Having a baby is a life-changing experience.
Imagine having a premmie baby? Or twins early?
When pregnant with the twins I was told that I might have them early.
My water broke at 33 weeks and eventually had the girls at 34 weeks and 2 days.
Due to the twins being 6 weeks early and nearly 7 weeks early due to twin A or now known as Julia they went straight into the NICU (Neo-Natal Intensive Care). We stayed there for about 4 weeks from memory.
After the stay in the NICU, the babies and I were transferred to our local hospital to ensure that they put on more weight.
An early birth can be stressful for the mum, dad and of course your new little person/people.
WaterWipes has teamed up with Miracle Babies Foundation to support premature and sick newborns. “Miracle Babies Foundation is Australia’s leading organisation supporting premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them. Since 2005, Miracle Babies Foundation has been passionate in developing and providing vital programs and resources to support and enhance a family’s experience from a threatened pregnancy, hospital journey with a premature or sick newborn, the transition to home and beyond.”
“Each year in Australia around 27,000 babies are born prematurely.”
Jackson and Larissa spent 90 days in the NICU. While in hospital Larissa found that Jackson had very sensitive skin and WaterWipes was a great help.
“WaterWipes contain 99.9% water with just a drop of fruit extract so they are safe to use on a newborn baby. His rash went away almost immediately, and one year on we still only use WaterWipes and still have no rashes,” said Larissa.”
Premature births can also happen with a singleton pregnancy.
Having a premmie baby is daunting. They are so tiny, need extra attention, maybe help to breathe and with feeding.
My girls were born and could not suck yet, therefore they had to have a feeding tube.
One was in a humidicrib due to being extremely jaundiced and the other was in the ward in a cot. Changing a super tiny nappy with gloves and in weird holes in the humidicrib was very difficult, but something I did learn to do.
I know that no one thinks they will ever have a premmie baby. I didn’t and actually never thought about it.
