INSPIRING: NICU doctor now works alongside premature baby she saved decades ago

INSPIRING: NICU doctor now works alongside premature baby she saved decades ago

by Administrator

It was a walk down memory lane when a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) doctor at Franciscan Health in Lafayette, Indiana, welcomed the department’s newest nurse — who had once been a premature baby under the doctor’s own care.

Dr. Rosario Chua is the medical director of the NICU at Franciscan Health, and has been working as a NICU specialist for 30 years. When Megan Milakis was born prematurely 23 years ago, Chua was the physician who helped care for her. Today the two are working side by side.

“Obviously there are some patients that you never forget,” Chua told WLFI.

A Message from Archbishop Lori: Support the Hyde Amendment

A Message from Archbishop Lori: Support the Hyde Amendment

by Karl Pieleck
 
                  July 12, 2021   Dear Friends in Christ,  

In the coming days, Congress will either support or defeat the longstanding pro-life Hyde Amendment. For more than four decades, with bipartisan support, this amendment has prevented tax dollars from funding elective abortions. This amendment has saved countless lives of unborn children and it is imperative we continue to support it.  

During this critical time, let us join in prayer for the protection of the unborn. But let us also, as citizens and believers, raise our voices to protect the most defenseless of human beings, the unborn child. Let us stand together in promoting the sanctity of life.

Texas mom gives birth to rare set of twins after high risk pregnancy: ‘It’s a blessing’

Texas mom Rima Aldebbeh got quite a shock when her first prenatal ultrasound revealed she was having twins, but that wasn’t her only surprise. The ultrasound also revealed that the two babies shared the same amniotic sac and the same placenta, a phenomenon known as monochorionic-monoamniotic twins, which is seen in less than 0.1% of all pregnancies.

“It occurs in less than 1% of all identical twin pregnancies and less than 0.1% of all pregnancies in general,” Dr. Julia Flowers, OBGYN and chairman of the department of medical ethics at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center-Grapevine told NBC 5.

Minnesota State Senator ignored doctors’ advice to abort one twin: ‘We’re incredibly pro-life’

by Administrator

Julia Coleman, the youngest Minnesota state senator in office, recently spoke with The Catholic Spirit about her experience balancing marriage, motherhood, pregnancy, and her political career. She has three young sons, including identical twin newborns who faced a challenging pregnancy that led doctors to advise Coleman and her husband Jacob to abort one of them.

During her pregnancy with Charles and James, Charles was diagnosed with Selective Intrauterine Growth Restriction (sIUGR) and was not growing properly, and both boys were also monitored for  Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS), which can be life-threatening for one or both babies. Coleman also began to show signs of preterm labor and she ended up working from the hospital.
