Why I’ve been so quiet lately

NICU nurses are superheroes

Henry just before leaving hospital

Some of you may have noticed that I have not posted anything or shared any resources at all this year. Well, there is a good reason for that. On 27th December following the scariest night of my life (up to that point) at just 23 weeks pregnant I gave birth to twin boys, Henry and Archie, both weighing in at just 1lb 2oz each.

My husband and I have had quite a tough journey. Archie sadly passed away the day after he was born but Henry continued to fight on and his strength and resilience over the past four months has been nothing short of incredible. He has endured a vast array of medical treatment, ventilation, various types of breathing support, several infections, many x-rays and 12 blood transfusions under the wonderful care of the Oliver Fisher Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. In total he spent 114 days in hospital and came home two and a half weeks ago (one week before his due date). You can read our full story over on my other website, miraclebabies.co.uk.

I am taking part in a 5km run in August to help raise funds for the amazing unit that kept my miracle baby safe for so long. If you have used my resources or are just inspired by our story please consider making a donation using the link below. Every little helps.
