Birth in Israel

Birth in IsraelThis year’s holiday post brought New Years greetings from Rostov in Russian. A beautiful card and an original poem written by a grateful mom was sent to us by a family who chose to come to the Mother and Child unit at the “Hadassah” University Hospital in Ein Kerem, Jerusalem.

The family contacted iMER when in the second trimester the mother was classified as a high risk pregnancy. Once supplied with all of the medical records, the medical advisor at iMER referred the case to Professor Jossef Ezra , a specialist in maternal / fetal medicine.
Recognizing the critical situation, the couple accepted the iMER proposal and came to Israel to be treated at “Hadassah”. Professor Ezra (himself a father of six) closely followed the fetus development and the mother’s general condition. Precisely as suspected, complications in the pregnancy developed and at the critical moment Professor Ezra performed a Cesarean section which saved both mother and child and provided them with the ultimate chances for survival.
A healthy baby girl was born and following a month’s care in the Neo Natal unit, the thrilled parents brought their baby back to Russia to her anxiously awaiting family.
The greeting read thus –

Dear iMER team,
I wish you all a Happy New Year!
I send you my wishes for health, luck and strength to address all of the challenges that face you and that you do this with the positive attitude and smile on your faces.
All the best to you and I thank you, iMER for your existence.
Special thanks to Leah Leiborvich and Luba Popovsky, the patient coordinators (and my personal angels).
Annuta now weighs 5.2 Kg. and her robust smile lights the room. She makes happy sounds and plays with the toys that surround her.
You are always in our hearts,
Respectfully, the Vasilyev family
