Saving a 2-day old Haitian girl

Debbie Wimmer, ’83 M.S.N., CRNP, assistant clinical professor, and Geri O’Hare ’85 B.S.N., M.S.N., R.N., CRNP, both pediatric nurse practitioners, begin to examine a two-day old infant girl whose traumatized mother had not breastfed her at all. After treating the mother’s complaints of back pain and working with her to breastfeed, she finally would look at and feed her child. Two other babies in similar situations had died.
