Preterm birth is always hard for parents. A mom and a baby have to stay in the hospital, and the sight of a tiny newborn in an incubator with oxygen support causes a mixture of numbness, worries, and pain.

New parents and sometimes other relatives stay in the hospital for 24 hours without any rest thinking about all the risks and possibilities of future problems and disabilities the baby might have.

It is especially hard when a premature baby is a couple‘s the first child. And it‘s almost impossible to cope with such a situation if a baby is “extremely preterm”.
Baby Ward was born 3 and a half months early. He was weak and tiny, and to keep him alive, doctors put him on assistive devices for feeding and breathing. His mother got to hold him only on the fourth day after the birth. She couldn‘t stop crying while holding this little bundle of joy who weighed less than 1.5 lbs. Only after 107 days in the clinic, Ward finally got to come home!

The amazing video below shows Ward‘s first-year journey. It is amazing to see how the newborn who didn‘t have much chance to survive grows and develops and turns into the sweetest bouncing baby boy!

      Our baby was born at 24 weeks weighing only 860grams, it was the most emotional journey we have ever been on but so happy to say she is now 7 months old and blitzing life, they truly are amazing little hero’s.

    That hard part is leaving your new baby behind in the hospital knowing there’s nothing you can do for them

    I remember having to go thru this same process. It’s a lot a preemie goes thru along with the mother and father. Babies fight just as well as others. You have to admire a preemie strength, cause it takes a lot

    My sister and I both were in labor at the same time our children are 3 days apart. Her daughter was 9 weeks early and mines was 4 but her daughter came out only 3 pounds. She has advanced so much since then. I love premature babies, my niece has made so much progress and is so healthy.
