“Isabella was born weighing just .85 ounces after 24 weeks of gestation. Her eyes were fused closed and her skin was still transparent. Every human touch caused her blood pressure to drop and her lungs to struggle even more than they did at rest. The Giraffe Omnibed was the closest thing to the womb as our skilled NICU team worked diligently to settle Isabella in and support her through her first difficult weeks. At two weeks of life, she is over the worst and is on her way to a fighting chance at survival.”– Mary Savage

Brave Beginning’s grant to Sacred Heart Hospital provided the Giraffe Omnibed (the most advanced OmniBed on the market) that supported Isabella’s life during her first few weeks.
