Sana’s Birthday Wish
Fir Square supports and cares for substance-using women and their newborns as they stabilize and withdraw from substances. Bonding is a crucial part of this process, and ultrasound scans are one of the best ways to establish this bond early on. For women whose lives are complicated by trauma, disenfranchisement, and subsequent problematic substance use, facilitating prenatal maternal/fetal bonding is critical to improving outcomes.
The very day after her birthday, Sana presented Dr. Ron Abrahams with a donation of $4,000.00 to purchase a SeeMore™ Ultrasound Imaging Probe for Fir Square. This probe connects to any laptop, and provides a cost-effective and convenient way to provide these important scans.
Because of Sana’s generosity, more birthdays at Fir Square will be celebrations that mark an end to intergenerational cycles of harm, for both mothers and their babies.
