Miracle Mum, Casey explains how Nate was their Christmas eve surprise!

"It was my first pregnancy and everything was going well. At 29+2 I awoke with some spotting, I called my doctor and got an appointment that morning. He organised a ultrasound which came back normal. So back home I went.

That night I started getting some period pains so I called the hospital then drove myself there. They checked me out and I was in for observation and some medication to relax my muscles. An hour or so later the pain  intensified and before I knew it - and after reportedly saying it was too early - Nate was born at 29+3.

He was transferred to KEMH. Luckily, I was able to be transferred there too later that day. Where Bryce met me after a last minute flight home and we went in together to a whole new world.

The NICU journey is something you would never wish on anyone. Nate was in hospital for 7 weeks and apart from one or two little set backs it was pretty straight forward.  

Nate is now 3.5 almost 4 and you would never know he was born premature."

Thank you Casey for sharing your story.
