On the 17th of November it is world prematurity day
For a lot of people this wouldn't cross your mind and why would it?
Every year 15 million babies are born prematurely and need special care to bring them to health. I have been here twice and anything to do with premature babies holds a very close place in my heart.
The care and dedication midwives and special care nurses give is amazing and I feel they do not get the recognition they deserve. Their primary role is to care for sick babies however they do so much more than that. They provide emotional support for family's and parents who are struggling to come to terms with their experience.
Of the 15 million babies born early each year 1 million sadly do not make it.
The reasons behind this post is to ask, if you are doing something for charity this year, if you have a work place looking to do a charity event or even a charity to give to this year, look into premature baby charities. It may not be something you have been affected by, but it could happen to you, a family member, a friend or even a neighbour.
