This Saturday is #WorldPrematurityDay and to celebrate lots of you are raising money for our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). One special story we’ve received is about Georgia, who is raising money to say thank you for saving her life 21 years ago. 

Georgia arrived early at 27 weeks and two days, weighing just 940 grams! She was taken straight to our NICU department, where she stayed for over a month until she was stable enough to move to a hospital nearer home, before eventually being discharged just before her due date.

Today, Georgia and her colleagues will be marking World Prematurity Day by holding a bake sale to raise money for other babies just like her. Here’s Georgia pictured with Andrew Ewer, one of our Consultants who cared for her 21 years ago.
