Swift photo 7 Triplets Stella, Jake, and Slade Swift spent more than a month in AtlantiCare’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in 2016. “The entire NICU team was extremely professional, attentive and helpful in explaining everything so that we could focus on our babies,” says Robin Swift.
On November 29, 2016, The AtlantiCare Foundation will join more than 10,000 other nonprofit organizations participating in #GivingTuesday.

#GivingTuesday is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.

Robin and Joseph Swift, of Margate, can remember watching their triplets – Stella, Jake, and Slade – struggle to breathe, suck and swallow on their own.

The Swift triplets spent more than a month in AtlantiCare’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in April 2016. The babies were born seven weeks early at the Roger B. Hansen Center for Childbirth at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Campus, which is home to the regional NICU.

Because the Swift triplets were born premature, the babies needed extra breathing support for their lungs and help with learning how to suck, swallow, and breathe on their own. After over a month of being in the NICU, the Swift family was able to bring home their triplets to meet their other five brothers and sisters.  

The Swifts, like parents of so many other infants for whom AtlantiCare’s NICU Team has cared, are grateful for the care AtlantiCare provided their triplets. Please consider supporting the care this team provides by donating to AtlantiCare’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit through the AtlantiCare Foundation, Tuesday, November 29 – #GivingTuesday.

Help babies born too early or who have advanced medical needs. Your support makes a moment matter for families like the Swifts.

Your donations help the AtlantiCare NICU provide:

  • New breathing tubes that help babies breathe on their own
  • Blankets for isolettes to help keep growing babies warm
  • The most up-to-date equipment to better assess specialized care

What better way to start off the holiday season than by giving back?

“This was the first time we had babies in the NICU and weren’t sure what to expect,” explains mom Robin, whose five other children were also born at the Roger B. Hansen Center for Childbirth at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Campus.

“All of the doctors and nurses at AtlantiCare gave us reassurance that our babies would be in the best place to grow and get bigger so we could bring them home when they were ready.”
