STORIES FROM FAMILIES
MEET THE KANELLAKES
They had a long road the pregnancy—but after their second IVF, Dana and Chris were expecting twins. Then, at 20 weeks, Dana's cervix was shortening and doctors weren't sure she'd be able to keep the babies in.
MEET THE RAQIBS
Mekka and Mukhtar were beyond excited being pregnant with twin boys. Everything went smoothly until Mekka began to feel pain and couldn't walk. Nasir and Said were born 23 weeks and given a 10% chance survival rate.
MEET THE SPINAS
Tiffany's water broke at just 23 weeks. Then everything happened fast and unexpectedly—her daughter Bria's umbilical cord was prolapsed resulting in an emergency birth and 213 days in the NICU fighting to stay alive.
