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.
What year was that Deb? Amazing what they can do isn't it! I was in Utah 1979-1981
It was in 1981, they told us we could be stationd at Hill AFB but we decided to stay at Mtn Home.
