Your details

Your blog idea

Please tell us your idea for your blog post in the box below. You do not need to write the whole story at this stage - just let us know what you would like to write about and we'll get back to you.

You might want to focus your blog post on one of the following suggestions or come up with an idea of your own:

  • An event or moment of your neonatal journey that stands out to you
  • A medical condition that affected your baby(s) during pregnancy, time in hospital or beyond.
  • Top tips you'd like to share with parents
  • Campaign issues you care about
  • Life at home after your time on a neonatal unit

(A media case study is someone who is willing to speak to a journalist about their experience of having a premature or sick baby to raise awareness of our work. We will always contact you about media opportunities before agreeing to anything with a journalist.)
