Before Gwendolyn I didn’t know anything about neonatal care – now it’s almost scary how much I understand of what the doctors are talking about when it comes to Gwendolyn. I never thought that some of the first conversations I’d be having with other mums would be about different methods of ventilation rather than which way round a nappy goes!
When Gwendolyn was born I didn’t see her for 24 hours as I couldn’t move, so all I had was the picture below. From that photo onwards we had quite a journey – all the way to goodbye and beyond. This journey was definitely a life changing experience.
