When Kristen Terlizzi experienced complications during her pregnancy, she put her trust in Stanford Health Care. She had a team of 30 multidisciplinary surgeons and nurses helping to safely deliver her baby, but Terlizzi remained in the hospital for nearly two months due to a condition called placenta percreta, a condition where the placenta invades the uterine wall. Terlizzi's experience at Stanford Health Care prompted her to become a Stanford Hospital volunteer. “I felt like I had this team of advisors, this team of people rooting for me,” said Terlizzi. “There were so many people that were genuinely concerned about me. It’s the human experiences that really leave me in awe.”
