikes without prejudice It is so unpredictable It’s frustrating It comes so suddenly It attacks without warning sometimes It is scary, unimaginable but real. Prematurity means we get to see our little ones earlier than expected, it gives lives early but it unfortunately can also take away lives unexpectedly. Above all, Prematurity is the leading cause of death in children under five around the worldand here in the UK. What are your stories about prematurity? Were you born or do you know anyone who was born premature? Do you know anyone who lost a baby through premature birth? • Repost from @every_little_life_matters • • • #preemie #preemies #prembaby #colourfulbeginnings #beautiful #prematurebaby #raisingawareness #prematureawareness #prematurityawareness #babyboy #baby #babies #amazing #encouragement #encouraging #support #strength #thankyou #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #babygirl #nicugraduate #progress #proudmom #successstory #growingstrong #inspiration #worldprematuritymonth #worldprematurityday
“In honor of prematurity awareness month. Last year on November 10th my water broke at 27 weeks 3 days. I was rushed to hospital and given fluids, a med to stop labour and steroids for her lungs. Then transferred to a hospital with a high level NICU. I received 24 hours of magnesium sulfate(to protect her brain and maybe stop labour). There we hung out for 7 days. On November 17th She was 28 weeks 3 days. Just before 3pm I felt my first contraction. Quickly they realized labour wasn't stopping. At 4pm Aurelia was born naturally. 2lbs9oz 14.8inches long. Labour was so quick she breathed in fluid, she didn't cry and needed to be resuscitated by the NICU team. I didn't see her for hours. Finally she was stable. She had central lines( lines into her umbilical cord), was on cipap. She was on room air but a machine pushed air in through at a certain pressure and rate. A picc line was placed as she was on antibiotics for suspected infection. At 3 days old and she moved to regular cpap. It was that day I finally held her. We then rode the rollercoaster that is the NICU. She had no brain bleeds, no PDAs. Just before Christmas she was transferred to my home hospital after trialing off CPAP successfully at 33.5 weeks. However shortly after that she became sick and weak, needed oxygen for the first time and was put back on cpap at 28 % oxygen and she had iv antibiotics. She was swollen and all I could do was stare through the isolate at her. She had a seizure during that time. It was scary. Finally at 34.5 weeks she came off cpap and oxygen for good. She was stable. Around 60 days in the hospital she came off monitors. It was then a matter of learning to eat. Her biggest struggle from prematurity. At 78 days old, 39 weeks 4 days gestation she finally came home. So far her only issue from prematurity is GERD. In 2 weeks on none other than Infant Prematurity awareness day my girl turns 1! • Thank you @c.mother.of.wildlings for sharing • • • • • #preemie #preemies #prembaby #colourfulbeginnings #beautiful #prematurebaby #raisingawareness #prematureawareness #prematurityawareness #babyboy #baby #babies #amazing #encouragement #encouraging #support #strength #thankyou #nicu
“November is Prematurity Awareness Month!! Having a child in the NICU is hard, it comes with tough decisions, a lot of tears, sacrifices & your strength tested! Most families smile & do their best to stay positive for their babies & bring love, hope, & encouragement when they visit because that’s what their baby needs to keep fighting. It’s an emotional roller coaster. Trust Your Strength will continue to create awareness, promote self care, and help to provide hope, support, financial assistance to Mommas of NICU Miracles!

This was the first moment I had with my son, Adam. It had been 3hrs since birth, but it felt like forever. The transport team brought him to my room for a 5min visit before he was transported to another hospital. All I knew was that I wanted to be with him. So I did everything I needed to in order to be discharged within another 3hrs. Son, mommy was on her way... It still amazes me that this was over two 年前發佈.

