"We had lived in Ridgefield only one month when Audrey was born nearly seven weeks early..."

“The doctors and nurses in the NICU were wonderful in terms of their medical expertise, as well as their kindness and comfort towards our young family. We feel so fortunate that the NICU at Danbury Hospital was Audrey’s 'home away from home' during that critical first month of her life!”
