Hi my names is Danielle but everyone calls me Danni :) I make graphics from scratch for all occasions from pregnancy and infant loss, pregnancy, birthdays, etc to well basically anything. I am selling my graphics in order to raise money for the Southend On Sea Hospital and Colchester General Hospital NICU's which stands for Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit. This is why,
On 25/10/13 at Southend Hospital I had my twins at 36 weeks gestation, they both ended up in the Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit. Claydon because he couldn't keep his sugar levels stable and Ebonie-Rose because she swallowed her fluid from her sack. Ebonie-Rose was really poorly so spent 4 days 3 nights in there, her brother Claydon spent 4 days 3 nights in there. We came home w3hen they were 5 days old.
On 12/11/14 at Colchester General Hospital at 35 weeks gestation Logan James was born via c section, due to fetal distress and I had lost all my waters. Logan was taken to the Neo-natal Intensive Care about 10 mins after birth due to breathing difficulties. He spent 48 hrs in there before they said he could come back up to the ward with me. On the conditions that I eat, slept and rested and took him back down at 12am and 12pm, for antibiotics as we both had caught an infection due to my waters leaking from 26 weeks. We were allowed to go home when Logan was 5 days old.
The work that the NICU nurses and doctors do in order to care and treat our tiny babies is amazing. They not only look after your child/ren but they also take the time to talk to you, check how your doing and explain everything to you. Without their help or support my 3 youngest kids would not be alive today. So I want to raise money to help support the work that they do, as well as help provide the tiny clothes, hats and nappies they use, as well as the care packages for the parents.
I hope you will help me achieve this :)
Thanks Danni xx
