Hadassah High-Risk Pregnancy Expert Helps Ensure Successful Birth of Twins

Prof. Drorith Hochner-Celnikier

Yael, a speech therapist whose previous three children were born very small, was able to add healthy twins to her family, thanks in part to the intervention of Prof. Drorith Hochner-Celnikier, high-risk pregnancy expert and Director of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Hadassah Hospital-Mount Scopus.

There were emergencies and hospitalizations along the way and Yael had to give herself daily shots. But in her 36th week of pregnancy, Yael became the happy mother (via caesarian section) of two healthy baby girls, weighing 2 kilos and 2.3 kilos, respectively.

"How unthinkable life would be without Hadassah," notes Barbara Sofer, grandmother to the twins--and Hadassah's Director of Public Relations in Israel.
