Raising money for RBH willow room

£150 of £500 goal

Raised by 5 people in 9 months
I am raising money to go to the willow and mapledurham rooms in the royal Berkshire hospital maternaty block and I will tell you why...

On Wednesday 12th September at 22 weeks and 1 day pregnant, I was having contractions when I woke up at 6.00am. So I sat on the sofa and timed the contractions they was about 3 minutes apart but not painful, I woke my partner up at about 7.00am to tell him that he will need to take our boy to school, we woke the kids and got the oldest ready for school and our youngest dressed and ready, I phoned my mum to tell her that I need picking up and need somone to watch our youngest, my partner rang his mum to tell her what was going on, She was on her way over to get my partner and eldest to take him to school while my mum and dad come and got me and our youngest and took me to the hospital and my dad looked after our youngest. I got to the hospital they listened to our little baby's heart beat and it was beating strong, I was still having contractions they done some tests, one come back that said there was a 97% chance I was NOT in labour, witch I was, at this point my partner and his mum had joined me and my mum at the hospital they then decided to do a scan witch showed that our little baby had no fluid around him. I never felt my waters break so could have gone at any time. They told us that if i was 23 or 24 weeks they could help our baby but as i was only 22 weeks 1 day he wouldnt suvive as his lungs hadnt developed properly and he needed the fluid to develop his lungs. They then decided to keep me in and keep an eye on me and baby, they booked me in for a scan at 1.00pm when we went for the scan it showed no water around him apart from a little by his chin. We then went back up to the room we was put in, I was still having contractions and they was getting stronger and stronger I was given some pain relief witch helped a little, then my sister come up with some bits that we might need, we then got moved in to the willow room witch was more homely, my contractions had got more stronger and closer together the pain relief wore off and was given the gas and air that I didn't let go of and was also given more pain relief. At 9.50pm our beautiful baby boy was born in to the world fighting at 22 weeks 1 day weighting 1lbs 1oz he was so tiny and small he was placed on my chest where I held him for a while then  my partner held him on his chest for a while. He was held by both his nannys and his aunty before he gave up his fight an hour later, we got to spend our time in willow room with our boy in our arms where he belonged. During the night at 3.00am we got moved up to the mapledurham room where he was beside us the hole time he never left our side we spent 4 days with him in there making memorys that we will never for get. Then it was time to leave him and go home to our other two little boys who missed us like crazy. It was the hardest thing we had to do is leave our Little man. we said our good byes then the nurse come in and took him away we never felt such heart brake but I'm that moment we felt so much pain. We then come home to our two amazing little boys to lots of cuddles and kisses.

So that's our story...

We would like to raise some money to go to the two room that felt like home while we was there and to help other parents going through the same thing as we did.

Thank you for reading our story.
