Where It Began
Founded in San Diego in 2009
Miracle Babies was founded by Dr. Sean Daneshmand, a board-certified obstetrician with extensive experience caring for women with high-risk pregnancies. Inspired by his personal experience with his wife’s high- risk pregnancy and daughter Natalie being born prematurely.
Dr. Daneshmand has witnessed the struggles that many low-income families face when their baby is hospitalized. Dr. Daneshmand decided to focus the main effort of Miracle Babies on the distribution of direct financial assistance.
Miracle Babies serves families with hospitalized newborns in any San Diego County hospital, Children’s Hospital Orange County (CHOC), UCI Medical Center in Orange County, and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA). Our geographic reach is much wider, however: infants are often transported from neighboring counties. In fact, families from as far away as Saipan and Hawaii have benefited from our programs.
