Fountain Valley hospital hosts adorable Halloween-themed NICU reunion

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. (KABC) -- More than 100 people came to a Halloween celebration at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital.



It was a reunion for all the babies who were saved in the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The NICU specializes in the care of ill or premature newborns.

Children enjoyed a variety of carnival-style attractions, and parents had the opportunity to thank the doctors and nurses who cared for them. The event gave parents a chance to reconnect with each other.

According to the March of Dimes, about 380,000 babies in the U.S. are born prematurely each year.
