Hi All

I haven't been on here for ages, but this site gave me my first link to information that really helped me during my high risk pregnancy. I have done a youtube video of our journey in the hope that I may help raise awareness of issues facing premature birth and let ladies who suffer pPROM know that there is another option to termination.

Thanks for watching.

Just beautiful!!!!  Thank you for sharing.  Happy Birthday to your little one!


I have had repeat pPROM with my pregnancies.  My premature babies were born between 32-35wks so our journey was significantly shorter but I can relate to so much of what was was in your clip. Our youngest is now 7 weeks old.  He arrived just past 33wks after pPROM at 32 weeks.

That bought back so many memories for me. The cotton wool on heel pricks, the CPAP, the lights.

Thank you for sharing what I know would have been an emotional and sometimes painful journey.

Congratulations on surviving the first year. Happy Birthday to a gorgeous and courageous wee boy.

your video make me cry.  such a beautiful story.  you must be so proud of your little Blake.

my story is similar - at 12 weeks pregnant i was told my baby had a severe defect and i should terminate.  i refused.  he had an operation shortly after birth, spent a few months in the neonatal ward of the royal childrens and now, ten years later he is a perfectly healthy, normal kid.
