Premature babies, or “preemies,” are constantly proving that life begins well before birth. A recent Twitter thread started by Dr. Jennifer Sedler celebrated these lives, born when it was still legal to kill them. And that thread went viral, causing the term “NICU” to trend.
“My new favorite hobby is hyping up my NICU babies to their parents,” tweeted Sedler on January 1. “I list their accomplishments for the day, say how proud I am of them, or highlight how strong they were today. It’s such a joy to see/hear their parents beam with pride over their tiny fighters.”
