#tb to our first time together with our daddy. Did you know mommy couldn’t come see us because she was in recovery and we were in NICU so daddy stayed with us the whole time. Having daddy there made everything better. #mackandmiller #brydgestwins #twindad #daddy #twins #twinboys #tbt #twinsofinstagram #instatwins #babiesofinstagram #babies #twinsandmultiples #family #love #sweetness #togetherforever #ngtube #nicu #preemies #bestfeelingever #dad #twinning

Am I right??
I realized I haven’t been detailed about what I’m doing so... I was born at 27 weeks, weighing only 2 lbs 12 oz.  The first two months of my life were spent in the Duke Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Now that I'm older, I want to give back. I'm raising funds to build a book cart and fill it with books for the babies and their families in the Duke NICU.  Many of the babies' families spend hours a day in the NICU for weeks and months. Reading can help parents bond with their newborns. I’m also doing a second project to celebrate NICU Graduation Day. Finally being able to go home is a big deal and I want to help celebrate this special day. I want to create onesies that say “NICU Grad”, provide graduation certificates, and build a photo booth to commemorate this big moment! 💙

Double vision👶🏽👶🏽❤️❤️
Mini one would have been 6 months old today. I cannot believe a half year has already passed since we went in to hospital worried because she had stopped moving and we met this luscious hairy bundle of joy. She is a true gift! #noajoy
Day 89 ... 36 days until the twins’ due date! Keeley and Kambry had good nights and no spells since Tuesday night. No changes today on anything... just keep growing. The girls will have their labs and x rays tomorrow which will tell us if they can have their oxygen with the NAVA weened. Our goal is still to get to RAM all in Keeley and Kambry’s time and what they need. If they aren’t ready, they will get more time to grow. Less is obviously more so we pray for the ability to do some weening tomorrow. The girls will be 35 weeks tomorrow and 13 weeks old Saturday... 3 months on Sunday!! Our big check will be next Friday when the girls turn 36 weeks! Head ultrasounds, echos & another ROP screening next week! Keep praying! These photos are from yesterday comparing hand sizes. Remember when I showed a picture of Kambry’s hand next to a quarter?? Her hand is now double the size. I took a photo with Kollins’ hands to show size difference to hers 💗💗💗 #keeleyandkambrysmiracle #fightliketheewoldttwins #onedayatatime #micropreemies #22weeks #tttsawareness #tiny #tinybutmighty #tinyhands #baby #twins #identicaltwins #nicu #universityofiowa
Our Valentines baby is 1 week old today! Still in the NICU but she is doing great! @kendall_softball12 wanted her in her Next Level onsie!!! #valentinesbaby #nicu #1weekoldtoday
I never share stuff like this on here. I like to keep some things for myself, but the spirit is moving today🙌🏽 • I get tired of people telling others about impossibilities. What someone else can’t do. I look at my kids daily and feel inspired. Preston and Parker were born at 32 weeks! 4lbs and 2lbs. And Parker the 2lber did not need oxygen! 🗣I repeat...this boy was breathing on his own out of the womb. Furthermore, they are healthy and happy. No developmental delays...as a matter of fact, advanced for their age. • People please stop projecting negativity in other people’s lives. And people stop listening to the negativity! • POSITIVE VIBES BREED MORE POSITIVE VIBES ~ 💛Pilar • . . . . #tbt #prestonandparker #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinboys #twins #twinbrothers #twinmom #nicu #nicumom #marchofdimes #preemie #baby #newborn #mother #motherhood #love #positivevibes #inspiration #peace #light
I brought these outfits for my boys to wear at Xmas and was trying to save them for when jadyn gets home because that would of been best present ever but we haven’t got date so I let gene wear it today for tester...
急遽出産!! . . 管理入院からの緊急帝王切開で、無事男の子を出産しました!35週での早産で、筋腫も大きかったため、先生からは「ここ1〜2年で一番大変な帝王切開手術だった」と言われましたw 2102グラムと少し小さいけど、体は元気で安心。でも低体重と週数が早いので、NICUでしばらく入院です。 一ヶ月も早い出産で準備がまだ出来ていなかったので、今のうちに色々揃えたりしつつ、3時間おきに搾乳しながら、NICUに通います。体力持つかな・・・ . . . #早産 #35w #nicu #高齢出産 #帝王切開 #子宮筋腫 #3月生まれのはずが #2月生まれ #息子可愛い
#tbt . . Throwback to just a few months ago, when I got this job offer and was saying goodbye to this amazing city that I would soon see again! My mom has been by my side through the ups and downs in life and I appreciate her so much! We got a lot accomplished on that short stay, and here I am now . . Tonight it is real. It’s been real the past few weeks and acclimating to this hospital and this city has been worth all of the risk it took to make it here! Tonight, I’m a NICU nurse. Tonight I prove that passion can take you so much farther than you could ever imagine . . Thank you everyone who supported me, and continues to support me. I love you. #faith #moments #nicunurse #imdoingthis #thisisreal #flgirlinmo #friendships #family #memories #challenges #dreams #goals #respect #appreciate #NICU #children #love #loveyourself #believeinyourself
This boy has come a long way in 8 weeks, from not breathing for himself and be able to feed to looking like a big boy in 60 days 💪🥊❤️ I knew my boys were fighters but they have shown me so much strength and gave me so much strength too Good boy Gene and thank you for being strong for mum and dad ❤️

