In this episode, attorney and mother of 3 Colleen Blanco shares her story about her experience with giving birth at 24 weeks and her subsequent NICU journey, including an emergency evacuation of the entire neonatal unit during Hurricane Sandy! She describes the challenges and celebrates the wins. Her story is powerful, and we hope it might help others going through anything similar. To stay slightly on-theme, Sarah and Laura address a listener question from an OBGYN about batching work tasks (esp piled up notes).
