I was in special care, when I was younger!
I have twin boys (now 6) they where born 7 weeks early weighing 4.2 and 4.8lb they where in scbu for 3 weeks and i ow them alot x
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 dad's poem.
all babies deserve a chance to survive.
40 years ago I was born at 25 weeks weighing 2 lb 10oz without SCBU I wouldn't be here.
both my babies were in special care, I worked there for 16 years and know how important and appreciated the work is.
My first child was premature, couldn't have survived with the special baby care unit, essential in any hospital.
all my babies have been born prem so have needed that extra care so im very,very,very,very,very grateful they r the best nurses ever
One of my children was premature, all babies need the extra care to survive.
