Stocking Stuffer

For 59 years, the Cherese Mari Laulhere BirthCare Center (CMLBC) at MemorialCare Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach has been safely sending newborn babies born in December home in commemorative stockings. This holiday tradition continues today, despite the hardships of the past two years. The stockings are given to babies born between Dec. 20 and Dec. 25, and serve as a special keepsake for the new family. Above, Stephani Krugler and Jose Gonzalez greet their perfect stocking stuffer, their newborn baby girl Amelia. CMLBC cares for all pregnancies, whether routine or high risk. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is immediately adjacent to the BirthCare Center and cares for newborns who need advanced care. The BirthCare Center, a designated Baby-Friendly birth facility, offers a Perinatal Special Care Unit, specialized transport team, private labor and delivery suites, prenatal education classes and comprehensive lactation support, including an Outpatient Lactation Clinic.
