Baby Middy arrived on August 20 to much fanfare. Middy is a newborn baby simulator that will help train caregivers in BirthPlace.
Generously funded by the Maybelle Clark Macdonald Fund, Middy is named after Maybelle. Maybelle supported and attended to the needs of the poor, homeless, and disenfranchised with grace, humility, passion, and wisdom with her own wonderfully endearing style. Her philanthropic ventures began as a child and extended into her final days.
Middy is designed to provide realistic training for interventions such as obstructed breathing in a newborn. While few babies have breathing problems at birth, when one does, quick action is required. Having Baby Middy to practice on will prepare our BirthPlace caregivers to handle these critical situations quickly and efficiently.
