Hi! I’m Iris’s mom and as I write this we’re getting close to what should be her first birthday. Our daughter died during childbirth - from complications due to pre-term birth. We move forward in our lives with her in our hearts and with hope that we can end pre-term birth in the US. We were shocked to learn that in 2018 rare diseases are being cured but we still don’t know what causes normal child birth. All families deserve these basic answers and our preemies need these answers more than anyone. Once we know what triggers normal childbirth- the novel therapies to stop it from happening early can be developed. We’re so excited to support this amazing research that’s being conducted by an incredible team at the Columbia Preterm Birth Prevention Center!
