Bethany’s story

In April 2009, my mum was having a scan. The clever people in the hospital realised that I was struggling in her tummy and really needed to be out in the big wide world.

If I had understood what was happening, I might have been a bit frightened but I was only 1lb 7oz and should have still had another 3 months getting ready.

My mum was taken in an ambulance from Surrey to Norwich where I was born.

I’ll be 10 this year and I’m so thankful to everyone who helped me. I spent 3 months in intensive care and now I can live like any other little girl my age. I like trampolining and gymnastics and reading books.

But I know it would have been better if I had been inside mum for the full time and I am pleased that she is helping raise money to help other boys and girls be born at the right time.

I would be really pleased if you would support my family as we raise money for Tommy’s

Thank you for reading my story and for giving your money.

Lots of love

Bethany