Join us today for Thursday Thanks for a time of reflecting on the goodness of God through the word and prayer to remind us to have a heart of thanksgiving toward our Father regardless of what we’re walking through, or encountering. _ Meet us live here, or on the My Predestined One Facebook page at 1@PM CST! #MyPredestinedOne #ThursdayThanks
IC! Op de NICU liggen niet alleen premature baby's. Ook voldragen zieke kinderen komen bij ons. Deze plek is ingericht voor een "grotere" baby die zuurstoftekort (asfyctie) heeft gehad bij de geboorte. Deze baby's worden 72 uur gekoeld, waardoor je verdere hersenschade voorkomt. Er staat een coolapparaat achter het bedje. Het kind (in dit geval een pop) ligt in een coolpakje. Verder staat er een No apparaat opgebouwd en een CFM. Het kind heeft een CAD en verschillende (invasieve ) lijnen. #nicu #nicunurses #isala #cooling #criticool #no #printernox #asfyctie #cfm #cvl #nvl #pal #nal #cfm #intensievezorg #ikzorg
So this was my first and to date only birth experience. After 22 hours in labor, I got to glimpse my child for literally 1 second before he was wisked away to the NICU. Leaving me alone in the birthing room as everyone, but me, got to take turns going to see him. There was no skin to skin. No nursing. No bonding. It was as cold an experience for both Clayton and myself as anyone could imagine. The next two months, were spent in a NICU. Now I am trying to figure out how I want to handle this next birth experience. Do I want our time at the hospital to be private for us or would we rather privacy once we get home? When does Clayton meet her and where? There are so many things that will always be beyond my control, but I learned years ago to plan for what I can in order to soothe my anxiety. All the while knowing and accepting those plans may change. This is what works for me. Today in musing about my thoughts and what to do, I was told it was stupid. People do things “this” way and if I don’t that’s just stupid. 😳 Let me tell you what is “stupid”...other people putting their wants ahead of a family’s needs. What we decide we need this birth experience to be for us does not cause anyone harm. So let me leave you with this...NO ONE gets to tell you what is the right thing for your family. That decision belongs to you. Other people not getting their way, does not make you disrespectful or inconsiderate. Standing up for yourself does not make you rude or aggressive. Those are lies people tell to make you feel bad or to make themselves feel better. You can be KIND, RESPECTFUL, FIRM and ASSERTIVE all at the same time. If people don’t get that, the problem is them, not you. You get to choose what is right and healthiest for you. It isn’t about what “everybody does”. It’s about what you need. And if others don’t get that, then you don’t need them. Good, kind people will always be patient with you and understand your decisions are for a reason and in no way made with ill intent. And even if they think it is different, they will recognize it is your choice and you have your reasons. And they will respect your choice!!! Don’t be scared to set boundaries ❤️.
Throwback Thursday: Phoenix Rose & her best playmate, Dad 🥰💖😍! Can't believe she'll be 3 in less than a month 😘.
Some of you warriors are running on empty. You didn’t have the mother - or maybe the father that you needed when you were young.

