It’s every parent’s worst nightmare to not hear their baby cry when they’re born. Linda Nixon knows all too well. “They decided to do a c-section 6 weeks early,” Linda said. “He was born 4 lbs, 1 oz. I didn’t hear him crying when he came out, I was scared.”

Thanks to the amazing team in the delivery room, they got Parker breathing and were able to calm Linda’s fear. “They got my little Parker breathing,” said Linda. “I got to see him for a second before they took him to the NICU.”

Parker’s NICU experience was a good one and Linda was happy that he was able to come home quicker than she thought. “Everyone in there was very patient and explained everything about his eating and breathing issues. We were very lucky he was healthy enough to come home so soon!”

Parker is now 4 years old. His favorite thing in the world is to play with his little brother!

“The staff in the NICU are very special people to work with all those babies!”
