"I looked at my fiancé and said, ‘It’s bad, isn’t it?’ and he said, ‘Yeah, it’s bad."
"It was heartbreaking. My three sisters had no problems in their pregnancies. They would announce their pregnancies to the family and nine months later walk out of the hospital with their babies in their arms."
"It took several more weeks of PT before I could be considered fully independent to care for my baby. . . But it was a dream come true to be walking and carrying my newborn, finally."
"I'm so much happier. The surgery provided me with exactly what I wanted, to close one chapter and move on to the next — enjoying my life and the future with my son."
“I did my research and felt really good about where we were delivering. This was the only level III NICU I felt could care for our baby."
"Having a birth plan gave me and my husband the opportunity to think about choices we didn’t even realize were things we cared about. And with me being such a planner, it was a nice gift to not only have a little more sense of knowing what to expect, but also to know that our medical team would do everything they could to follow our wishes and give us the experience we wanted."
"We had exceptional care at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer. It was a whole team effort, between the doctors, nurses and respiratory therapists—it’s like an orchestra in the NICU."
"When my baby was diagnosed with spina bifida, the Fetal Care Center at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies gave me hope. Working together, like a symphony, they gave my unborn baby the best chance for a healthy future. It’s amazing that they could perform surgery on a baby, still in the womb, and basically change her entire life."
"We sat there together and had a beautiful view of downtown with a gorgeous meal. They took our son to the nursery to take care of him, and it was like we forgot where we were."
"When the team at the Fetal Care Center suggested fetal surgery as an option to treat spina bifida — explaining both the benefits and risks — I said yes, that’s what I need to do. I’ve never had such great care as I did at the Fetal Care Center."
"After learning she was a candidate for in utero surgery, it didn’t take long to decide to go ahead with the procedure. "
"Further tests showed that my baby daughter, Mia, had spina bifida. Doctors at the Fetal Care Center offered me the option of in utero surgery for better outcomes for my baby."
"I was six weeks from my due date, when suddenly things got scary. I became gravely ill and underwent an emergency C-section. The team at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit took care of everything with skill and compassion, and I knew I was in good hands. After a month in the NICU and two follow-up surgeries, my baby boy Landis was on his way to a normal, healthy life."
