Location: Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire
Campaign: To support the parents of unwell or premature babies

My son Jacob was born three months premature when I was 19.

 

The medical care he received was absolutely brilliant and although it was touch and go for quite a while, he’s now a healthy little boy fast learning to walk.

 

I did however feel that emotional support was lacking for me as a mum, both while Jacob was in hospital and afterwards, when he came home. I could really have used someone to talk to about my negative feelings. Eventually I was diagnosed with post-natal depression.

 

Fixers has helped me create a booklet for parents who find themselves in a similar situation to me.

 

I want to give mums and dads some practical advice and, through my own experience, to let them know that they’re not alone.

Rachel Blockwell helped me with this Fix. 

The following people supported me with this Fix: 

 

Julie Morgan from Seren Bach

Sally Owens and Carissa Strangward from NHS Wales 

Melanie Louise Rossiter

Kimberley Davies

Tina Lo
