  • Berkley Welles Wellstein Class of 2002

    Berkley is a 3rd grader teacher at North Shore School in Chicago. She has created the Jane B. Wellstein Memorial Fund. They officially opened and dedication their second Jane's Room on June 26 at Rush University Medical Center.
           "After the stillborn birth of their first child, daughter Jane, on January 25, 2012, 3rd Grade Teacher Berkley Wellstein and her husband Bob knew they wanted to do something to keep her memory alive. Hence, they created the Jane B. Wellstein Memorial Fund. "Giving back to Northwestern's Prentice Women's Hospital was extremely important to us due to the amazing care and support they provided during our stay. It would also give us a platform to support other parents and families who unfortunately find themselves in a similar situation," explains Berkley.
          Throughout labor and delivery, Bob and family members were asked to go to the waiting room. The room was filled with happy and celebrating families, while their family was in tears. "When the idea to create a private space for grieving families on the labor and delivery floor was presented, it was obvious--this was a our calling."
           Their first Jane's Room project at Northwestern's Prentice Women's Hospital in Chicago was unveiled on January 25, 2013. Berkley and Bob are currently working on their second Jane's Room project at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, which opened in March 2014. With continued support, they hope to move the Jane's Room idea to other hospitals in the Chicago area and potentially around the country. For more information visit www.janebwellstein.org"