Nick’s story - Part 1 ⁣ ⁣ I don’t even have a picture... ⁣ ⁣ Ever have something unexpected happen and the weight of it doesn’t hit you until much later? ⁣ ⁣ When Nickolas was born everything was a whirlwind (post an amazing induced labor...I swear I’m the only weirdo who has amazing inductions.) ⁣ ⁣ Once he was delivered, they placed him on my chest immediately and I could do nothing but say “Hi baby!” I don’t even think I knew his gender yet. ⁣ ⁣ It didn’t take but a few moments for them to whisk him away from me and I could hear the commotion as they called for the respiratory team. ⁣ ⁣ I wasn’t scared because they’d called respiratory for 2 of my other children as well... a little suctioning later and all was well. ⁣ ⁣ With Nick it was different, I could hear the commotion and them working on him (but who can focus when delivering a placenta and having your nether regions stitched up?) but he never perked up and cried. Grunt, yes, but no crying... ⁣ ⁣ Before I knew it he was swaddled and given to me to hold for a few short moments before he was whisked up to the NICU. ⁣ ⁣ I never even thought to take a picture... ⁣ ⁣ It was eerie spending those first hours in the delivery room alone... without my baby... ⁣ ⁣ It wouldn’t be until weeks later I began to feel the weight of these hours and their impact on me...⁣ ⁣ #nickolasjoseph #baby4 #nicksstory #labor #delivery #birth #birthstory #birthtrauma #pregnancy #postpartum #nicu #induction #postpartumdepression #postpartumanxiety #pregnancy #momlife #motherhood #mom #momsofinstagram #tribeofmothers #community #dontforgetdads #redefinealpha #findyouralpha #alphamom @alphasworn_ceo @ms.j.fox @nicole_alphanutrition @shanelle_cfts @jasonphillips_in3 @chasitysnowden_in3
Are you looking to get certified in Neonatal Nursing? As a bedside nurse, you have two options available - either Low Risk Neonatal or Neonatal Intensive Care. • The National Certification Corporation (NCC) is the only certifying body for Low-Risk Neonatal Nursing, but you have the option to become certified as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse through either NCC or AACN Certification Corporation. There are differences in the exam content between the two, so be sure to check out their websites to determine which one is right for you. Also, if your employer will pay for or reimburse you for certification, be sure they will accept either one. • Certification through NCC will grant you the designation RNC-LRN or RNC-NIC (depending on which test you take), while certification through AACN Certification Corporation will grant you the designation CCRN. • For Advanced Practice Nurses, NCC is the only certifying body for Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NNP-BC), while AACN Certification Corporation is the only certifying body for Clinical Nurse Specialists (ACCNS-N). • Other options include certification in Neonatal-Pediatric Transport (C-NPT) through NCC, or as a Manager/Supervisor or Administrator through AACN Corporation (CCRN-K). For C-NPT, disciplines outside of nursing (Paramedics/EMTs, PAs, Physicians, or Respiratory Care Practitioners) may also sit for the exam. • OK, my head is spinning! What questions do you have for me? What would you like to see featured here? Don't forget to tag your friends and colleagues who are either already certified or who are interested in more information about how to become certified. With 36 years of Neonatal Intensive Care nursing in just about every role imaginable, I am a wealth of knowledge, and I am happy to share that knowledge with you! • • • #NICU #nurse #NICUNurse #NICUNursing #RN #NICURN #nurse #NICUCertification #certifiedNICUnurse #certifiedRN #certifiednurse #magnethospital #BSN #MSN #RegisteredNurse #neonatalnurse #neonatalnursing #nurseentrepreneur #nursesinbusiness #RNC #CCRN #NNP #NeonatalNursePractitioner #physicianassistant #paramedic #EMT #respiratorycarepractitioner #respiratorytherapist #neonatalICU #neonatology

