Josiah arrived in GBMC's NICU at 25 weeks, weighing just 1 pound, 7 ounces. He had many ups and downs during his stay, but mom, Haidy, stayed positive.
"I didn't know about this world. I didn’t even know this unit existed," she said. But now that she has had to use it, she is incredibly grateful to the staff who explain everything to her, take care of her child when she isn't there.
And for the nurses in the NICU, it is just as rewarding for them to be able to touch families lives on a daily basis. They recognize the importance of what they bring to each family's experience.
Josiah is one of more than approximately 400 babies that come through GBMC's NICU each year. Help support the start of their lives at our 29th annual Father's Day 5K.
With 12 rooms in the NICU, there is always equipment that needs updating, new technologies to incorporate and resources critical for these more fragile babies, who require 24/7 care. Your support can help us provide these resources.
