A little goes a long way. MidMichigan Medical Center – Midland is participating in the second annual Give Local Midland program sponsored by the Midland Area Community Foundation on Tuesday, May 5.
The Medical Center has designated a very special need to benefit from donations made to its endowment that will support every infant that is born at the Medical Center. Funds raised will help the Medical Center upgrade its fetal heart Dopplers. A Doppler is a hand-held, ultrasound device that is a safe and effective way to monitor the baby's heart tones while the mother is in labor. This equipment will help us discover if the infant is experiencing any form of difficulty. If there is an issue, it will allow us to immediately do what is necessary to help the baby.
The fetal heart Doppler that we would like to purchase will be a digital read out screen of what the fetal heart tones are, and will be waterproof enabling the equipment to also be used on mothers who like to use the jet tub to aid them during their labor.
Giving opens at midnight, Tuesday, May 5, and concludes at 11:59:59 p.m. on Tuesday, May 5.
