Living through the rollercoaster of the emotions of infertility for five years, to fall pregnant via in vitro fertility treatment with twins that were born prematurely (at 27 weeks) and the loss of my son two days after birth expanded my world beyond understanding.
Experiencing premature birth (one twin natural and the second twin via a classical C-section), the loss of an infant, and having to cope with a tiny person in Neo-natal ICU for 71 days I realised how little I knew about NICUs, premature birth and tiny babies.
Although I have a wonderful network of family and friends I found that the support for those having to deal with a premature baby is limited in South Africa, and for that reason I decided to do something about it.
Projects 4 Preemies is a registered non-profit company (NPC).
Our mission is to inspire, encourage and support families affected by preterm birth with the aim to make a difference in the lives of those fighting for premature babies.”
Supporting our mission is our three objectives of awareness, support and education.
