Zoe Saldana looks fresh-faced as she leaves her gym after a workout on Wednesday (October 7) in West Hollywood, Calif.
“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,” Zoe told People. “When children are born prematurely, they don’t just need to be held, they need assistance breathing, feeding and going to the bathroom. They also need incubators to protect them while they’re forming immune systems.”
“I went through it,” Zoe continued. “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.”