Ok! Im a believer!🙌 #thursdaytipsandtricks What's worse than one baby with thrush? Yep, that's right..2 babies with thrush #twinmomlife 😳 . 🙊Thrush is super common in babies and is actually caused by the yeast Candida. It looks like white patches on the tongue and inner cheeks and is seldom harmful but it can cause discomfort if left untreated. . . *The typical Mr. Doc treatment is Nystatin which is made with a whole bunch of sugar. Guess what? Yeast & sugar have been dating for years and ❤each other 😒. So you're treating and feeding the yeast at the same time which is why it's effectiveness is really a hit and miss. . . ✨. My trick: A couple drops GSE mixed with equal parts of distilled water ( it must be diluted. Do Not Use full strength). Take a qtip and swap the tongue and inner cheeks twice a day. Symptoms should improve by day 3 but continue for a few days after its gone. It's very bitter but tolerable. Read below for more info and benefits.✨✨ 👇👇👇 . I definitely believe in the healing properties of nature for many of our common ailments...our bodies are from the earth and yes, the earth can heal. . We live in an age where doctors are quick to throw 💊at the slightest symptoms, and that's exactly what we treat... the symptoms and not the problem. As a mom of a #nicu baby I am definitely not against western medicine. I believe it has it's place just like everything else. If you have broken bones or your life is in immediate danger..please dont take a herb lol. Go to the hospital. . . But for non acute issues and chronic problems, I believe in trying natural 1st and working my way down from there. . LISTED BENEFITS *powerful antioxidant *natural antibiotic ( effective agains a wide variety of bacteria viruses) *kills Candida *treats UTI *treats IBS symptoms *relieves athlete's foot and. toenail fungus *helps eczema *petcare . . .#twinmomtips #mom #yourewelcomemom #grapefruitseedextract #thrushremedy #healthylifehappylife #ilovegrapefruit #nystatin #nutribiotic #itriedit #naturalhealing #immunesupport #healthycandles
【手術日決定しました🙌】 * 今日はいつもの週イチ外来受診ではなく 外科医の先生から手術の説明を聞くための 受診Dayでした︎☺︎ * #妊婦健診 を受けてる間は 里帰り前も里帰り先でも「うん、心臓問題ないね〜✨」 って言われていたのに、#出産 して#nicu 入って しばらくしてから「心臓に穴が空いています」と #心室中隔欠損症 を認められたすーちゃん。 しかもそれから日を追うごとに 「心房にも穴が空いています」 ↓ 「今は自然に塞がるのを待たずに、 1歳までに手術するお医者さんが多いよ」 ↓ 「肺にも負担がかかっているから 生後半年頃にはやるかもね」 ↓ 「#肺高血圧症 になってるから100日 待たずにやるかもしれない」 * と、どんどんどんどん コトが進んで 近いハナシになってしまい😅 結局来月、#生後4ヶ月 になった 3月29日にやることに決まりました🙌 * 最初に話を聞いた時には、 “手術せずに済むなら自然に塞がるのを待ちたい”と 思ってたけれど、#手術 を延ばせば延ばすほど すーちゃん自身が苦しいままであること、 手術をすれば治る病気であることを知ったら とにかくすーちゃんが元気に過ごせることが 1番だな、と前向きに捉えられるように😌 何より授乳量が沖縄戻ってガクンと減っちゃった (100~120飲めてたのが、50~80ぐらいに。 ひどい時は30mlしか飲まない時もあった) のが、早く戻って欲しい😭 体重ぜーーーんぜん増えない💦 * 開胸手術とか一旦心臓をとめて 人工心肺に切り換えるとか、 胸骨を切ってとか聞くとまだちょっと ビビったりはするんですけどね😳💦 でもメジャーな疾患というか、お医者さんも このテの手術は慣れてると言っていたので 少しは安心😇 説明もとっても丁寧で分かりやすかった✨ * 1ヶ月ぶりの予防接種フルコース&シナジス打って 鼻の粘膜検査するって棒突っ込まれて、 おうち帰ってからもママに綿棒浣腸されて、 今日はすーちゃんには散々な日だったようで 普段家でほぼほぼ泣かないのにギャン泣き パラダイスでした😅 おつかれすーちゃん💓 * おまけの1マイは、授乳後顔にぶつぶつ できてるー💦と思ったらわたしの授乳ブラに 顔当たったまま寝落ち飲みしてて 跡がついてただけだったやつ😂 授乳ブラってだいたいツルツルしてるけど まさかこんなことになるとは(笑) * #心房中隔欠損症 #心不全 #肺高血圧 #生後90日 #生後2ヶ月 もうすぐ#生後3ヶ月 #先天性心疾患 #心臓手術 #ダウン症 #ダウンちゃん #21トリソミー

‍ 🔺Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is the most common gastrointestinal emergency in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and is a leading cause of mortality among preterm and low birth weight infants. 🔺Pathogenesis is multifactorial with the combination of impaired intestinal perfusion, abnormal bacterial colonization, impaired gut barrier function, and an immature, overactive immune response leading to intestinal inflammation, ischemia, and eventual necrosis. 🔺Medical management includes bowel rest, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and supportive care. 🔺Surgical options include primary peritoneal drainage or laparotomy with bowel resection. ✏️Avery's diseases of the newborn, 2018 🔴#NICU link: https://t.me/joinchat/AAAAADwzGskR62Rl5FxCWA #Cross_border_neonatology #NEC #preterminfants #pretermbirth #infant #newborn #neonate #نوزاد #نوزاد_بیمار #نوزاد_نارس #ان_آی_سی_یو #پرستار_نوزادان #پره ‌مچوریتی #پرستاری #پرستار_نوزاد

