Simpsons Babies

Emma Sutherland
Emma's mum has kindly sent in these pictures and her story. Many thanks to Emma's family for sharing this with us :

Emma was born 6 1/2 weeks early due to me developing pre eclampsia. She was delivered by emergency c section and I didnt actually get to meet her until she was 3 days old. She developed a pneumothorax and needed an operation to correct this. We were told by one of the consultants they could not guarantee her surviving this. It was very traumatic. I remember the nurse asking for one drop of breast milk which would help towards her recovery. I couldnt believe that some little person could survive on so little. It was a very traumatic few weeks but (born 3lb 7) she left hospital weighing 4 lbs 11 oz.

She now enjoys a happy full life and plays on being a Special Care baby a lot !!
