The Auger Family

Stacey & Justin Auger did everything right. Since it was their first pregnancy, she followed her doctors advice, took care of herself, ate well, and went to all her prenatal care appointments. By all accounts it was a uneventful pregnancy. Seven months into the pregnancy it all changed. One day, while at work, she went into premature labor and gave birth three long days later. Evan was born 8 weeks early on April 8, 2009. The next 19 days were a blur of wires & cords, beeping machines, bright lights plastic incubators, and the constant sound of the NICU doors opening and closing. After the longest 3 weeks of their life, Evan came home on May 4th. In the summer of 2010, they became pregnant with Joshua. Now deemed a “high risk” pregnancy, it wasn’t until after she passed 32 weeks gestation that she was able to relax and enjoy her pregnancy. Today, Evan is a thriving, happy, smart ten year old because of the talented NICU team at UMass and the scientific advances funded by March of Dimes.