Throw back Thursday 🎀 Born at 34 Weeks, Coming in strong at 4 lbs 💕
A Year Ago We Left Our Hearts In The Hospital 💔💔 We were discharged from the hospital and went home without the twins 😢. What made it more difficult was knowing the excitement of ‘moving out’ out of the hospital and bringing our first born HOME. Instead the twins needed some extra time in the hospital to get stronger before they could come home. 〰️ Not many understand the emotional toll that parents experience when it comes to leaving their baby in the NICU, but why would they if they don’t go through it. There is no manual for it, and not many people talk about it. For those days and weeks it felt like we were living on edge. One day could be great and then the next everything could change. Then on top of that monitoring and tracking two babies. The first few days were a blur. Our brains were constantly in learning mode, soaking up medical terms, what beeping tones indicated and numbers nonstop. There was no time to curl up in bed and be sad, especially with a two-year old at home. Nope, we were operating around the clock, going back and forth to the hospital, my wife during the day and me after work trying to create some sort of balance. 〰️ If any parents are experiencing the NICU for the first time and trying to process their new normal…being sad, afraid, anxious, stressed, unsure, just wanting your baby home, is normal. Just try and remember that they are in the best hands with the amazing NICU nurses and doctors who care for these babies and want them to go home when they are ready. If you are feeling any of these things or have any questions, feel free to reach out ♥️♥️ . . . . . #bambineandme #nicutwins #nicu #niculife #nicunurse #nicugraduate #nicudad #nicumom #nicumoms #nicumommy #nicumoments #identicalgirls #identicaltwins #twins #tendermoments #preciousmoments #brighamandwomensnicu #brighamandwomenshospital #preemie #nicuwarrior #nicuwarriors #marchofdimes #nicuawarenessmonth #nicuparents #nicunursesrock #nicunurses

We have just got home from our hospital appointment. . This has been going on since Mason was born. His health care visitor had always mentioned that Mason had a large head. At his one year check they said it again and referred me to the doctors who then referred me to paediatrics at queens hospital Romford. . We had our initial consultant appointment in October and Mason was sent for an MRI. Any mums or dads that have had to watch their baby have one. I feel for you and I know! It was one of the worst parenting experiences I’d ever gone through. . We were told if anything was serious we would hear back immediately which we didn’t we have just been patiently waiting for our follow up appointment to come around where today we were told ITS ALL CLEAR 💕💕💕 . #mummybloggeruk #mummyblogger #potd #stripes #hospital #outpatients #mri #freshhaircut #babyboy #toddlerhairstyles #nicu #nicubaby #allclear

This couple had 2 previous cesareans. They weren’t sure whether they wanted a VBAC or to schedule a third cesarean. Both scenarios scared this sweet mother. They prepared by doing the research on both options and listening to evidence on both during our prenatals. We prepared for both situations. They decided to schedule a cesarean but go with the flow if labor happened before then. On their due date, she wasn’t convinced that she was in labor. When we arrived at the hospital she was in active labor which surprised her! She gave it her all and got so close to pushing her baby out. Her sweet baby boy had other ideas though. He had a true knot in his cord and needed to be delivered via cesarean after all. He spent a bit of time in NICU too but is a fighter and is doing well now! I’m so proud of this couple for working so hard to stay calm when things didn’t go exactly the way they were hoping! ❤️ #DouLife #DouLifefamily #doula #birthdoula #midwife #OB #CBAC #cesareanbirthaftercesarean #NICU #babyboy 🌟Shared with permission🌟
January 5 ➡️ February 18 • I can’t believe how much our little guy has changed!! 😱🥰 • Yesterday, Liam took more than half his feeding by mouth in 24 hours for the first time!! 🎉 Because of that accomplishment, he was placed on an ad lib feeding schedule. Before, he was required to have 45 ml of milk every 3 hours. With the ad lib schedule, he can eat every 2 1/2-4 hours, and he just needs a certain amount of mls in 12 hours. He can eat less at one feeding and more at another as long as he gets the total amount needed in 12 hours. This gives us more flexibility and will be more like what life will be like when we go home. I’m so happy he’s now on this schedule!! ☺️ Sometimes he was getting hungry before his feedings, but we couldnt feed him until the next every 3 hour care had come. It’s torture to watch your baby exhibiting all the hunger cues but being unable to feed him yet. 😣 So thankful for this change!

If you work in the NICU staff, ask yourself this question every day. ‍ What’s it like to talk to you at the end of a day? What is it like to share a patient caseload with you? What’s it like to be led by you? Only ask it if you’re prepared to take a hard look at how you enter a room, a meeting, a party, a marriage. ‍ The cool thing is this is not about better-behavior-through-guilt. And it’s not about being nice. It’s simply about deciding what kind of life you want and how you want to show up in it. ‍ #inspiration #energy #change #motivation #neonatal #therapists #nicu #nicunurse
