Home Giving Back Small & Mighty Babies

2Small and Mighty is the brain child of Joanne Hanson – Halliwell which she founded a couple of years ago.  Babysouk.com had the pleasure to chat to Joanne to find out why.

Small and Mighty became my calling when my son George was born prematurely in May 2013. It was quite a traumatic experience, I was on my own as my husband was abroad and within 40 minutes I had gone from a girl in heels enjoying the excitement of pending motherhood to the sudden thud of..I am a parent and he isn’t meant to be here just yet.

For any mother of a premature baby, you will never nor ever be ready for you baby coming early. The first few weeks after George’s birth was just a merry-go-round of blurred days in NICU, breast pumps, tears and my constant hope that every day he would keep fighting, grow stronger, learn to feed and come home.

Our neonatal doctor had encouraged me to not google anything. If you have a question then ask me..I remember that echoing around the room and thought to myself, well we all know what curiosity did to the cat! I kept my promise to his doctor as after all, it’s so easy to get swept away with the “too much information and not enough knowledge” syndrome. But this got me thinking, what if I want to talk to someone who isn’t medical, cry about silly things like never having my hospital bag, crazy but it’s one thing the got me, something I felt I missed. I spoke to the other girls in NICU and they had similar feelings and thoughts to me and this I suppose is when my heart started to beat again, beat in a way that told me good can come out of this. By creating Small and Mighty we have been able to share our excellent contacts in Dubai for when your baby may need that extra support, provide details on where to buy premature baby clothes but more importantly for all those parents who find themselves in a situation that is totally unprepared and be there for them and their Small and Mighty baby.
