Our team members March for Babies
In the U.S., 1 in 10 babies is born prematurely, like Shay, who was born at 30 weeks by emergency C-section at Novant Health UVA Health System Prince William Medical Center. Unable to breathe on her own at birth, Shay Oles Baldwin spent 43 days in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU). While Shay will continue to have breathing issues, she is on track developmentally and meeting her milestones. This year, the Baldwin family served as ambassadors for the Washington, D.C. metro area March for Babies events.
Thank you to all of our team members who have supported Novant Health UVA Health System in the March for Babies. In the two months leading up to the Prince William County March for Babies, April 30, our department teams raised more than $19,000. Our teams will continue to raise funds through June 30.
