Little Rosie's mum suffered badly from pregnancy cholestasis, mum's levels where erratic throughout the weekly blood tests, until one day it was "right you're having your baby tomorrow 33weeks plus 5". Rosie's mum, Sarah, didn't show an ounce of fear.
I put on a brave face trying not to pass out in the operating theatre, managed to hold in the tears until that brief cuddle before being whisked off to NICU, not being able to see her for hours. Finally seeing Rosie with that cpap mask was the most unnatural thing I'd ever experienced. The staff looking after these baby's don't get enough credit, the reason I'm sharing this is to get awareness. You never quite know if that next baby in that plastic box is going to be yours.Marc
