At 24 weeks, I went into labor and delivered my baby girl, River - she was only 11" long and weighted 1 lb 7oz.
The story follows Cynthia and Ian Lau, both physicians, on their emotional journey after the premature birth of their daughter, Lucy. Delivered at 23 weeks in a remote part of Canada, Lucy was flown from Manitoba to the closest NICU two hours away, in Winnipeg.
Babies Luke & Levi
“At 28 weeks and 4 days, my beautiful boys made their great debut. They made the cutoff for receiving the human milk-based fortifiers, but they were healthy – the absolute best-case scenario I could have hoped for!"
“While on an exclusive human milk diet, Micaiah thrived — he had no major surgeries or complications."
Babies Luke & Ava
“After the scare, the doctors put both Ava and Luke on the Prolact+ human milk-based fortifier that was added to my breast milk to help them gain weight and get stronger."
“With an exclusive human milk diet, she consistently gained weight every day and never had an infection."
"They prescribed human milk-based fortifier be added to her breast milk, in order to provide the additional calories and nutrition that was essential for River not only to survive, but to thrive."
"I realized the importance of the human milk fortifier my own son received when he was in the NICU."
"Thanks to our wonderful donors, we were able to bring Baby Leah home to her wonderful parents!"
"Rosie’s health and growth took off as soon as we put her on an exclusive human milk diet and the rest, shall we say, is history.”
