The Story of Baby Vaishnavi

December 27, 2017

It is always overwhelming to hear such words of heartfelt gratitude from happy families. A happy grandfather thanks the Fortis team as he takes home his granddaughter after 3 months in NICU. The team’s hard work and dedication brought the baby from a mere 520 gms to a healthy 2.25 kg and ready
to go home with her family.

Kartik and Poornima a couple from Bangalore, had been struggling to conceive for the last 10 years when they finally approached the creation team at Fortis Hospital, BG Road. Though their first IVF cycle was successful, unfortunately they had a miscarriage at 18 weeks. However, with further treatment, in
the 2nd IVF cycle they conceived and since it was a high risk pregnancy, Poornima went into premature labor at 26 weeks. Unfortunately two of the male children could not survive while the youngest of the triplets, the baby girl survived at 520gm. The baby remained critical for long and fought with respiratory
insufficiency and various infections for nearly 3 months in the NICU and is now leaving for home at a healthy 2.25 Kg.
