During my twin pregnancy I worried everyday.
Labour started at
34+6wks and midwives supported us through the emergency c-section and
kept our babies safe until nicu took over.
3 days later my nanna
After a week in
hospital, babies in nicu and loosing nanna I was near breaking point.
A midwife spotted how I
was close to pnd and gave me the best advice.
She reassured me our
babies would be ok and that I should go home.
Leaving was the hardest
thing ever but she was right, I became stronger for my children.
I will be forever
I have written this 100 word piece about my experience with midwives as today Save the Children are starting their new campaign #FirstDay.
I was amazed and saddened to read that every year 1 million babies die on their first day of life!
This is a staggering figure that Save the Children want to reduce, hence this new campaign.
There are a number of ways in which you can help.
* Donate - by texting COFFEE to 70090 this text will donate £3 to help this campaign. £3 will buy 10 tubes of antiseptic cream which could save 10 babies lives in under developed countries
* Sign Save the Children First Day Petition - David Cameron could lead a global break through by encouraging the world to provide more training and funding for midwives. Please sign the petition asking him to sign up to Save the Children's Newborn Promise, a plan which aims to ensure that by 2025 all children are born with the support of a midwife.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post and I sincerely hope that you will support this great cause!
