The Thompson Family

To learn more about the Thompsons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chyqLRPNvUU After 4 years of trying to have children and experiencing a number of challenges, Shaun and Lauren were beyond happy to learn they were expecting twins. As excited as they were, their biggest concern at that time was Lauren’s small frame and how challenging it would be for her to carry twins to full term, however their medical team made them feel comforted by monitoring Lauren’s progress, setting up scheduled doctor visits, and educating them on best health practices for Lauren and her babies. Even with following all the medical advice given, they experienced preterm labor. At nearly 7 months into the pregnancy, Lauren went into labor and their twin boys came into the world. Zad was born at 2lbs 5ozs & Zeke was born at 2lbs 6ozs. They were about the length of the fork you might have used to eat some fruit this morning, or the spoon you might have used to eat yogurt this morning. Everyone expects babies to be small as a newborns, but this was truly an experience they NEVER could have anticipated. Zad was in the NICU for three months, while Zeke took a couple of weeks longer. During that time, they witnessed firsthand the fears that a parent of a preemie can go through; alarms going off every 5 minutes, their child not breathing, and wondering would they will ever live a normal life. Through the entire ride of highs and lows, they never gave up, and most importantly the medical team never gave up. During their time in the NICU, they learned about March of Dimes and its efforts to help fund research that has gone into the development of the technology that helped Zad & Zeke survive. They want to help support the March of Dimes and its mission of leading the fight for healthy moms and strong babies. The Thompson Family is looking forward to sharing their story as the 2019 March for Babies Ambassador Family.
