Thomas and Oscar’s Story

On Unit: January – March 2021
Gestation: 29 Weeks, 5 days 

In loving memory of Oscar. 

Mam, Lindsey: “Thomas and Oscar were born at 29 weeks due to my waters breaking on Oscar’s sac at 19.5 weeks. We managed to go a further 10 weeks until the birth. Oscar passed away after birth, support and care from Ward 35 staff made such a heart-breaking time somehow easier, and we made so many memories of Oscar for us all.

Thomas spent 8 weeks on Ward 35 and made his way through most of the rooms.

Tiny Lives offered amazing support, from bereavement support, Miniboos (what an amazing idea!) with the purple butterfly emblem to make staff aware of the loss of Oscar as a twin, physio support, parking permits, and teas/food as we spent many hours in hospital. Everyone was so caring.

We met such amazing and caring people throughout our stay – they are all real life superheroes. Thomas is now thriving and such a happy little boy. Thank you.”
