    Ambassador Family: The Woodruff Family

    At Night Moves, you'll have the great fortune to meet the 2013 Ambassadors: The Woodruff Family. Here is their story:

    In January of 2007, our son Dylan Woodruff was born, a healthy and happy baby boy. Then, in August of 2008, we learned that Dylan had a sibling on the way. One evening, my wife Molly did not feel well and, after a short trip to the hospital, found herself on bed rest. There were no indications of any complications during the pregnancy, but at 24 weeks of gestation, Rohan Woodruff arrived stillborn on December 30, 2008.

    The doctors were unable to determine the exact reason for Rohan's early arrival, but they suspected Molly had developed an incompetent cervix, which basically means the cervix prematurely widens and thins leading to a preterm delivery. This is a rare condition, but even more so given that Molly had carried Dylan to full-term. This came as a complete shock to our family. In 2009, we decided to try one more time. We worked with a specialist who monitored the pregnancy from the beginning. Molly took progesterone shots, also known as 17P, which was developed with the support of March of Dimes research. Molly spent several weeks, including Christmas and New Years, on bed rest in the hospital. Unfortunately, the doctor's suspicions about the incompetent cervix were correct. On January 9, 2010, Isaac Henry Woodruff arrived stillborn at 22 weeks of gestation. We have joined the March of Dimes Night Moves as an active way to remember Rohan and Isaac and to help future babies have healthier beginnings. We hope you will join us for Night Moves on Friday, September 20 as we honor and celebrate all babies who have arrived too soon.

    Sincerely,

    Chris, Molly and Dylan Woodruff

    Team Rohan and Isaac
