My baby was in the NICU when he arrived via emergency c-section due to distress. Dr. Ritter came to my room, reassured me that she was going to take the absolute best care of my son they could and told me her plan for him immediately. She then gave me a hug, after all I probably look perfectly terrified after the long night I had. When he was born, the first 48 hours were terrifying, but she explained everything that was happening and what she was doing to help.
