"After all I'd been through - to go on to have a healthy pregnancy with Cicily was a wonderful experience"
Cicily’s older brother Logan was born prematurely at 28 weeks – he is now a healthy eight-year-old!
In 2011, Cicily’s mum Louisa became pregnant with Cicily. She was classed as ‘high-risk’ so had to be referred to St Thomas’ Hospital. She was given an abdominal stitch to ‘lock in’ her baby along with the Hologic Rapid fFN test – which identifies the likelihood of giving birth early.
Thanks to these interventions Cicily was born on December 29th 2011 – at full term. Watch her story in the video above.
