Children’s National saved my son’s life in 2016. Pryce was born at a local hospital that experienced a water contamination emergency. Two babies in their NICU passed away. Emergency transport brought my son to Children’s National immediately after birth. I stayed behind to recover from a C-section.
The medical staff kept him safe and healthy until I could get there. If he had not transferred, he might have gotten sick, or worse. They communicated with me throughout and reassured me that my baby was OK. When I finally got there, the staff taught me how to feed, bathe and comfort him. This made me feel less afraid. I was a first-time mom on my own. They also prepared me for the urology surgery he would have a few months later.
I am forever grateful for the love and care we experienced at Children’s National. Today, Pryce is a healthy 6-year-old who loves to draw. You’d never know his birth was so traumatic.
