premature twins

Emmie was born 10th Feb 14 weighing 1lb 12oz at 28 weeks via emergency section due to placenta failure and reversed blood flow. Emmie stopped growing at 24 weeks, the problem wasn’t picked up despite me reporting minimal movement from 24 weeks to be told she was fine nothing to worry about. Emmie was ventilated then weaned down to low flow oxygen which she came home using. We spent 69 days in the NICU, the nurses are angels in disguise and the doctors are true miracle workers, not only did they save my little girl they also provided me with huge support at times I didn’t think I could cope. Here is Emmie from birth to now, a cheeky 16month old full of mischief and perfectly healthy!
