We are so excited about this episode! We have a repeat guest this time around, our friend and Dr Tara Venable! You may remember Tara from last season, she was on the podcast answering all of our general pediatric questions! Tara works in one of our local hospitals in the NICU (Neonatal intensive care unit), and for this episode, we asked her to come on to talk about NICU specific things! We will jump into Cris’ son Beckett’s story of being in the NICU and cover all the things she wishes she had known during his time there. We hope this episode will help to educate and encourage any mommas who have been through, are going through, or have friends going through a NICU stay! We hope you join us, and as always… good luck surviving motherhood!
