My twins were born in 1987 at 28 weeks into my pregnancy. I was 20, healthy the pregnancy was going very well. I went into labour they didn’t seem to know why. I got taken to a room were so many doctors were there all telling me there role. My head was in a spin, I didn’t know what was happening. I got told I had to give birth after they were born they were took away to the nic unit and we didn’t see them until 7 hours later. No one told us what to expect, it was so frightening. We were told one of the twins was to poorly and wouldn’t make it. They were in hospital for 3 months, but they both survived they are 34 now.
They discharged them from hospital when they were 5. They had a rough first 2 years, but after that they have been healthy with family’s of there own. I don’t know what we would of done if we lost them. My heart goes out to everyone on here who have lost babies born early and not made it. I’ve put my story on to all mums and dads that have babies early it can turn out all right, but not everyone as been as lucky as us but the thing is no one could give me any answers why I went into labour at 28 weeks. I wanted some sort of answers, but they could not give me any, the only thing they told us is these things happen and probably there wasn’t enough room for them. I was being checked all the time so wouldn’t they have seen this on scans. Parents need answers especially if there babies didn’t make it. I think it helps slightly for mums and dads to eventually with time move on.Diane
