Last week we premiered Anxious Love, a video short, at the Lyric in Old Town Fort Collins.
Anxious Love features one family’s story about premature birth. It gives us insight into what it’s like to have babies born too soon. Corry and Emily Petersen and big sister Ella, welcomed twin girls, Lily and Nora at 29 weeks gestation. Full term birth is 40 weeks.
Having babies born too soon is very scary and can those babies can have many long term health issues. However, thanks to modern medicine and the high level care available in our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), most babies grow to run, jump and play with little sign they arrived far earlier than nature intended.
We invite you to walk in the Peterson’s footsteps and see the role our NICU embraces in caring for our smallest, most fragile patients.
Please watch and share their story with friends and family. If premature birth has touched your life, please share your story with us.
