World Prematurity Day 2016

November 17th is World Prematurity Day. It is a day to raise awareness of the serious problem of premature birth.

November is also Prematurity Awareness Month, which is very relevant for me since both my preemies were born in November, months ahead of time.

Today I honour all the preemies in the world but especially my sons.

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.  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.

Do you know anyone who was born a preemie?
