Sarah Fowler Mississippi Clarion Ledger Published 11:00 p.m. UTC Jul 30, 2018 STARKVILLE — Natoya Sanders keeps track of time by milestones in her son’s life. The days blur together but the moments of her baby boy's life are forever frozen in her mind, captured like a picture. Born at 25 weeks, Jordan weighed 1 pound, 1 ounce. He was 3 days old the first time Sanders saw him. He was 23 days old when she held him for the first time. He cried for the first time at 72 days old. He spent eight months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. He died four months shy of his first birthday. For Sanders, the memories of her son is all she has left. In Mississippi, 5,004 babies are born preterm annually — more than 13 percent of the state's birth rate — according to Wengora Thompson with March of Dimes Mississippi.

Premature birth and its complications are the … [Read more...] about Jordan’s story: One mother’s experience with premature birth and the loss of a child
