Personal Stories

Inspiring stories from our graduates parents and carers

The Girls were born at 30 weeks. Alex weighed 1.4k, Jess 1.2k and Ellie 600g.  Alex spent 8 weeks on the NNU Jess 10 weeks and Ellie came home after 5 months and 4 days with oxygen and a feeding tube.


I had a fairly normal pregnancy until I had some lower back pain. After we had been doing some house renovations I thought I had just done a bit too much. With pains overnight (turns out they were contractions) I went to hospital 7.30am and after efforts to delay the arrival he was born at 15.34 that afternoon.
