On February 19th, four-month old Bryce and his mom, Cherisse DeShields, stopped by the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Department at Jefferson Washington Township to visit our staff. Charisse delivered Bryce at the hospital on October 2, 2018, following a high-risk pregnancy. Her doctor was Jefferson Health New Jersey OB/GYN Deborah White, DO. During their recent visit to the hospital, Bryce received a red hat, as part of Jefferson’s participation in the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Little Hats, Big Hearts™ program. Babies born at Jefferson Washington Township Hospital receive a beautiful handmade, knitted or crocheted red hat, as well as a kit with heart-healthy information for mom and baby as part of the AHA program. Keep on smiling, Bryce!
