“I was born 3 months early. I had treatment for my lungs, a ventilator to breathe and was fed through tubes. I wasn't expected to survive a week. I'm proud of graduating university and becoming a beauty queen where I raise awareness for babies in neonatal care” #MilestoneMondays https://t.co/GddsAwd21H

#ParentsArentVisitors it's essential for parents to be partners in delivering their baby's care. @Blisscharity @BAPM_Official & @RCPCHtweets all have guidance for maintaining access during COVID-19. Urgent action needed to support local policy change & reduce widespread variation https://t.co/yDFvhsOcGB

Good to see this issue highlighted - @Blisscharity working hard to improve parent access to NICUs but national guidance urgently needed https://t.co/lFKxhuES6o https://t.co/wPmddlmBdD

Many parents find equipment on the unit overwhelming when they first arrive. The sounds from equipment in particular can seem alarming. Some parents find it helpful to know what the equipment does and how it helps monitor and provide support for your baby: https://t.co/cOtc6PRiAS https://t.co/Ti7GJxcnrF

The units taking part in our Baby Charter Programme evidenced 27 improvements in promoting a quiet and restful environment on their units last year! For example, Lincoln County Hospital were able to extend their Quiet Time period to 2 hours. https://t.co/qI8kRwVlG2

“You never know how strong you are, until strong is all you can be”

When Kim’s baby was born with HIE, she not only faced 14 days in neonatal care, but she had to keep it a secret from her older son who still thought she was pregnant.

Yesterday, UK Governments announced new rules to try and slow the spread of COVID-19. We support national efforts to reduce the virus, however it must not stop parents being with their premature or sick baby. Parents are not, and should never be considered, visitors to their baby

How you process your neonatal experience might be different, but talking with someone who understands can make you feel less isolated. Reach out to parents through our netmums forum, speak to one of our volunteers over video call, or email us at hello@bliss.org.uk for support. https://t.co/MvObw9A8rP

Did you make friends while on the neonatal unit? We're looking for a parent of a baby born at full term and a parent of a premature baby who met on the unit to tell us about their experience.

I took this pic 12 yrs ago, just moments after consultants told us our 16wk premature son wouldn't see out the day. Despite being born at just 23½ wks and pronounced dead, twice, he's a happy healthy handful, who has proved them all wrong.
