"Getting the Baha has changed my life. It's given me back my classroom, my family, my friends, the ability to go out and socialise."

- Shelly, Cochlear™ Baha® system recipient, USA

How one teacher kept her classroom

Shelly knows her purpose in life: to teach. Before getting a Cochlear™ Baha® system to treat her hearing loss, she found work too exhausting and she feared she would lose her ability to stay in the classroom.

People underestimate how much effort goes into trying to hear. It's exhausting. Being able to hear through a Baha system makes life easier. The energy that went towards trying to hear is now refocused back on Shelly's teaching. To her, this is a tremendous benefit.

Shelly loves the ease of communicating with a Cochlear Baha system and True Wireless™ accessories. She can stream calls from her son straight to her sound processor, and the Mini Mic lets her hear her husband even if he’s at the other end of the room.

It's about hearing more easily, so Shelly can get on with life.
