The Mason Family

Olivia was born on January 6th 2023. Just 4 days after my water broke. On the afternoon of January 2, 2023, we drove to Norton Women and Children’s of Dutchman where they did a test to show if my water had fully ruptured. It had! We were told that we would be staying at the hospital on bed rest to keep the baby in as long as possible. On January 6, 2023, I went into labor, and Olivia was born. At 27 weeks, 3 days, she weighed 2lbs, 6oz. Olivia would spend the next 75 days in the NICU growing stronger each day. Olivia celebrated her first birthday this past January 6th. She loves her Dada and waving goodbye. Clapping “yay” and rolling over are some of the things she is able to do because of the advances in medicine today. These advances are possible because of the research, education and resources funded by the March of Dimes. Olivia would not be here with us today if not for the March of Dimes and the funding for research, education, and advocacy they provide.
