Mamas on Bedrest: For Prematurity Awareness Day, A Talk with “Sweetie’s Mama”November 18th, 2011
On Twitter she’s known as @Sweetiesmama, but Charisse Mora Medina is so much more! Mama, wife and preemie activist, Mora Medina has gained a wealth of knowledge in learning to care for “Sweetie”. From her intuitive knowing that “Sweetie” was coming, to his early birth and subsequent NICU stay, Mora Medina has traveled and maneuvered a multitude of conundrums in an effort to secure the best care for her child-including her own battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD.
