Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I am hoping to raise £3,000 by the end of 2012. It costs about £2,000 to keep a baby in Neonatal Intensive Care for 24 hours. Harry was there for ten days.
On the 3rd August 2007, Harry was born weighing 3lb 12oz, nearly two months prematurely and following a difficult pregnancy. He stopped breathing in the delivery room at Warwick and was fully ventilated. He was a very seriously ill baby; stabilising him enough to transfer him into an ambulance was hard and took several hours, but Harry desperately needed an Intensive Care cot. Luckily, Coventry's brand new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit had one bed left, or Harry would have had to travel to Leicester, Bristol, Oxford - or even down to the south coast. He remained was transferred out of NICU back to Warwick, where he spent another 3 weeks. He finally came home from hospital on the 2nd September - Mum and Dad's 40th wedding anniversary - weighing 4lb 12ozs.
Bliss campaign for the improvement of every aspect of neonatal care for sick and premature babies and provide wonderful help and support for parents and family.
Among the issues that Bliss campaign to highlight is that the medical staff on neonatal wards are often placed under unacceptable extra pressures because many, many units are woefully understaffed. An adult admitted to intensive care can expect one-to-one nursing, but a baby often cannot, despite having identical care needs. Staffing pressures througout the UK have generally dictated that one nurse is obliged to look after two babies, exacerbating the staff stressload and impinging on patient care. Bliss is campaigning to highlight the inequality and have this protocol overturned. They - and we - are demanding more investment into training and keeping neonatal nurses so that units will not be obliged to close to new admissions because of staffing problems, sending desperately sick babies on long, dangerous journeys to hospitals with space to admit them. If Mum has had a c-section, she is often left recovering while stranded many miles away from her newborn child, sometimes in the grim knowledge that her child may not live.
