Children’s Miracle Network – Meet the Staff: Mackie, The Birth Place
Imagine delivering your baby in a place that is 100% dedicated to your comfort and individual needs.
Our comprehensive pre-natal education classes are taught by team members, including Nurses, Certified Child Life Specialists, Pediatricians, Pediatric Dentists and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.
This program includes valuable information about preparing for labor, childbirth, anesthesia and childbirth medications and preparing other children for new baby’s arrival. Lactation and breastfeeding education and support are available before and after baby’s arrival. Important resources to help you prepare to bring baby home are also provided, including infant CPR, baby basics plus dental and well-baby health information as well as techniques for soothing baby in the first months of life.
“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.”
