Hi my name is Pippa and I was born on the 29 Feb 2012. I was born on a leap year check me out!!
One day mummy wasn’t feeling very well so daddy took her to the hospital, I couldn’t wait to see my mummy and daddy so I was born 13 Weeks early phew! The lovely Doctors and Nurses quickly knew I wasn’t well, so I was taken to the Neonatal unit with mummy and daddy holding my hand.
Because I am only small I have a machine called a CPAP which helps me breathe, my heart and lungs are still very small and I get tired breathing on my own. I can’t wait to go home and be with my big brother and sister.
Lots of Love
