When Emma was born she was 1 pound, 4 ounces. My water had broke a couple days before my
23 week mark. You know, you’ve heard of the NICU, you’ve
heard of ‘preemie babies’, but you don’t realize what it’s like until
you’re put in that position. She went straight to the NICU at Hillcrest
Medical Center. I really appreciated it because I didn’t know
if she would make it or not if they didn’t. The NICU team at Hillcrest Medical Center
were there for me and my family. We were very, very lucky.