“I’ve never been too fond of sharing my personal experiences on social media, but if there’s anything I learned this past year is that sharing your experiences is as important as surviving them! Especially when it’s an experience not many people can relate to...but that is what makes this worth sharing. Someday, someone somewhere will read this and it’ll warm their heart to find a story to inspire their faith. Today is a day I will cherish every year of my life. It is not your typical celebration but it marks the 145 days I anxiously waited for... Esme’s Homecoming! Born at 28 weeks by emergency C-section, weighing 1lb 10oz, IUGR. Admitted to the NICU, June 10, 2017. Esme fought for her life for the next 5 months...on a ventilator, intubated for 10 weeks that eventually caused scar tissue on her vocal cords, needed multiple blood transfusions and medications to control bilirubin levels, diagnosed with mild COPD, C-Pap machines, severe acid reflux, aspiration of liquids, umbilical and inguinal hernias; followed by surgery for a nissen fundoplication, gastrostomy tube, and hernia repairs. After overcoming all of this, one beautiful sunny Thursday morning, I got a phone call from the hospital that I could finally bring my baby home that afternoon. I could still remember the tears and overflow of emotions coming over me. This day will always be a gift... A gift that signifies my daughter’s strength and resilience, the power of faith, and God’s mercy. I thank God every day for this little miracle. Photos were Homecoming queen inspired! 👑 Queen Esme Luna 🙏🏼💜 -Please watch Esme’s story in my IG highlights.” • Thank you @deny14 for sharing • • • • • • #preemie #preemies #prembaby #colourfulbeginnings #beautiful #prematurebaby #raisingawareness #prematureawareness #prematurityawareness #babyboy #baby #babies #amazing #encouragement #encouraging #support #strength #thankyou #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #babygirl #nicugraduate #progress #proudmom #successstory #worldprematuritymonth #worldprematurityday #preemiepower #homecoming

No one should ever have to go through this, but this is the reality for most if not all preemie parents. Help us in raising more awareness of premature birth, let us get the word out there. • Premature birth is real and it can happen to anyone. Most preemie parents never planned for it to happen to them but it did. Join us at our WPD event on the 17th of November (ticket deets in bio), as we come together and join forces in raising awareness, supporting families who’s been through it, educating the general public, getting the word out there, celebrating our little heroes and remembering the babies who gained their angel wings too soon. • Repost from @marchofdimes • “This November, we must talk about premature birth, about the grief that hardens us and the love that changes us, so that no mother holding her baby in the NICU today will ever have to carry her burden alone." - Emily Collins, March of Dimes MOMentum Fellow.” • • • • • • #preemie #preemies #prembaby #colourfulbeginnings #beautiful #prematurebaby #raisingawareness #prematureawareness #prematurityawareness #babyboy #baby #babies #amazing #encouragement #encouraging #support #strength #thankyou #nicu #nicubaby #nicugrad #babygirl #nicugraduate #progress #proudmom #preemiepower #joiningforces #supporting #educating #worldprematuritymonth

My Son came @ 25weeks weighing 1lb 14oz on July 1st 2018, and he was literally my miracle baby!! I wasn’t aware I was with child at all, I found out I was pregnant the moment I was in labor!! I went to the emergency room thinking I had a bad UTI, and they told me I was actually in labor (7cm dilated). Since birth we have been in 2 different NICUs. Currently we are at the Stanford NICU ICU where we came on sept 28th to close his PDA unfortunately a main artery brushed during surgery and there was no blood flow to his leg. We were told they would have to amputate his leg. Surgery was scheduled for this past Tuesday, but we wound up getting great news, and found out that there was no need for amputation!! He is 4months as of yesterday ARIEL SANTANA 🦖💙👦🏽 oursupero⚡️ #preemiemom #preemiebaby #preemiepower #babygirl #nicumom #family #miraclebaby #nicubaby #babyboy #love #nicuawareness #nicustrong #cute #preemieprincess #newborn #preemiemom #nicudad #prematurebaby #preemie #preemies #micropreemie
I have a 25 weeker boy .. this picture was on the day we were going to be discharged from the NICU after 203 Days of stay..from all of the days spent in the NICU,these last days were most tiring because there was so much training and learning going on.. he was coming home on TPN and g button and tons of medications.. He is 20 months chronological now.. he still has TPN but only in the night.. He is a bundle of energy, does not like to sit still even for a minute but very smart :) I am so grateful for him and the entire staff in the hospital for helping us through our tough journey. #preemiemom #preemiebaby #preemiepower #babygirl #nicumom #family #miraclebaby #nicubaby #babyboy #love #nicuawareness #nicustrong #cute #preemieprincess #newborn #preemiemom #nicudad #prematurebaby #preemie #preemies #micropreemie
