World prematurity day 2020

So fitting that world prematurity day has fallen in the middle of this running venture. Chloe & I got to wear our miracle mumma shirts finally (our team). 
 We attended an event hosted at king Edward memorial hospital, celebrating the amazing work they do for our little miracles. 
Seeing a lot of the amazing Doctors & Nurses that took such great care of Chloe, made me get quite teary.  It was so great for them to see her now, a healthy, inquisitive & adorable little two year old - as opposed to the tiny, fragile little baby they cared for for 4 months. I think it must be such a rewarding part of their job, to see these babies thrive outside of the hospital & beyond. 
So I’m keeping all of the other babies (and their families)  currently spending time in the NICU, in my mind & as inspiration for my running.  
Being in the NICU with your baby, is something I’d never wish on anyone. Heartbreaking doesn’t even begin to describe the experience. 
For me at this time, running is quite the challenge (after more than 4 years with no practice)! So I will dig deep to find my strength to journey forwards.. doing this for other babies out there, really does make this so worth it. 
Thanks so much to everyone who has donated so far! Bloody legends xxx 

Gratitude

Nobody who falls pregnant ever expects that they will have a baby prematurely. My first born, Fynn, was a very uncomplicated pregnancy and birth, born in the water peacefully at term. I expected the same with my second pregnancy with Chloe. But she had her own idea and decided to make an early appearance and was born at 25 weeks. Here in Perth, we were SO incredibly lucky to receive such amazing care in the NICU at KEMH. We are forever grateful to all of the amazing medical & nursing staff there. Thanks to them, our daughter is a picture of health at two years of age. 
There are many parts of the world that lack certain equipment to care for such tiny little babies. Again, we are lucky to have so much advanced technology and equipment for our babies here in Perth. So, hence why I am joining this venture to raise money to help other hospitals gain the funds to properly care for the little miracles that need it the most. 
Thanks so much for your support xxx
