    It makes you feel blessed to live in a country with this level of medical help, I just wanted to give you and your new family a .

    I dont have a specific story but I have a few friends that were born between 24 -38 weeks and a few babies born before 30 weeks and all are healthy and fine.

    Congratulations on your new little baby boy. Stay strong for your little one and your wife. You are doing a great job already as a good dad. I could only imagine what you have gone through, but you have come out the otherside.

    My best friend and I were pregnant at the same time, 3 days apart, and we had our babies 3 days apart at the same hospital.
    She was over due as was I. She gave birth to her daughter like I did, with no problems. But afterwards, she just bled out.. And the bleeding wouldn't stop. Before she knew it she had all these specialists trying to stop the bleeding, and she was rushed to surgery. She lost lots of blood too. And Drs was telling her husband that they were 'working on her too' for a while there he thought he was about to become a single Dad. But she made it through the ordeal as well.
    She was in hospital for a while. She found out the cause of her bleed was a situation that happens in 1/100000 labours. She is now on the TTC party again, and her little bubby is almost 1 and a half.
    I wish for you and your family the best. And sending healthy good vibes your way!

    oh gee your pictures brings back memories of my littlest one. She was 28 weeks. We had a few issues medically with her but no major ones which I am so grateful. It is a long journey waiting for then to fatten up so that you can get them home. The first 30 days were bearable, after that it became harder. We have other children at home and the hospital had a no children policy in place so we could not all visit at the same time and had to tag team visits. It is much nicer visiting them once they are off the CPAP and you can see their face and interact a little more. I encourage you to do as many cares as you can as that is the one thing that reminds you that this is your child and that you can do something for them rather than watching the nurses do it all. Hoping your wife is on the mend and that you remember to look after each other through the journey

    Sending strength to your boy and your wife.

    I was born at 27 weeks and spent the first 3 months of my life in hospital. Obviously I have no idea what happened but I am fine now.

    My friend just delivered a bub at 30+3 at birth he wasn't breathing on his own but he is now and he is now in a normal cot and they are able to hold him whenever they want for as long as they want, it took a few days or over a week to get that first cuddle though.

    I really don't have much advise I am sure others will be along soon who have been through the same thing.

    I haven't had any time to post an update here but wife is doing fine - she has made a full recovery. Our little man is now 34 weeks and 4 days ( he was born at 27 weeks ) and is going great.

    IVH scans are clear, eyes are good and he came off hi flow O2 today (he was only on 21% anyway). We think his PDA is closed - they arent too worried and wont do a cardio review until he is ready to go home. He was 940g when born and is now a great big 2160g !!

    I thought I'd post a picture taken tonight while giving him a nurse.
