The Importance of RSV Prevention in Preemies | #MC, #RSVAwareness #PreemieProtection

“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for MedImmune, helping spread awareness of RSV Prevention and Awareness in Preemies. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

With World Prematurity Day coming up on November 17th, I got to thinking about 7 years ago when my little man was born. When I was pregnant with him, things got a little scary. At 28 weeks pregnant, I was diagnosed with Pre-Eclampsia and put on bed rest. At 33 weeks, my doctor decided to start weekly fetal monitoring to keep an eye on my little man, however since my blood pressure wouldn’t come down during the monitoring, they decided to admit me.
