Cassius, 29 Weeks

Miracle Mum Cherrylee shares Cassius' story:

"We welcomed our baby boy Cassius on 31st December 2022 at 29weeks 5 days.

Cassius is our 4th baby and the pregnancy was straight forward without complication, until unexpectedly on the 28th December at 29weeks and 3 days my waters had burst.

We rushed to KEMH as I was booked in there due to my own health condition and we saw a midwife who confirmed that my waters were non-existant.

I was admitted on to the ward and started antibiotics to stop any infections and 2 doses of steroids for babies lungs. However both me and baby started showing signs of becoming unwell so were induced on the 30th. Labor was difficult to get going and we were so close to needing an emergency C section as he was becoming very stressed.

Cassius was born 12:33pm breathing on his own and came out crying, he started on CPAP but has since had a few more difficulties so has been intubated but is still doing well. he is currently having photo therapy for jaundice, we've still got a long road ahead of us, but as it is our little boy is an amazing little fighter 💙 and we are so proud."
