November 17th is World Prematurity Day. It is a day to raise awareness of the serious problem of premature birth. An estimated 15 million babies around the world are born too soon every year, and nearly one million of them die due to complications of preterm birth.

Today I wore purple to honour World Prematurity Day.

Blackberry #2 was born on the 25th of november, 2012. His due date was January 31st, 2013. He was born at 30 weeks via emergency C-section due to a placental abruption. They said if I had arrived to the hospital 5 minutes later it would have been too late for him. He was born with and APGAR score of 9/10. He was 1560g and 40cm. Since I was under general anasthesia I did not see him, when he was born. He was taken to the NICU right away by an ambulance.
