The fall of 2021 was a busy time for the Chapman family. Busy mom, Caroline had been helping her sister with wedding preparations followed by watching her nieces and nephews while their parents were on a trip. When she finally had time to catch her breath, she noticed she hadn’t felt the typical, normal baby movements. Out of an abundance of caution, Caroline talked with her husband Tyler and made the decision to go to the hospital to have the baby’s vitals checked.
After closely monitoring the baby’s heartbeats and movements, the medical team determined that Caroline would need to deliver her baby Vivian, then only 33 weeks gestation. Caroline and Tyler were anxious and concerned with their daughter’s outcome being delivered so early. After her premature birth, Vivian was admitted to the NICU for care and to monitor feeding and growth progress.
