Together For A Better Beginning
Inspired by his personal experience with his wife’s high-risk pregnancy resulting in daughter Natalie being born prematurely, Dr. Sean Daneshmand, a board-certified obstetrician, founded Miracle Babies. Dr. Daneshmand has witnessed the struggles that many low-income families face when their baby is hospitalized. The financial and emotional support provided by Miracle Babies, allows families to be with their critically ill babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), thereby lowering the babies’ stress levels and creating positive health outcomes. Miracle Babies also reduces NICU admissions through prevention, education and research.
