I can't say that I have experienced the feeling of giving birth to a premature new born.
I have however seen the turmoil that parents have gone through as a result of a beautiful baby boy or baby girl putting in an early appearance.
I cannot imagine how the new parents must feel, the utter fear and worry must be overwhelming.
Whether its family or friends that support the proud parents during their most difficult times, recognising the 17th November as World Prematurity Day as a must.
November 17th 2012 is World Prematurity Day.
One million babies are taken from our loving arms too early every year.
Make sure you do your bit to show your support.
