Miracle Mum, Rebecca shares Lila’s story.
"After 7 months of blissful pregnancy my waters broke and within hours I had given birth to a baby girl.
Although her weight of 2100g was good, her lungs were not strong enough and she was transferred to The Mercy NICU where she went from bad to worse.
After a few touch and go days, where we were asked to come back to the hospital in the middle of the night as they had nearly lost her, Lila started to kick goals and go from strength to strength!
After 9 days in the NICU she was transferred back to the Cabrini Special Care until for a further 6 weeks.
Lila turned 8 years old this year and is a strong, confident girl who is actually now the tallest in her class! She continues to kick goals".
