Hadassah Medical Center Saves the Lives of Triplets
Carrying triplets, a 49-year-old woman was rushed to the Hadassah Medical Center's High-risk Pregnancy Unit when she experienced swollen legs and contractions during her 26th week of pregnancy.
"Her legs were so swollen that she arrived at the hospital in a wheelchair, terrified that she would lose her babies," relates Orit Vinograd, Head Nurse of the Unit. When Hadassah's medical staff swung into action, they first gave the woman medication to slow and then stop the early contractions. They treated the swelling and gave her reflexology, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy. After a 10-week stay in the hospital, the woman gave birth to two boys and a girl!
