Carlow Students Visit With Expecting Moms at Magee

By: Courtney McCrimmon

carlowOnce in a while, an otherwise routine pregnancy develops a complication requiring hospitalization. Conditions ranging from uncontrolled high blood pressure to tears in the placenta can necessitate long-term hospital-provided care.

The days and weeks of hospitalization can be grueling on the expectant moms as well as their families. To help break up the monotony for soon-to-be big brothers and sisters, members of Delta Gamma Beta, Carlow University’s first sorority, on Jan. 30 dropped off goodie bags filled with crayons, coloring books and art supplies to families at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC. 

The sisters chose Magee as their philanthropy to support, and their service projects will continue to benefit patients of the hospital for years to come.
