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.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUc3XQHvV0U
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.

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.
