Project Description

One in ten babies in the US is born premature, and their first breaths of life are vital. To give these babies the best start, our providers need special training. Funds from the Big Give will purchase Premature Anne, a manikin the size of a 25-week old premature baby. This realistic manikin can be programed with a wide variety of scenarios which train providers to save the tiniest of lives. Your help will give local babies the best start from the first breath.
