"Obviously it was a real shock for myself and husband Mark. We were actually due to go to Angelsey the following day for a 3 day cottage break to celebrate my Birthday but then Alice decided to arrive which certainly made it a memorable 40th for me! Over the past three months there have been lots of highs and lows and various milestones that Alice has achieved and having her 100 day celebration today has been lovely". Read more (106 KB)

Matthew & Elin Hogg
"Our twins Matthew and Elin were born at 26 weeks in 2007. They were extremely poorly and spent 11 weeks in Intensive Care. During this time we experienced what can only be described as an emotional rollercoaster of highs and lows, not knowing from one day to the next whether they would survive. Matthew and Elin are now two lively 5 year olds attending school at Ysgol Glanrafon in Mold. We have no doubt that without the outstanding and dedicated care of the staff in the Neonatal unit it could have been a very different story"

"Oliver was born on the 30th August 2011 at 27 weeks gestation weighing just 2lbs 3ozs; nothing could have prepared us for what came next. He spent the first 11 weeks of his life in hospital, whilst this was a very stressful time for us as a family; the staff at the Countess of Chester Neonatal Unit dedicated themselves to providing a superior level of care for Oliver whilst looking after us as parents too!"
