Thank You to These Sponsors!
Thank you to Dr. Arij Fakash and the Scripps Perinatology Sonographers for your sponsorship at our "Chicken Soup" event live from the home of best selling author and Holocaust survivor Dr. Edith Eger.

These women are highly specialized sonographer superstars who consistently exemplify clinical excellence, dedication to their patients, and compassion. Scripps Perinatology is committed to raising awareness for maternal mental health. Their sponsorship benefits our newest program, MY BRAIN, MY BABY, a perinatal mental wellness program. Now, more than ever, new and expectant mothers need support as they face issues impacting their health and wellness, including rising maternal mortality rates, the COVID-19 pandemic, and racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare. 
Thank you to Janis Black Warner and Doug Warner who have been loyal supporters to Miracle Babies and instrumental in our expansion to Los Angeles. This dynamic duo were first introduced to Miracle Babies after attending our annual gala with lifetime friends Carmela and Miguel Koenig. Shortly thereafter, Janice introduced us to Children's Hospital Los Angeles, where she serves as a Foundation Board Trustee. Miracle Babies first Los Angeles event benefitted the hospitals' NICCU providing camera's for their isolette incubators providing 24 hour access to "view" their babies.
Today, thanks to Janice, Doug and Terry Green, Associate Senior Vice President of Development at Children's Hospital Los Angeles Miracle Babies is now providing transportation to parents in Los Angeles. We are working to ensure all parents have access to their hospitalized infants, removing financial and transportation barriers.
Janice shares, " This is all about doing good for other's. My father, Stanley Black always says "You Give and it Comes Back!" The best part is meeting all of these like minded, kind, giving & caring amazing people!"

Miracle Baby Scarlett
Meet miracle baby Scarlett! Scarlett was born September 10, 2019 at 23 weeks. She weighed only 1 pound at birth. We first met Scarlett's family back in 2019 when they received assistance from Miracle Babies. They spent that holiday season in the NICU with Scarlett.
This past October, we had the honor to officially meet Scarlett during the Miracle Babies Calendar photo shoot. She is the proud cover for the month of September. She was vibrant, spunky and very photogenic. Scarlett is now a thriving 1 and a half year old!
