Women & Babies

Baby Ivanna

Against all odds

Three peaches weighed more than Ivanna at birth.  She was born at fewer than 25 weeks' gestation, 100 days early.  A whisper on the scales, she was a scant 390 grams.

Just 48 days later, when this photo was taken, she weighed 1,350 grams.

Ivanna and the too many like her and mom Maria propel the research of the DAN Women & Babies Program at Sunnybrook, which seeks to give pregnant women and the sickest and smallest babies their best chance.

As these stories show, they are in good hands.
