I’m Rebecca, and this is my healing place.
When Rebecca Hermanski had her son Graham at Marin General Hospital, it was a natural,
un-medicated birth. But her second pregnancy was more complicated. Tests revealed that Rebecca’s
body was essentially rejecting her daughter’s blood. The baby would likely be born anemic, and the
pregnancy would require careful monitoring and a detailed delivery plan. Through Marin General
Hospital’s relationship with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, Rebecca received all the specialized
prenatal care she needed without leaving Marin. UCSF high-risk pregnancy specialists collaborated
with her OB/GYN throughout the pregnancy, and Rebecca was able to deliver at Marin General
Hospital. Baby Grace spent nine days in the Level II NICU, under the watchful eye of Marin General
Hospital experts and a UCSF neonatologist. Although her start was complicated, everyone agrees
that Grace is now a happy, healthy, beautiful baby.
