Help Make the Mother-Baby Project a Reality
There's a brief and important period in the life of parents and their newborn, when they connect for the first time, all huddled together in the same room. Just them. That's when families are born. And that's why it's so important to build.
New families deserve the same experience in their rooms as they encounter in the birthing center. For years, Fletcher Allen has given expectant mothers a memorable birth experience in a modern birthing facility. But the current mother-baby unit is 50 years old. It's two floors away from the birth unit. And far too often, new moms have to share a room and lack access to a private bathroom.
With your help, the new Mother-Baby Project will feature 44% more space per patient bed. Private rooms will be the norm. Patients will no longer have to leave the room for minor procedures, and “boarder” rooms will be included for families whose babies need to remain in the hospital after Mom has been discharged. Not only will this layout increase privacy, the quality of the care experience will also improve dramatically.
To make the Mother-Baby Project a reality, we need to raise $3 million. Your generosity will literally improve the wellbeing of some 2,000 families each year.
