Miracle Mum, Meghan shares Aubree's story.
"I presented to Campbelltown hospital in the height of COVID with some very minor blood in my discharge. I was 23+2 weeks pregnant.
When I was checked they discovered I was 4cm dilated, so I was taken to Liverpool hospital so we could be close to the NICU. I managed to hold on until 24+6, when Aubree was born screaming and was described as ‘feisty’ by the nurses.
We’re on day 75 of our NICU journey and throughout that time we’ve had many, many ups and downs. Aubree was transferred from Liverpool to Royal Women’s by NETS because of suspected necrotising enterocolitis (NEC). She ended up having a bowel obstruction - which the amazing surgeons removed.
Aubree is currently 36 weeks and we really hope we’re on our way towards home. At this stage there is no guarantee we’ll be home for Christmas, it’s all up to our little warrior - continuing to grow and get stronger."
