@kptngeech ( aka our resident, Dr. Chloe Nielsen) gave an amazing grand rounds on the ethics of periviability. She taught us that the earth is wobbling on its axis and in 13,000 years, Vega will be our guiding North Star, not Polaris, as it is today - an apt metaphor for the importance of shifting context and casuistry inherent to understanding our #dutyofcare in helping patients make decisions around periviability.

One week ago Kate Minnema and I️ welcomed Maverick Minnema into our lives. Our little man joined us on November 9th at 6:32am weighing in at 7 pounds 7 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. Franklin, Kate, and I️ could not be happier!

She is so adorable, and trust me she cries in 2 seconds once I put her down in the crib 😂

When the girls were born 7 weeks early, we didn’t fully understand why until the autopsy on Sloane’s placenta came back. We didn’t even know there was an autopsy to be done and in fact I thought perhaps everyone had over reacted, including myself, and perhaps if we would have just given Sloane more time she would have moved in my belly. I blamed myself for their premature birth for weeks until we learned the truth. Sloane’s placenta had completely died long ago, and she had attached herself to Harper’s placenta. And even with that scientific miracle to which she was able to survive in the womb until 33 weeks, she was only getting 20% of all the nutrients...and that meant Harper was only getting 80%. Their premature birth saved Sloane’s life and it was because of the science and the kind of research that the @marchofdimes funds that my girls were able to survive outside of the womb. I am so grateful to have an answer for my girls’ premature birth, but sadly most women don’t have an answer. We hope and pray that one day the medical community will understand premature birth better and even be able to prevent it. #worldprematurityday #marchofdimes #twins #NICU #NICUgrad
