Personal stories

Supporter Profile Christine Langdon

A consistent theme we encounter in our work is the very special people who choose to get involved. From those who give their time and support to the care of neonatal babies, the families themselves who go above and beyond for others, and the social profit space in general. Learn more about the wonderful Christine Langdon who set up The Good Registry . . .

Wade was classed as being full term as he was only 2 weeks early, he was born at 38 weeks and he spent 6 days in NICU due to having wet lungs.

Levi's story

Levi was born on the 8th of March, 2012 at 7.26am, weighing 8lb 6oz, seemily a healthy happy baby and nothing could have prepared his parents for the journey they were about to go on

Our very own Superman

"The milestones are different in the NICU, like the first time baby can breathe by themselves, the first time they open their eyes after weeks of waiting, the first time they have a blanket you can tuck around them, the first time they fit new born clothes, the first time the suck/swallow/breathe reflex is strong enough to breastfeed, the first time . . .      "
