My son Charlie (now 10) was born at 30 weeks, weighing just 2lbs and 15oz. He suffered a brain haemorrhage at birth and contracted meningitis at 5 days old. I will be forever grateful to the SCBU teams at Halifax and Southampton for the superb level of care he received. He is now a healthy, happy boy who is adored :)

My son was born @ 27 weeks back in 1978, he weighed 2lbs 4oz. After 1 week @ the Oxford Radcliffe he was sent back to Banbury Horton General Special Care Baby Unit, he was there for 2 months. What an incredible job they did with him, and also for myself and husband. Could never repay them, we now have 3 beautiful granddaughters, who wouldn't be here today if not for the hard work of all the staff involved. We will be for ever indebted to them.
