  1. U are a great speaker. I cried watching this video since I lost my best friend and her baby the day before her baby shower at age 44; my oldest sister due to preclamcia. She was a role model in every way. Highly intelligent, spoke 5 fluent language s, had 2 master’s degrees, was from primary school thru university level she graduated top 10% of class and was national academic achiever, but the most beautiful thing about her is she was a very amicable and humble person. Very difficult to overcome such tragedy and yes, u got lucky, I live daily with guilt of not being there for her when she went through her tragedy because no matter how painful it is, I can never bring her back so I pray that when I die, I reunite with her. Your presentation is excellent!!

    • Thank you, Rocio, your personal story has touched me deeply! Please accept my condolences for the passing of your sister and her child. May you be comforted in knowing that your work as an interpreter is helping other families to cope with similar difficult situations.

  2. Thank you for sharing with us this presentation and what was a difficult time for your family and especially for you as a mom. My experience at NICU is dated more than 20 years but your story brought up fresh memories. I appreciate you willingness to let us learn from those “fragile moments”.

  3. I work with occupational therapists and occasionally physical therapists when a lactation consultant is not available.
    Occupational therapist work in the NICU to help preemies learn to suckle. They also teach positioning and details of latching for mothers. The question on the quiz should be modified. Possible answers: Social Worker; Respiratory therapist; Occupational therapist; Lactation consultant
