Miracle Mum, Melissa welcomed her little guy Henley into the world at 28 weeks. Their journey through the NICU was a tough one and Melissa hopes their story will give courage to those going through it right now.

A story like this is what she needed to hear when things were hard.

“Because when our little man came into the world unexpectedly at 28 weeks, this was the story we needed to hear. 

When we were sat down and told about his brain bleeds, this was the story we needed to hear.

When the future was uncertain and we were told we would have to “wait and see” how all of this would impact him, this was the story we needed to hear.

When we begged for answers and certainty that no one could give us, this was the story we needed to hear.

When we anxiously awaited the results of every head ultrasound, this was the story we needed to hear.

When the beeps of the machines keeping him alive haunted us each night we had to leave him, this was the story we needed to hear.

When he “failed” oxygen trials, this was the story we needed to hear.

When we watched other families leave with their healthy babies, this was the story we needed to hear.

In those first 12 months of physio, OT, speech, development clinics, this was the story we needed to hear.

To all of those experiencing life in the NICU right now, you need to hear this story. May our Miracle baby’s story provide you with the hope and strength to keep fighting.

We were so unbelievably blessed and proud when we received this letter (see below) from our Paediatrician."

Thank you Melissa for sharing your beautiful story.
