Story

While North Middlesex Hospital originally saved Jasper, the Homerton also saved him and were the hospital that made him better - beyond our wildest dreams.

He was critical and he was lucky he made the journey early that morning.

The drs, nurses, midwives and staff will always have a special place in our hearts.

A NICU nurse called Charlotte, especially, will never be forgotten in our house. She stayed by his cot every day...she came in on a day off to continue his care until he wasn't 'critical' - above and beyond and at no cost to us. 

We found out the NICU are donating for the following:

  • Resus trolleys and bag 
  • Zakky hands and gel cushions
  • Refurbish the breast expressing/feeding room
  • Refurbish the parents rooms

We would in particular love to help the expressing/feeding room and the parents rooms.

Caroline arrived uncertain Jasper would be alive to be fed, let alone breastfeed and ultimately chose to start expressing partly with hope but thinking the least she could do was donate to another sick baby. 

While a private bay with a comfy chair to binge watch Below Deck with the best machines available, its a lonely place for the mums on NICU while hearing many tears heard from other mums and the occasional stories shared on good days, it would be amazing if it could feel more homely for them.

We were also beyond lucky to have a room there for us to stay in so we didn't have to leave our baby but with stained floors and broken curtains (and one of the rooms used for storage) we would love to help make these rooms more comfortable for grief stricken parents and mums recovering postnatally from birth....along with a door that shuts and locks!!
