After several weeks of bedrest, Audra and Steven Currier’s daughter was born five weeks early. Devyn’s life began in a Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Devyn was born on May 31, 2014 weighing 4 pounds and 14 ounces. Immediately after being delivered by C-section, she was
whisked away by the nurses with blood on her brain, pneumonia, two collapsed lungs and a hole in her heart. Staying in a NICU is a
terrifying experience for new parents. Once your baby is stabilized, it is a constant up and down filled with monitors, procedures and
tests while parents anxiously await the day they can leave the hospital with their baby. For the Currier Family, it was five weeks later
on July 4 when their little fire cracker, Devyn, came home!
Today, Devyn is a happy, smart, funny, compassionate child with no complications.
The Currier family is grateful to March of Dimes research that helped save their child’s life.
