On the 7th February 2014, Paul & Emma's daughter Millie was born prematurely at 31 Weeks and 3 Days after her mum suffered from a two week episode of severe pre-eclampsia.
In the same week, on the 3rd February 2014, Micheala's daughter Olivia was born prematurely at 29+6 after her mum suffered with a serious infection.
As you can see from the profile picture they have miraculously not suffered any ill effect from this and are both doing extremely well, also her clinical outcomes are excellent and she's feeding, breathing and growing well.
The reason we are so passionate about the appeal is the fact that the Countess Neo-Natal unit is in desperate need of a re-build that will create a unit twice as big and 'fit for purpose' for the future of the service in the Chester and North Wales area.
This appeal currently needs at least a further £2million to become a reality. If this unit is not built it is likely that this will impact the care and the number of babies that can access this life changing service. Over 450 babies used the unit last year within it's current form and it's current design and capacity will not be able to keep up with future demand
