About us

This shop is my way of giving back to the unit that saved my son's life (and my own).
My boy was born on December 16th 2020 at just 26 weeks and 4 days, about 13 weeks premature. His birth weight was just 730g (1lb & 9.75oz ) and our NICU journey was 117 days long.
It was around his 1st birthday when I was looking to purchase a birth poster to celebrate his first year and acknowledge all that he has accomplished. It then dawned on me that I could draw my own poster and not only get a perfect 1:1 scale from his birth size but I could make it totally unique to perfectly match that first day we met outside the womb.
I was able to reveal my perfect baby boy from underneath his oxygen mask and I could really remember what it was like to place my hand on him for the very first time. I remembered my hand on his head with his little yellow hat, the texture of his skin, those teeny tiny toes, and how the warmth of the smallest hands I've ever seen could surprise the edge of my finger tips.
It is this moment that every parent should never forget. Whether your child was micro preemie or over due, meeting them for the first time is the moment your life changes for ever. I would absolutely love to help re-create that memory for other families with a unique birth poster.

We have been through so much as a family and we found amazing support in so many different ways while we were at Trevor Mann Baby Unit. This is why my shop supports The Early Birth Association. They help make a positive difference for babies, families and staff at the Trevor Mann Baby Unit, Brighton, and the Special Care Baby Unit in Princess Royal Hospital, Haywards Heath. All donations are made publicly through Work For Good.

Thank you for reading our story.
