The Thooft Family

Everest Thooft
Premature Birth

Typically you doing walk into your NST and expect to find out that you’ll be having a baby within the next few days, especially when not prepaired or even have your hospital bag ready! Everest came 2 days later at 8:51 A.M! Nothing ever prepares you to have your baby at 34 weeks. Shortly after birth Mom found out her job will not allow her paid maternity leave, does not qualify for short term disability, or FMLA. Then the following day Dad got laid off from his job due to workplace injuries! We would like mom to at least be able to get by so she can truly spend her maternity leave with Everest when he isn’t in the NICU instead if having to go back to work early because of financial reasons!
