Ethan and Theo are our beautiful twins that were born at 28 weeks because of a number of complications. Theo had a dysfunctional diastolic umbilical cord flow (where the blood flow through the umbilical cord was absent and reverse in the final stages of the pregnancy), we also had twin to twin transfusion and Theo’s growth was also restricted. 28 weeks was our milestone and we got there!
We knew that our boys would have a fight on their hands to survive and they have made us so proud! Theo was born weighing 1lb 12 and Ethan 2lb 12. We had a stay of 100 days in the Royal Devon and Exeter NNU, and with the exception of Theo having home oxygen you would struggle to believe that they were the same babies!
Being a mummy to Ethan and Theo is the most amazing gift I could ever wish for and each and every day that goes by they become just a little bit more amazing! Every time they smile or babble and chatter to us makes our hearts melt. When I think of the journey they have had so far to get here I feel such pride that I am their mummy xx
