Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Families: Maria
The Birth Place is a unique place to bring your baby into the world because they cater to each mother-to-be on a personal level. This isn't your cookie-cutter delivery center.
Maria had what could be considered the perfect first pregnancy. On Oct 17 at 5:27AM her water broke at home one week before her due date.
Maria says Dr. Tynes and her nurse Janis helped make it feel so comfortable for her and her family. She chose the Birth Place because it felt like an intimate place and the perfect environment.
Not everything that Children's Miracle Network funds involves a tragedy. The Birth Place, for instance, can make delivering a child both comfortable and intimate, based on what each mother needs individually.
“Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $5 billion—most of it $1 at a time—for 170 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada, which, in turn, use the money where it’s needed the most. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
Our mission: We increase funds and awareness for local children’s hospitals.
Our vision: Together we save kids’ lives.
Right now there’s a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital working to save the lives of kids in your community. In fact, 62 children enter a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital for treatment every minute — that’s one child every second. Some are battling cancer. Some are suffering from a traumatic injury. Others require constant care because they were born too early, or with a genetic disease. Regardless of why the kids are there, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals always have their doors open.”
