Zoe Saldana gave birth to her now 10-month-old twin boys prematurely last November and she recently spoke with PEOPLE Magazine about her experience.
The 37 year old actress who married Marco Perego back in July 2013 admits that she struggled to cope when her babies were immediately taken to a Neo-Natal Intensive Care unit in an LA hospital.
“When I was in the neonatal intensive care unit with my two sons, I became like every parent that was on that floor. My husband and I were at the mercy of our nurses and doctors — our children’s lives depended on their every move.” The actress told PEOPLE.
After her experience the Avatar star has teamed up with Brave Beginnings, a not-for-profit organisation that helps ensure hospitals have access to life saving equipment they need to help premature babies thrive.
When talking about Brave Beginnings the star says “I went through it, I was there. I was a parent and my children were the ones that benefitted from having excellent services from the hospital. And I want that for every parent. I want that for every child.”
