World Prematurity Awareness Day

This photo was taken just a week after my daughters were born. This is little miss Vs hand, not even wrapped entirely around the first section of my thumb.

November 17th is World Prematurity Awareness Day and being a Preemie means so much more than being labeled as a "tiny baby". Being born premature also increases your risk of so many health complications, and as a mom of two adorable preemies, I first-hand know how it feels to feel utterly helpless and scared. 

So with that in mind, be educated. Support your local NICU and Children's hospitals. Thank a nurse or doctor whose focus is Obstetrics. Hug a parent of a me, they need it.
