We recently celebrated World Prematurity Day so it's lovely to have received these gorgeous pictures from former NNU mum Harriet whose son Finn was born at the UCLH neonatal unit in February 2016 at just 24 weeks. He had excellent care and is now a happy and thriving 4 year old.

Says Harriet, "Our experience with Finn taught us that there is hope, even for some of the sickest babies. When Finn was going through his incredibly turbulent NICU journey, I would never have dared to dream that one day he'd be careering down a hill on a pedal bike at four years old. Now, as I run along behind him, I sometimes pause and realise I'm experiencing something I could only dream might be possible. I didn't believe we could get here but we have and he's happy and safe and thriving. We are so thankful for the care he received, which was nothing short of exceptional.

Thank you so much for sharing this 🥰🥰🥰

It’s #worldprematurityday and a year since we celebrated Early Lives birthday with a party for graduates of our neonatal unit, families and staff. Here are the memories of a special day. Today, we celebrate the milestones of some of the tiniest and most fragile babies and look forward to a time, hopefully soon, when we can again get together to celebrate. 💜❤️💙

Early Lives
Happy Birthday to us! 🥰 🎈🎉

This week, Early Lives turned one and we celebrated with a party for former babies and families and staff. These are some of the highlights.

We are very proud of what we've achieved since we launched, are grateful to all our supporters, fundraisers and donors who have made this possible and look forward to the year ahead with excitement! #birthdayparty #celebration #cantbelieveitsbeenayear
