http://instatbt.com/Place/pinderfields-hospital/1836599Pinderfields HospitalWell my little man has been with us for 2 weeks now and he's doing amazing! He had a bit of a rough start being in the NICU with all manner of pipes, tubes and what you ma call it's strapped to him, but now he's got just the one stuck in his nose :) So proud of you Elijah! You've made mummy bear and daddy bear so extremely happy with your arrival and we can't wait to bring you home! ❤👼 premprogressbabymiraclecutebeanietinynicusquishy
Your Personal AdvocateYour Personal Advocate2017-10-22My babies turn one Tuesday! I’m freaking out! In denial and a hot mess. The year was so full of anxiety, dr visits 3-4x a week, battling insurance, paying a large fortune and crying inside a lot... BUT it was also full of smiles, the sweetest little laughs, tender touches and two lives that will surely change the world. They already have. twinsnicublooddisorderboygirltwinsmomlifeptsdstressanxietydenialtransfusionpumpingnursingnosleepfourunderfoursurpriseyearhttps://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51.2885-15/e35/22582334_140263363272495_7810248468424818688_n.jpg2017-10-22
Giselle SaundersGiselle Saunders2017-10-22Get yo tissues out! This posts a tough but important one. My most precious memory I hold to my heart of Mason is my first hold. The first time I held my son. The first time I got closer to him than standing next to his NICU bed. I didn’t think I would ever be allowed to hold Mase. I would give anything to go back to that day. The best day of my life. I will never forget it. I was robbed of holding him at delivery and finally a few days later I could reconnect with my baby boy. The pain was real. Mason fitted perfectly into my arms. I could smell him, touch him, kiss him, cuddle him, hold his feet, feel his warmth. I could feel my heart getting heavier and heavier about to burst. This is what it feels like to be a mummy. I hated all the tubes around me, having to be taped to my singlet. Mason had to be positioned in a way not to move his breathing tube. All I wanted was to hold him tighter and closer to me. I was hoping my skin on skin contact would fix him and make him better. I could have held onto him forever. I wanted time to stop. I wanted to sit in that chair for the rest of my life. I didn’t need or want anything more than Mason. It was the most magical moment. I never knew what true love meant until holding my beautiful baby boy for the first time. I am so so so lucky🙏🏻💙⭐️ .

Boo.bsmoothieBoo.bsmoothie2017-10-22Someone once said to me "you have the most incredible job in the world because you get to help mothers keep their babies alive. You give them the gift of making milk. Do you realise how cool that is? My answer -YES it's very special!

Your Personal AdvocateYour Personal Advocate2017-10-21Tonight before bed Micaela and I sat together and spoke without words. We practiced being present. Breathing, feeling and understanding one another by only vision. She giggled a lot initially. Then she calmed and touched my face. She continued to slowly glide her hand down the side of my face. She had a huge smile the entire time. When we spoke again she asked me if I thought she was beautiful. She must have read my soul through my eyes. I needed this calm today. Today was hard. |emotional| exhausting, busy and chaotic. I said no more than I’d like to admit and I allowed tablet time even though I loathe it. I need more time to exhale, to embrace and to find the joy in the journey again. It’s been one heck of a year yall!
