Alongside Olive and her family, many other families have also kindly shared their stories from the neonatat unit here, so you can hear directly from them about why the unit matters. We want to do everything possible to help make the unit exceptional for all the families who need it. 

Connie’s story: Mum Amy, and Dad Jim have written an incredible account of their experience of meeting baby Connie for the first time, a lot sooner than expected. Connie is now almost two, and fit and well, but be warned, it’s a beautiful but very emotional story.

Samuel’s story: Samuel was cared for in our unit when he became seriously Ill, at just just four days old. Samuel’s mum and dad, Nathan and Sarah (with guest appearances from Samuel!) kindly chatted to us about why the unit matters to them.
