Born a 23 weeks.......OMG I'm in tears here!!


Did anyone watch this on BBC 2, It is just soo sad and made me realise how lucky I am having gone full term with my 2.... It must be so devastating to have to make the decision on whether you should resucitate your own baby!

This was possibly the most upsetting thing I have ever watched before. I was balling my eyes out, my husband came in wondering what on earth was wrong.

I cant begin to imagine how absolutely devastating and heartbreaking it must be to see your baby fighting for it's life and having to take it's life into your hands. I don't know how you could ever get over having to make that kind of decision.

I had to go upstairs just to check on Summer and look at her after watching this. It really puts into perspective how unbelievably lucky I am to have a healthy baby that I was lucky enough to carry to term.

So so sad.

My daughter Alyssa was born at 23 weeks and i wasn't given the option. They see them as a miscarriage but because she came out crying, they had to give her a fighting chance. She lived for 48minutes, and i am greatful that the hospital gave her a chance.

i never watched it as it would have torn me apart. my son was very premature and i also was given the choice to resuscitate him but was told he would not survive as his lungs would collapse and if they were to try i would not get to see him whereas if i let him go peacefully i could spend his last few hours with him. not a day goes by where i think what if i had let them try? although he was so tiny and bruised from the oxygen i just longed to hold him, i felt i knew i was making the right decision. i still think they encouraged me to let him go as i was so young and teenage pregnancy was very frowned upon 11 years ago. i read all the time how babies survive from 23 weeks and i was 24. maybe he had a chance. maybe not. i will never forget my first born, karl. it still pains me to visit his grave but everything happens for a reason. he wasnt meant for earth x

It was heartbreaking. The 18 year old, who is now disabled made some good points though.
