Mias Story

On August 16, 2017 my husband and I heard the news that no expectant parents want to hear. There was something wrong with Mia’s growth and the doctors recommended terminating my pregnancy. We went for a second opinion at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital where they did a number of different tests and found that my placenta had stopped providing nutrients to Mia. I was immediately hospitalized for several weeks so that they could monitor Mia. Mia’s heart rate started to drop about 48 hours before she wound up being born. These hours were terrifying and we felt helpless. No parents should have to endure what we did over this time. On September 30, 2017 we were told that they would have to perform an emergency caesarean section. At this point Mia only weighed 480 grams, which is just shy of 1 pound, and had a 10% chance of survival, but the doctors said it would be safer to try to let her grow outside of the womb. The days following her birth were critical to her survival and we felt like we were on an emotional roller coaster, but we knew that she had the best medical team on her side. Mia spent 6 months in the NICU where she had countless blood tests, needles, medications, blood transfusions, a couple of crashes, 2 surgeries, and too many more setbacks to list. After the NICU Mia spent 2 months in a rehabilitation center to help her achieve the oxygen level she needed to come home. The day she was able to come home was the best day ever. Today she is thriving and is a happy, loving and silly 4-year-old.
