Oh that is fantastic
I was reading today about kangaroo care in Bogota and they got the survival rate for tiny babies to jump from 0% to some phenomenal percentage - 72% sticks in my mind and I don't have the book on me to check, but something astonishing.

Amazing!
A collegue's wife gave birth to a premature 24 week old baby a few years ago.
That's the method they used at the royal free in london and it saved her!

It could have been such a heartbreaking photo but my goodness, the will of that little baby to make it - incredible. Tears here too.

Impressed also that the mother was obviously ensuring that her milk supply was maintained so that she could start breastfeeding 4-5 weeks after the birth.

I hope I'm not going to spoil your mode but I can't help thinking of doctors giving up so easily. it was lucky mum followed her instincts. I wonder how many more babies could have been saved though.

A fantastic story!

When DS1 was born premmie and taken to a different hospital than I was in it was DH who followed him and did the kangarooing thing. I think he bonded with him faster than I did and I have the most beautiful photos. I think every baby should be allowed this experience right after birth instead of all the other mostly unnecessary rubbish that they do with them.
