|Saint Elizabeth Was There for Us|
Our Birth Story by Alison Morrow
Alison and Brian Morrow had triplet boys, Teddy, Hank and Max, born at 29 weeks.
Alison shares her story…
All of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NNPs) were so great to work with! I remember Max was getting a new PICC line put in one night and my husband couldn't sleep because he was so worried about it. He called the NICU and the NNP talked him through the procedure again. She called back afterwards with updates which helped him feel good about the situation. It was so nice to have an NNP available 24/7 if we had questions or concerns.
The Physicians, NNPs and Nurses were so helpful in our transition to home. We were given a large book about the NICU so that we could review procedures and what we had talked about. I did bounce a lot of ideas and questions off of two of the nurses in the NICU who also had multiples and one nurse who had triplet grandchildren. They helped me figure out a routine to follow when I got home. The face-to-face support and education that happened over the months that the boys were there helped us to feel confident taking them home.
Our household is busy; each stage brings its own challenges, but we have it figured out and manage pretty well. We have been very blessed as they are all doing great! They are into everything and are very busy. They are all on the growth charts for height, weight and head circumference. And they are healthy and doing well developmentally.
Saint Elizabeth has top-notch providers and a wonderful NICU that I would recommend to anyone! We can't say enough about the care our boys received at Saint Elizabeth.
