phototherapy

 

Jessica Faraci

About the artist:

Jessica Faraci is a family physician who treasures her family, her patients, writing and creativity. She had identical twin girls while in residency. 

About the artwork:

"Caring for newborns and giving phototherapy was just part of my job as a physician. But when it was my own little girl--suffering from jaundice as a result of twin transfusion and polycythemia (an excess of red blood cells)--phototherapy took on a whole new meaning. This is what intensive phototherapy in a neonatal isolette looks like. It was terrifying to see as a parent."
