A Journey of Love: 15 Years Ago Ellen Labbe Was a "28-Weeker" - Weighing Only 1 lb, 12 oz at Birth - But What She Lacked In Weight the NICU Care Team Made Up For in Love

Denise Labbe, Ellen's mom, started feeling complications of her pregnancy at only 26 weeks. She had planned on having her baby at another area hospital, but she knew that she needed high-risk pregnancy care. When Ellen arrived at 28 weeks, she fit in the palm of her father's hand. Today, 15 years later, Ellen is a gifted student, musician and already is 5'10" thanks in part to the exceptional care she received in the NICU at Miller Children's.
