Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

The Winnicott Foundation is a charity for premature and critically ill newborn babies and their families.

On Sunday 12th September 2010, my wife Stacey went into labour at just 32.5 weeks gestation, 4 hours later she gave birth to our beautiful daughter Georgia Louisa, weighing only 3lb 7oz.

Our baby girl was admitted to the Winnicott Neonatal Unit at St Mary's Hospital Paddington where her survival hung in the hands of the doctors and nurses. Slowly she started to improve, though for every small step forward, there seemed to be three backwards, as she fought a series of infections and required ventilation.

At various times Georgia came out of her incubator for a much needed cuddle with her mummy and daddy.

After 2 days in Intensive Care she was moved to The High Dependency Unit where she stayed for 10 days and the prognosis started to look good.

Over the next two weeks Georgia came on leaps and bounds and finally at the end of September was allowed home from the Special Care Unit.

Georgia is now eight months old and is a happy and healthy baby. Stacey and I owe the Winnicott Unit an amazing debt for providing the most amazing care for our little girl. Every premature baby deserves no less.
