The Baez Family

In 2017, Taleah and Gabriel were looking forward to starting their family with the birth of triplets. Three months before their due date, during a routine prenatal visit, Taleah was admitted to the hospital and put on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy so that doctors could closely monitor the triplet's growth and movement. Two weeks later, it was decided that an immediate delivery was necessary for the sake of all three babies. Taleah was only 30 weeks pregnant when she delivered Gabriella, Esperanza and Sylvia by emergency C-section. Soon after, Sylvia developed necrotizing enterocolitis, a condition that attacks the small intestines of some premature babies. She died when she was only two weeks old. Gabriella and Esperanza spent several more weeks receiving care in the NICU before going home with Taleah and Gabriel. A year later, their little brother, Gabriel Jr., also spent some time in the NICU before joining their family at home. “We are honored to serve as the North Jersey ambassador family," said Taleah Baez, "our family is so grateful for the opportunity to spread awareness and raise funds to assist the March of Dimes with their research and advocacy efforts dealing with premature births and preventing infant deaths." Taleah and her family will share their story this spring at the Meadowlands March for Babies where they will be walking with friends and family.
