promoting the awareness and understanding of PPROM
Mum Hannah Grindley and baby Millie's PPROM story
February 16, 2016
My little girl Millie was born at 35 weeks in September 2015. I went into Wrexham Maelor Hospital in Wales on 3 occasions ( from 33 weeks) telling them I was leaking fluid and that my baby's movements were reduced.
The first 2 visits to hospital I was told my baby was fine and that I was wetting myself!
On the 3rd occasion I went to hospital and was finally given a scan only to their surprise my little girl was only in 1cm of water.
She was born 6 hours later by c section. She was fine and able to breathe on her own. Only that she had to stay on a drip for 3 days.
I can't believe how lucky I am.
This needs to be made more aware and midwives need to be more understanding.
