national prematurity day


Today is National Prematurity Awareness Day.

Exactly 6 months and 1 day my twins Fyodor & Dorian were born by emergency c-section due to ttts at 32 weeks gestation. Dorian’s heart was straining and the muscles in his heart hardening.

They spent 5 weeks 1 day in the NICU at UCSF children’s medical and I in a The Ronald McDonald house in SF. Leaving the hospital without the twins was hard but knowing I would eventually take them home gave me strength.

They are strong healthy boys and are growing fast and well.

Hugs to all the moms that have go through this 💕
