World Prematurity Day

Every 30 seconds a premature baby dies, but 75% of fatalities are preventable. Awareness needs to be raised. Today is World Prematurity Day. 

I haven’t much to write as I haven’t personally been affected by prematurity, but I have a few friends that have, and it’s such an important issue that I wanted to write something.

Reading updates, seeing pictures, you feel like you go through the journey with them, but you aren’t actually there. I think if you haven’t personally experienced the trauma of having a premature baby, you can’t grasp how tough it is. I can’t; I can only imagine. Through a good friend Kylie at Not Even A Bag Of Sugar, I’ve come across a few other preemie blogs and stories, and each one just melts my heart, no two are the same, but nobody should have to go through it. 

If you want to get involved, there will be a Twitter party at 1pm, hosted by Bliss. #BlissWPD
