In January 2015 our daughter Grace was born at 24 weeks gestation.
I was told I had PPROM (Preterm premature rupture of the membranes) – my waters started leaking and in turn I developed an infection. As we live in Cavan I was transferred to the Rotunda as they are better equipped to care for babies born before 30 weeks. Grace stayed with me for another 2 weeks when the worst happened- the cord prolapsed and Grace was gone taking a part of us with her. The delivery room was so quiet and still, Grace was tiny yet so perfect. We were devastated.
