Girl in Glass

Listen 00:52:16

Your baby is born prematurely… a nightmare of unknowns. We talk with Deanna Fei, author of Girl in Glass, and her harrowing journey that included not only the uncertainty of medical intervention, but also her baby being publicly labeled “distressed” by the CEO of her husband’s company. Her child was the rationale for benefit cuts. The Fei family is not alone, so we look at both the value of human life and the question of of shame and blame in medical benefits. Finally, a look at the terrifying questions before parents of premature infants and the mother-child bond.
