Our plans for World Prematurity Day

Find out about our 2021 #MyNeonatalStory message and how you can get involved.

#MyNeonatalStory – our 2021 message

For every 13 babies born in the UK, one baby is born premature. Each neonatal experience will affect families differently, but we know how important it is to feel connected with people who have a similar journey.

There are many parts of neonatal care that can go unspoken; from the overwhelming sounds of the unit to discovering how strong your baby is for the first time. It can make a big difference to read other people’s stories.

That’s why we’re asking parents, family members, friends and healthcare professionals – anyone touched by the needs of premature babies – to share your #MyNeonatalStory and show families in neonatal care they’re not alone.

Join the conversation

Share what you wished you'd known on social media and help spread the message of support and tag Bliss so we can re-share.
