Our agency is seeking your support to help a mother in our program who recently delivered quadruplets at 24 weeks. Please share this if you know of someone who may be able to support her in any way! Thank you! Read more below:
Seeking help! My agency (Center for Community Health and Well-Being) has a mom in our program who recently delivered quadruplets (yes, 4 babies!) at 24 weeks. S...he hasn't been in the US for very long and all of her family is out of the country. Her babies are being released from the NICU early next week and my agency is seeking donations (meals, baby items, diapers, and physical support) to help this mom through the next few weeks. Her UC Davis support team has helped her create a rigorous schedule for caring for the babies and as you can imagine, she has virtually zero time between feedings. They also estimate that she will go through at least 48 diapers PER DAY.
This amazing woman is dedicated to doing the very best for her little ones, but has very limited access to resources, is scared and alone. The advocates on my staff are doing an incredible job of providing her support, but we need more help. If you are able, we are seeking donations to help this mother as she adjusts to not just one new babe, but 4. Please message/comment if you are able to support her in any way. Thank you in advance!
